about

This track was part of some experimental jams that took place over a summer weekend at Tone City studio in Scarborough WA. It was then cut and arranged into the current song and vocals added.

lyrics

I see her in the shards of glass surrounding the traffic lights
I see her in the embers of a lit cigarette dancing on the asphalt
I see her in the shallow scars scrawled along the freeway walls
I see her in the spiteful glares of a breaklight explodes and then smoulders

now I know
her words became the marrow of my bones
while all that's left of my spine erodes
I try to let my fingernails grow

Kathy put down your pen I don't think
there's anything you could say
I know I'd have her grace but in every
sweetheart's embrace I only see her face

slow down
white noise on the window
white rapids run along the roads
oil stains burst into rainbows

Kathy put down your pen I don't think
there's anything you could say
I know I'd have her grace but in every
sweetheart's embrace I only see her when I'm standing in the shower staring down the drain and I can't evade the words that all my friends are saying
I tried forgiving myself I tried to fuck it away but in every single sweetheart's embrace I only see her face
