about

A reflection on the relief of distance from long-lost toxic relationships of the mouldy old days of being a clueless twentysomething. Laura Hickli sent her incredible vocals over from Calgary, Alberta. Sean Biggerstaff (yes, Harry Potter’s Oliver Wood, the actual Quidditch captain), played fantastic synth-guitar under the last chorus.

lyrics

Found my time to fall out of favour, or so it goes
You assumed we would resume it later, but what do you know
They say that time, it will show the wiser - well, here I am
I was primed for the sacrificing
Inhuman signs when things go wrong will cast you back where you began

Getting stranger by the night
But remaining ordinary
I’ve tunnel vision when I open my eyes
Is it oh so necessary?

I’m worn out from so many years of silence
Harder to conceive a time
When no one is listening to the power to deceive
Caught in a chain of archaic worries
Caused too much agony
I long for things to be dead and buried
Sweet relief that liberates and won’t infect your mind or body

Getting stranger by the night
Yet remaining ordinary
I’ve tunnel vision when I open my eyes
Is oh so necessary?

And is it all because of me?
Everybody temporary
I’ve run out of reasons to be out of my tree
Is it oh so necessary?

One by one
Watch them fall away

Getting stranger by the night
Everlasting ordinary
I’ve tunnel vision when I open my eyes
Is oh so necessary?

And is it all because of me?
All my friends are temporary
I’ve run out of reasons and I’m out of my tree
Is it oh so necessary?
