lyrics

Variance.
(Corners Of The Mind At Cross Purposes)

This unmistakable drone
Has been for days inside my head;
The tunes develop and twine
around their root note like a thread.
Most basic logical trails
Are drowned by these melodic beds;
All common reasoning fails
The concepts morph to tones instead.

I've got a treasure,
Dysfunctional leisure
I lower my eyebrow
And open my eyes
Is anyone out there?
It's getting quite scary
The patterns emerge
But I can't control their line.

The notes against the thoughts,
The sound against the mind
Overcome I roam
These dimly lit streets at night
And I become a rambling child
Till a side wins, for a little while.

Trees play with shadows and light
As I hum wind castles in this gale.
The shapes now forged by these notes
Cascade around in feeble strains.
Some magic melodies float
Around the culture they transcend
The New has grown old again
Let cynics rot in their disdain.

Dark alleys lure me
down into the Road Locks
I get to the depths
of the Regent's Canal
The road is pitch-black
But the tunnel is glowing
The answers are close
As I head towards the light.

The notes against the thoughts,
The sound against the mind
Overcome I run
Towards this neon shrine
And letters swirl and sine-waves howl
Terrified, I scream, I sing, I smile.

The notes against the thoughts,
The sound against the mind
Overcome I roam
These dimly lit streets at night
And I become a rambling child
Till a side wins, for a little while.
