"A Cloud of Mystery" as written by Thomas Alexander English, Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
Calm those vowels down
No-one's thinking of you right now.
She's dressed up - It's her duty to the town.
It's empty. It's vast.
But it imposes it's will.

In a crowded room
Her painted features smothered in the gloom
Already resigned
At night she scrapes
Away the face that she creates
The mirror sighs

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise from a hundred mouths
Working through memory

Big budget, Showbiz exit
She'll go far.
Acting coy was her favourite ploy
It quickly loses its charm.

The frosted cheek you turned
Will add to your mystique
He burns for you.
I threw myself into your world
Only to come up short

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise from a hundred mouths
Working through memory

King for a Thursday afternoon
Before the time when you withdrew
Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?

Bathroom lights stud the evening
Where the buildings skim the air
Hairsprayed curls push the cheek
As they swoon on a wooden dance floor
There's nothing worse than taking a chance
On an outdated dance

Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?
The noise from a hundred mouths
Cursing through memory

King for a Thursday afternoon
Before the time when you withdrew
Why can't we always meet
Under a cloud of mystery?

    General Commenti think this song is about the desperation to find someone
    and the culture of friday night binge clubbing and drinking and one night stand, but for some secretly hoping it will end in something more

    i also think it's about being disappointed after getting to know someone, and the loss of excitement that you have when you first meet someone new and pin a million ideals onto them that inevitably turn out to be false



    i just downloaded the new album (i will definitely buy it when it comes out) and it's amazing on first listen, cant wait to see them live in a few weeks.

    General CommentThis song is possibly about the buzz you get while meeting someone for the first time... Further more its about how that 'buzz' subsides later on.

    Also, there is some lyric corrections to be made;

    Her painted features smothered in the groom
    -should be
    Her painted features smothered in the gloom

    At night she strips away the face
    -should be
    At night she scrapes away the face

    Kept for a Thursday afternoon
    -should be
    King for a Thursday afternoon

    Bathroom lights start the evening
    -should be
    Bathroom lights stud the evening

    Hairspray curls push the cheek
    -should be
    Hairspray curls brush the cheek
