about

A bit more serious, lyric-wise, about a relationship gone wrong, with a hypnotic guitar lick and a driving chorus that references John Lennon's solo work and "I Am The Walrus."

lyrics

Another incident, yet nothing’s changed,

He shakes your confidence, and you accept the blame,

You need your freedom now, yet you’re running scared,

The unknown calls to you, but you are unprepared and so…

The two of you remain; you fade into the scenery,

Like figures in a landscape.

You lose your will to love, your life becomes a silhouette,

Like figures in a landscape.

Your sadness is a friend, it keeps you company,

Now you’re so used to it, it’s like a basic need.

His words go ‘round and ‘round, oh girl, just like they always do,

Keep your resistance up, or else he’ll bury you and then…

The two of you remain; you fade into the scenery,

Like figures in a landscape.

You lose your will to love, your life becomes a silhouette,

Like figures in a landscape.

And so, the two of you remain, you fade into the scenery,

Like figures in a landscape.

You’ve given up your soul, your life becomes a silhouette,

Like figures in a landscape.

Figures in a landscape,

Figures in a landscape.
