I heard it on the news today This year there will be no summer And it's the first time in decades This year there will be no summer Pictures on my screen shattering the windshield Tiny bits of frost blanketing the ground Lights on my display and your eyes grew wider The sound of the waves you'll have to do without This year But that can't be true, she said We'll spend time by the shore like we always have You'd better give me some proof, she said Because I don't trust you and I never will again Pictures on her screen shattering the windshield Tiny bits of frost blanketing the ground Lies on her display as your eyes grew wider The sound of the waves oh, you'll do without This year

Darkness 07:08
One day the skies will dye white Lay bare the bones of buildings And the screams will fill these dirty streets One day the skies will dye white One day the skies will dye white We'll stare with severed eyelids And the gleam will sweep the cities clean One day the skies will dye white One day the skies will dye white

Read the signs Don't flash your hidden vows Written in the skyline Deep in the city's plans I'm talking covers of magazines A flagship for the company Lovers and cocaine A chunk of the population wiped out You only back the rules because you're winning Who are we? It's our party we can do what we want Endless power, the love we can devour And when we go crashing down we come back every time Stakes are sky high The game is rigged but still worth a try Figures astronomic, baby Slaves at your command So how about living effortlessly And a vow of silence and sex magic A reasonable tyranny And half of you motherfuckers wiped out A glossed-over version of reality I'll be on my suit & tie, shit tied, shit Like I'm the only one who knows your heart Make me your one and only As long as you love me I'll be your silver I'll be your gold

Black Swan 04:10
We thought it was exaggeration We thought the papers were all wrong The GRPs were selling fast and pricey But still the facts remained unknown We thought it was the last agenda setting But everything just comes and goes We thought it would be just a passing shadow As everything just comes and goes And then the shelves became quite meager A sight we weren't used at all All planes were booked and trains were rather crowded And warmer clothes became the norm We thought it was the last agenda setting But everything just comes and goes And still we thought it'd be a passing shadow As everything just comes and goes And when the dust clouds grew thicker We lost the sight of the sun And when the light bulbs would flicker We realized we were wrong About the year with no summer

Away/Absent 07:25
A new job in a new town Your favorite fix to get you through the day Wild flesh on a big screen Wolfing down lies, junk and aspartame Bright noise To silence what you say Transcendence and video game rewards Dazzling drugs to cast the clouds away So what do you know about sex and death? Nothing Nothing Take me away from here Give me something to escape Drain me Waste me Numb me Take my everything Today I leave it all behind I feel so light I feel so light My burden swallowed by the tide I feel so light I feel alive And I am never coming back

about

A spiked cocktail of city spleen, conspiranoia and personal trauma; blue like the stagnant water in the pool of a marooned holiday resort and heavy like the silence after the next radiant apocalypse.
