about

Written during a break from vacuuming the hallway while listening to Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. This, the lead single, was written about a real person with a name that was not changed to protect the innocent. Musically, an attempt to hear how the power pop stylings of Phil Seymour would blend with the gothic synthpop of John Maus, were they to and get it on in the studio together, the result of course being The Future Of Music.

lyrics

I tried to be careful with the way things go
You’ve been running around in a maze I suppose
I thought it easier to take it slow
But I painted myself in a corner, and no

Well I don’t know why
You keep me hanging on a string by your side
When I’ve been talking to you every night
Has my world passed by before your eyes?

Generally this comes as no surprise
Separately just living out our lives
Bethany, your coldness leaves me blind
Hang up or hold the line

Heavily you’re weighing on my mind
Say to me you won’t let me down this time
Bethany, your coldness keeps me trying
Hang up or hold the line

My heart might break and maybe you won’t bend
I’m still hanging around with the need to pretend
Your dog may bark and maybe you won’t bite
I’ve been sticking with you in the hope that you might

Though I don’t know why
I’m subservient to your every reply
And I’ve been talking to you every night
But my dream remains unrealised

Generally this comes as no surprise
Endlessly just living out our lives
Bethany your coldness leaves me blind
Hang up or hold the line

Heavily you’re weighing on my mind
Say to me you won’t mess me up this time
Bethany your coldness keeps me trying
Hang up or hold the line, with ages to decide

Or let me go, go - or tell me, I don’t know, know
Or let me go, woah - or tell me, I don’t know, know
Because of course, I’m falling apart
Temptation’s going to decide this time
Overpower my heart
Make out you’re going to be mine?

Generally this comes as no surprise
Desperately just living out our lives
Bethany your coldness leaves me blind
Hang up or hold the line

Heavily you’re weighing on my mind
Say to me you won’t mess me up this time
Bethany your coldness keeps me trying
Hang up or hold the line, with ages to decide
OR LET ME GO.
