about

caught between two disparate lives, trying to find substance, direction and meaning.
this track was originally going to be part of an EP called 'displacity' (the state of being in more than 2 places and feeling displaced from all of them), but the other material never... materialized. i think it stands on its own.

Track Name: Diving For Pearls
well i rolled out of bed, alone again
although, not quite the same
i miss her here and i hate myself
'cause i know i'm to blame

well i may be cool to a small town girl
but i've always been a fish out of water
she calls me handsome - even 'beautiful'
but somehow, it just don't matter

and i'm diving for pearls
but i'm coming up empty handed
and i'm looking for someone good
but in the surface it's stlll my broken reflection

well this thing inisde that i've become
is killing everything i need
and i've wasted time like a champion
now it's down to the river or the sea

'cause i've been diving for pearls
hoping for some kind of wisdom
and i wanted to be good
but everything i love i leave abandoned
i'm diving for pearls...

in a shattered land, nobody wins
not even the free
between a godless world and a holy war
there is something we need to see

and i'm diving for pearls
but i keep coming up empty handed
and i'm looking for someone good
but it's still only our broken reflection...

...but it's only our broken reflection
but it's only my broken reflection
