Tomás Ford This band! I was obsessed with this band for a good half decade! All of their records! Still one of the best acts ever to come out of my hometown Perth. All of the playing and writing is so perfect. That something this amazing could come from WA really inspired me. Favorite track: Once Upon a Time.

Track Name: Cruel
Cruel 16 magazines of promises your life seems like a strange dream
Cruel 21 the crazy parties throws gives you fear of what is to come
Cruel 36 alone in your room of tricks natures started her wicked tricks
Cruel 44 you start to ask is this all there is, could there be any more

More than this, is this all there is
You count the years, the stupid tears, regrets and crazy fears
In your eyes, 100 tales
Of who are, you wanted to be, a crazy double vision of your doubt
Its so real
The doubt, the doubt you feel
All these women in a room, what do you have? The end is just the past. Its just the past.

Cruel 55 you tried to do as much as you could while your fantasy is alive
Cruel 62 your bodies become a well worked map for all the things you’e tried to do
Cruel 73 its clear to you, who you are and all the things you failed to be
Cruel 88 the cold white walls of the nursing home, hope reflect the wait

For is this all, all there is
After all these years and failed careers regrets and stupid fears
In your eyes 100 tears
Of who you are and wanted to be, cruel and crazy story of your doubt
Its so real, the doubt, the doubt you feel.
All these stories in a room, what do you have? The end is just our past.
Track Name: Science Fiction Song
Its terminal this case, the case that I’ve just stated
I’m so tired, so tired I could just melt straight into you
Straight through to you
An invention for prevention
I promise to make things better
More shallow and desperate

Make spaces make connections
I hand across my chest
Two hours we lay on
Someone whose deep dark eyes show signs of devestation
Straight through to you.
An invention for prevention
I promise to make things better
More shallow and desperate.

Track Name: One Lies, the Other Exaggerates
I want to let go, let go of everything.
You make me feel, like I owe you something more
I don’t need your thanks or to feel indebt to you
Just a little closeness, just some simple closeness

I miss you so much, although I don’t really know you
I feel everything starting and ending
So watch me take cover, a new guide in my mind
Everything I do, doesn’t amount to much as such

I never wanted someone as much as you made me want you
You made me feel without giving me anything
So it broke down and I chose no one
There is always the void of others,
the dreamy void of others like you.

You robbed me of my courage with your silent respite
I lost any power I imagined I had
Id leave everything for you but I wish I already had
This monster of a woman, this monster is only a ghost

So here I stand before you, after all that’s been said
A whole lot of stories around in your head
The wealth of sad experience, jealousy and drive
Something so simple and human, how can it destroy us all
Track Name: Your Smile Betrays You
Your Smile Betrays You
Your smile betrays you, like some half moon
Your past describes you, open eyes, and an open heart
Your wife denied you, when you needed her the most
And your friends defy you, every smile, every word.

Your smile betrays you, as something special, someone strange
But your life describes you, as an ordinary man
Track Name: Taste of Iron
Your smile betrays you, like some half moon
Your past describes you, open eyes, and an open heart
Your wife denied you, when you needed her the most
And your friends defy you, every smile, every word.

Your smile betrays you, as something special, someone strange
But your life describes you, as an ordinary man
[You tell me the truth in your tears, give me your health and your fears, take it all away now, ……its gone]
