The lyrics to this song were originally much darker and possibly about cannibalism.

This version includes some pretty shouty vocals which we ended up dropping for the album version. I think this was partly down to Bob's lack of knowledge about screaming safely live and also because we wanted their to be a lot of building tension on the album.


I refract light into
A thousand rainbow colours
I am tasteless
Like a dream
You forgot
Buzzing inside a lightbulb

I fell into falling to
My knees for you

His friends said
He was a shadow
Of his former self, and
He was a shadow on my wall
A glass of water

How can you recognise me
In a crowded room
How can you see
Something to relate to
In this featureless stone

You were always the one
Putting me in situations
Always the one
To laugh when I'd fall
