"Alienation" as written by Chad Thomas, Benjamin Giddings, Andrew Hayes, Stephen Sparrow and Phil Titus....
Our secrets, you hid so well
A time capsule the future will not find.
And in the belly of a catacomb, a fuselage the future will not hide
Swallowed by his pride.
It’s like a mobile phone that can’t phone home.
It’s an endless ringing, and it’s a silent drone.
It’s a passenger, a messenger
A hectic and hysterical inside
They throw away our nation’s pride
And caution to the wind
Like bank notes in the bin. [2x]

So make angels in the snow, love a little more
Live with no regrets, for everything you do
Because although the lights are on, there is no one home.
And everything you are, everything you were,
Everything you’ve been’s not everything you’ll be.

You tell me I’m a grain of sand in an hour glass
So throw me a land line, this is more like a land mine;
Just one crossed wire, you’ll blow the floor beneath our feet
And the houses of the million civilians
Pre-packed with indifference inside.
They throw away our nation’s pride
And caution to the wind
Like bank notes in the bin. [2x]

So make angels in the snow, love a little more
Live with no regrets, for everything you do
Because although the lights are on, there is no one home.
And everything you are, everything you were,
Everything you’ve been’s not everything you’ll be.
We’re really all the stars that burst in the universe
Of our alienation.

Well we’re such a long way from home.
Let’s dance in this universe unknown.

So make angels in the snow, love a little more
Live with no regrets, for everything you do
Because although the lights are on, there is no one home.
And everything you are, everything you were,
Everything you’ve been’s not everything you’ll be.
We’re really all the stars that burst in the universe
Of our alienation. [2x]

So make angels in the snow, love a little more
Live with no regrets, for everything you do
Because although the lights are on, there is no one home.
And everything you are, everything you were,
Everything you’ve been’s not everything you’ll be.
We’re really all the stars that burst in the universe
Of our alienation.

    General CommentThis is what Morning Parade had to say "It was born out of a combination of an old jam and some of free-writing I was doing, I just open a TextEdit window and tap away, I let it all pour out to see what's rattling around in my mind. I find it lends itself to interesting melody and syncopation, but It can also be a creative cul-de-sac. I had to be fairly creative with the placement and delivery of words but I think that is why the melody is so novel. The lyrics come from the kind of shit that's constantly in my peripheral and rattling around in my mind, it's my nervousness about everything that is going on, the questions that I can't answer, that no one can answer. For me its about finding solace amongst chaos, feeling helpless and overwhelmed by the meaning of our existence and the scale of the world and what's going on in it. It's an anxiety I've carried my whole life, I just can't get past it... "It's an endless ringing and it's a silent drone, it is a passenger a messenger, hectic and hysterical inside." It's like having fucking tinnitis or something, that's the only way I can explain it."
