if i wake up blind with the sun in my eyes beating on my brow through the car window. if i close my eyes will i miss pink skies being overcome by black clouds above. but i’m too scared to explain why only days ago i’m sure i died. the brilliance of the rocks below, i’m in control at the edge on my own. arguments and solace from the book inside the dresser drawer. curled up on the bathroom floor billy’s on the radio. if lady day could only know how she’s saving me now. and i will fly away in time. and i will learn to forgive myself.

    General CommentBrilliance definately qualifies as being one of my favorite penfold songs simply because it means so much to me and sums up alot of the experiences ive had lately in life and will have in these coming months of change.This song ( as cheesy as this might sound ) really helped me get through alot and make changes needed personally. "If lady day could only know how she's saving me now" - Lyrics i can seriously relate to. This song is probably the best lyrically-amazing example of what penfold can do musically as well as in text and words. In addittion, the track has alot of transitions with digital voice delay which makes the listening experience very discriptive and simply beautiful. A softer tone from an emotionally driven band.The experimintation landmarks a new sound for penfold and also allows a narration from brian carley (lead singer) like reading a book with the lyrics in the forms of sound and vocals.Sounds that put you in a place somewhere inside your thoughts.Somewhere very deep,very unique and very amazing. In sum - Brilliance.

    General Commentthis is an amazing song. it pertains to so much in a few lines and it is, in agreeance, utter brilliance. I enjoy most of all penfolds work but this song sticks out in my mind. I couldn't hear everything being sad when listening to the song the first time but even then, i knew the power behind it. Its one of those songs that you just listen to and understand it, in your own way. No need for words- but it was a fortunate addition. cheers to penfold
