"Hands Around My Throat" as written by and Tim/maguire Holmes....
Back down
And touch
The door is shut
In the end

You're just too close
There's no-one here
There's no-one there
I still can't tell

Try this
And you might find
I'm in your face
I see your face

The air is cold
I'm still on hold
I still can't tell
What's been said

Your Hands around my throat
Ask me to let go
Your Hands around my throat
Your Hands around my throat
Your Hands around my throat

    General CommentNo seriously.. I don't pay that much attention to the lyrics because they are basically an instrumental band.. the lyrics are just there as one element along with the others and is just repetitive. Kind of like in Fatboy Slim songs. I get a feeling from it, just like I used to when it originally came out. But now I think about what the appeal is? Funny, I think it diagrams for me, abstractly through it's sounds and conceptual qualities, the internal dilemma of people that are caught between their creative side and their inability to really feel serious about pursuing it, and then, if not that, being left standing in a kind of limbo. Not that it necessarily feels bad. Could it be that authenticity, which was so important to 'indie' music and much of the rock that precursored it since the 60s, could go to the extreme of making one feel playing music itself is somehow inauthentic or poseurish. You ask yourself, what is the purpose of this? And it is thus that you continue to court ambivalence. Somehow work, substance, is the key. Pain, to some extent... the quest to triumph over it. Then having a new understand of 'music' and the pain the artists express via their exuberance. Manic-ness. Final escape of some sort. Freedom if there is such a thing. Maybe the point is to communicate better so that we can all collectively learn more and grow to be better more effective and more lead more substantive lives. The journey to get there is confusing to just figure out overnight.. it takes time and a lot of thinking.. full of twists and turns. Sometimes you are just following instinct as you continue to work hard each day.. and practicing some sort of creativity each day. Then, answers come..
