lyrics

I talk in circles cos I can't stand squares
its a lifetime decision for people with no vision
goin' nowhere

Well, we've drawn a strange geometry
it's just two dimensions you and me
tangled symmetry

We stand looking outto see where we've been
with one easy move we've unraveled the truth
the lala bird sings

We have scaled new heights to see what we've destroyed
I put a cross through it through everything
returned schadenfreude

When I cover my eyes
I see a silhouette fall
When I cover my ears
I hear the oceans form
There ain't nothing left
what the fuck.

Perhaps best in someone else's words:
"Flickers of Cabaret Voltaire..…jabs early 80s Gaelo-celtic geetar melody generously wrapped in an Eno-esque crust with undertones of post-industrial industrialness"
