"Off Kilter" as written by Simon Edward Hutchby, Owen Charles Packard, Karl Louis Edwin Middleton, Joe Roberts and Graeme Watts....
receive
receive - the revelation beaten on a skin drum
using instruments of bone

sheens gone, so tune in
feel the drone

to writhe
to writhe - to a rhythm with the blank eyed primitives
suffer the fire ritual

sheens gone, so tune in
feel the drone

another noise in my head
writhe
look up
head up when the transmitters ready for the signal
to invoke the sun gods

    General CommentAs I listen to this song, I imagine something normal in everyday life, like a tree, and then I look beyond it in a revelation of how it looks thousands of years from now. I was walking in the park one day listening to this album when I saw a bench with grass green nature around it, and then I imagined the bench with an austere setting of cracked soil and dying nature. I have no idea why I thought this at first because I was just listening to the music, not the lyrics. But I think it relates in a way: "Sheens gone, so tune in. Feel the drone" seems like the reality in from of you is abstracted and all that stands is some sort of dark setting. "To invoke the sun gods" seems like the darkness is too much and they want to call on for the sun. Maybe "suffer the fire ritual" is a metaphor for the burning of plants.

    Yeah, I know. I'm weird. This is just what this song means to me.
