"Ether Song" as written by and Oliver/paridjanian Knights....
In the ether, in the ether's air
Would you be there? would you be my friend?
In the morning, in the morning rain
In the binary of a data stream

On an airplane, on a radio
All around me in the ether's flow

Under an orange sun
Running from what I've become
What am I running from?

You can't take a photograph of it at night
It lives in the code of a firefly buzzing
It vibrates through brickwalls, keeping their time
It cuddles the creeping chaos coming

I see it more clearly than ever before
I'm in its invisible river flowing
Through everything I've ever been through before
Heads up, something's really happening

    General CommentI'm shocked that no-one has commented on this song. If you didn't know it is a hidden song on the Ether Song album, after Rain City.
    It is a lovely song, and to me, it means that no matter where you go there is always something positive around you, and that you just have to learn how to look for it.

    General Commenti havent heard this song for about three years and i just heard it for the first time and was instantly transported back in time to when iwas obsessed with it. my best friend had been the driver of a deadly car accident. i was at the beach in california for 2 months and everyday i lay at the sun-drenched beach listening to this on repeat. it complimented my inner feelings of feeling hopelessly lost and confused and total desperation. it represents everything i don't know...an endless abyss."you can't take a photograph of it at night...through everything i've ever been through before" it signifes one of my darkest moments. its the ultimate contridiction like being lonley while surrounded by friends. I loveit.

    General CommentYou should see them perform this song live. They play it on its own, not after 'Rain City' like in the album. It's so surreal and atmospheric, as there are visuals of blue-ish waves of barley/wheat dancing in the wind, playing on a screen behind them. And Olly's voice - wow, you can really hear the emotion in it when he sings this song live. It constantly reminds me why they're my favourite band ever - can't wait for Dark On Fire, out in September!
