lyrics

know the answers are in there, somewhere
in the shadow of doubt
what’s the chances that i care what’s in there?
lest i figure it out…

if appearances be what they say that they are
eyes cannot tell
whats the difference if i can or can’t see that far?
it’s just as well

cos the answers are in here, so near
through the water of my tear, it’s unclear
how my own thoughts got blurred

seem to remember something just out of mind
only i wasn’t me
from my own center, dreamt that i was assigned
passing identity

but i’m just pretending
to be resending
a request to see through
and while i’m waiting
i’m understating
the one thing that feels true—
no me, no you.

so i’m going inside now, somehow
to turn back on that light
but i’ll keep my embraces low brow
lest i spoil the fight
and until then, i’m sure that i’ll see you around
helping me out
and until then, remember your breath is the sound
that softly drowns out
the shadows of doubt
so Listen,
within and without.

If my pain is just a warning light to let me know when i’m wrong,
I think I’ll just let it flash until I finish writing my song.

about

The Anomylos Ensemble New York

Anomylos tells stories within stories, shape-shifting between dialects of prog, punk, jazz, classical, and all kinds of folk music, in a basic language of artsong. Self-described as "anti-chamber music", the journey is wrought with colorful reflection, angst, lyricism, contrapuntal word-painting, and arc. Listen on (m)any levels- When the words and sounds fade, the story continues. ... more
