"Vibrations in Air" as written by and Joshua Jon Pyke....
Thinking 'bout the times I know I should have taken photographs
Something to rely on, sharper than a memory.
'Cause chemistry dictates them, they're not coloured by emotion,
They're coloured by the shades of how things used to be.

And nothing breaks the heart much more than looking at old photographs
When you can taste the moment, and worse still, if it's passed
They're gone now to the future, but you still can't deny them,
like a song that's sung.

Regret, is like a filter,
that colours all your endeavours
And once put on becomes a feature of your current works
What i fear,
is that all of these things I hold dear,
never become more than vibrations in air.
Vibrations in Air.

Voices in the air, they echo in my head like radios,
scratchy frequencies and static in between words
They're all on the wind now, but I bet I never told you,
I missed you when you were gone.

Regret, is like a filter,
that colours all of your endeavours,
and once put on becomes a feature of your current works
You gotta change your focus, turn your eye to something else
'Cause once put on becomes a feature of your current works
What i fear
is that all of these things I hold dear
never become more than vibrations in air.

    General CommentThis is all about regret, and looking back. How you can look back at something and all you see is your emotions and feelings and you don't see the facts. How you can regret the things you did or the things you didn't do, and how much it hurts.
    It talks about how it's so scary to think that these memories might fade away one day. How it's strange that something so important isn't permanent.
    And ultimately this song is trying to tell you not to let regret dictate your future, while still holding on to the memories which made you who you are.

    General CommentOn the dot, tiger_myfriend. I remember after a breakup of sorts when I bought the Night Hour sessions, it was just after I had a falling out with friends, thinking about how I wish I'd taken photos of us all more often... this song pulled tears from me, esp. when the wounds were still fresh. THe fact we all like to paint and I like the schematics and science behind photography diudn't help my pain much either, but I can listen to this song and just enjoy it for what it is: another of JP's lyrical masterpieces.
