Something in the way that I
Or the way.....?
Something in the shape and sound of your way

Will I fall to decide or will I grow to the meaning here
Or will I keep open eyes
I can still feel the beating of...us

'Cause I keep searching and all I ever find is a way things could be
Don't stay
'Cause I leave burns here for the mind

Something in the way that I
Or the way.....?
Something in the shape and sound of the way....

Somehow emotion feels stronger than I've felt for so long
I've grown here in this moment
I feel closer than I've felt for so long why?

So I keep searching and all I ever find is a way things could be
Don't stay
'Cause I leave burns here when all I ever find is a way things should be
Don't stay
For I get burnt here when
All I ever find is a moment of a word
The colder I become
Because I'm holding on inside

And I don't feel you there
Out there
I see you there
Out there

Why not come closer?

So we don't fit so we pretend so

So we don't fit so we pretend

    General Commentmy favourite DLC song, easily. the melody is so flawless. Unfortunately the lyrics are so hard to interpret, and then ... trying to understand them is an even bigger challenge!

    Perhaps it's about two people clashing, the persona is trying to find some sort of common ground, but they 'don't fit' and the more he tries the colder he becomes and the more pain he brings to himself. The 'why not come closer, so we don't fit so we pretend' symbolises some sort of dysfunctional repetitive cycle of abuse where they can't let go, but they pretend to make it work(?) and because the lyrics are repeated, that may reinforce the repetitive nature of the crisis.

    I just love hearing his voice, hitting all those notes, and that guitar, and the bassline!... epic song. they really have their own unique sound i've never heard before. i'm thinking of parts of tool, the mars volta, and The Butterfly Effect are all in there, but they're so original. Score 1 for aussie music. DLC, keep up the amazing work! this is arty stuff!

    General Commentyea, that seems to be about it, however it may not necessarily be 2 people. It could be himself and his creator "GOD". but i am swinging a little closer to him singing about a chick, but ill keep an open mind about it. I guess only the great KIM BENZIE could answer that 1 for us.

    General CommentMy belief is that a couple has broken up, and chose to remain friends. But because of that, the man wants even more to be a part of her love life. He thinks of all the ways they could have been together. He realizes that if they continue to see each other only as friends, he'll end up hurting himself. So he regrettably end their relationship entirely, with a broken heart and a clear mind.
