"Is This Where You Live" as written by and Kilbey....
Oceanic lights are cleverly dim
Blueish features in the lower reaches
We raise our traffic flares to him
Fishnet, girlish, the red ones spark

Holy arcs tracked in the dark
The more I see, the less I look
Here's another name I took
Listen! In the early morning air

The remnants of their eveningwear
Branching off, the road winds east
Deluxe locations just near completion
Come dine with wine and oyster feast

The pearls are real, have one for free
They're washed up by the foam waved sea
The more I look the less I smile
Never mind let's stay awhile

The fans blow secrets on the night
Out of mind but not out of sight
Is this where you live
Broken voices the nylon choir

Nothing left to stoke that fire
All they own is on their tongues
They never see or wonder if
Is this where you live

Thin dogs don't vie for bones
Why desert just to be alone
All they own is on their backs
They can't believe it's you I'm with

Is this where you live
Don't blush as I brush your touch
No need for any speed or rush
All you own is on the floor

I'm buying all you're gonna give
Is this where you live
Coffee stories, the lying truth
Electric lights don't help my youth

All I owned is on my face
Urbane mirror anger myth
Is this where you live

    General CommentI'm not convinced that this actually means anything, but I love it. It's like two completely separate songs. I just love it played live when (after nearly 4 mins) the guitar kicks in.
