Animals in my Mind

A song inspired by a bizarre dream…

‘I wash my new suits in the rain and my old suits in the drain
And my double-breasted pillowcases all just seem the same.
I think I better hide. I think I better hide.

I’ve got a pet that’s shedding hair on a chair that isn’t fair
On a cushion that I made for me when I just didn’t care
And they call to me- I think I better hide. I think I better hide.

Animals in my mind. You are me
They’re taking my, taking my time. You are me
‘Cause animals in my mind. You are me
They’re taking my, taking my time.

More than just a name, so much more than just a game
And the cards that nature’s dealt to me are more than what I claim
And they call to me- I think I better hide. I think I better hide.

Long to see me for a breath of air.
I think I’m scared of animals in my mind. You are me.
Taking my, taking my time. You are me…

Think it’s more than a sound, creatures moving around. Feel the animals take you higher.
Downloading complete- they’re reprogramming me. Self-triggering sanity excision.
Creeping into surround, put your ear to the ground.
Are they real, are they synthesizing my mind?

Spotlight in the Sun

This was the first single from our debut album ‘Living Receiver’ (2009), which has just been re-released. Guess you could say this is where it all began for us…

‘What’s wrong with me? Shall I come clean? ‘Cause there’s a spotlight in the sun on me.
This drink means more to me but I need more as this spotlight shines down for me.

You’ll see that she…
She’s capturing the crown
She’s trying to bring me down
Before the second round begins.

I’m standing still. No room to move or fill as this spotlight shines down on me
Caught in the sun, but I don’t know which way to run as this spotlight shines down for me

To my disgrace this light’s embrace is holding me again
In place of who I am this empty man is staring back at me.

Caught in the sun- but I don’t know which way to run
As this spotlight shines down for me.’
