Fading Man 04:16
A man looks out from a sea of faces An outstretched hand but no one takes it A desperate plea from a feeble voice The mouth moves but it's talking to itself Night, night, endless night And there remains An ever fading light Cacophonies of good advice Of wishings well and sorry smiles The words have lost all meaning now A desperate man talks to himself again Night, night, endless night And so remains An ever fading light

The newspapers sing of the mess that we're in I’m not really sure its important to me A warning is there in the books that I read Please will somebody tell me what I'm really meant to feel Eternally grateful that I have a voice That I get a say and that I get a choice But what does it matter and what does it mean? When you don’t even know what it is that you really need Quiet frustrations I carry all day A sickening feeling that won't go away I don’t have the words to express what I want to say The joke has been lost and the irony’s dead I champion truth but it hangs by a thread The world I have known until now has been turned on its head I gather my worries and cart them around One day I'll finally write them all down I'll muster the courage sometime but for now I feel such a fool, too embarrassed to say them out loud Quiet frustrations I carry all day A sickening feeling that won't go away I don’t have the words to express what I want to say A nervous exhaustion I can’t seem to shake I fight it for all of the difference it makes I’m hoping against all hope that I've got what it takes Quiet frustrations I carry all day A sickening feeling that won't go away I don’t have the words to express what I want to say Suspended with nothing to cushion the blow Worked half to death but with nothing to show These quiet frustrations are all that I'll ever know

Frozen Lake 06:09
Nothing, nothing can change Washed away in seas of grey Stuck here in a maze Struggling to see a change of days But neither asleep or awake Left here in this frozen lake Neither asleep or awake Stranded in this frozen lake Nothing can bother me Those turquoise eyes will always see Lost here in the sand The little bastard has tied my hands But neither asleep or awake Left here in this frozen lake Neither asleep or awake Stranded in this frozen lake I’m coming home, coming home, home I’m coming home, coming home, home

The goals will move themselves around The rules will change again And all is not all that it seems The walls are closing in The best of times, the worst of times A nameless, shapeless fear. They're taking us for fools you know The brave new world is here Where once you stood you'll stand no more You'll dare not speak your mind History books rewrite themselves Before your very eyes The plans are not for you to know Just sow and you shall reap And put your faith in greater things The lord your soul to keep Where once you stood you'll stand no more You'll dare not speak your mind History books rewrite themselves Before your very eyes And when the camera's zooming in The cracks begin to show But while the lens distorts and distracts How will we ever learn?

A grand idea, an evil plan A ruse, a joke, a farce, a scam There’ll be no coming back from this A blight on all our histories Another fine old mess we’re in. While some among us live like kings The rest do what we’re told to do The many gladly serve the few And now, here they are, There for us, haven’t we come so far? Heads held high, standing tall, Unashamed and happy to lose it all And so we find ourselves again In rows of ordinary men They take their bows, depart the scene And disappear unheard, unseen But for now, here they are There for us, oh how we’ve come so far Heads held high, standing tall Undeterred and ready to lose it all Your glorious experiment Made enemies of peaceful men And while one day their scars will fade You’ll hang for all those grave mistakes you made

Listen darling it’s not enough Listen darling I’m setting you free I’m looking for some darker stuff Listen darling it’s you not me I’m sorry sweetheart but it’s time to go I’m sorry sweetheart, it’s your ‘nine to five’ I’m not the person you think you know I’m sorry sweetheart but I’m barely alive And now that you know I’ll drown you in my sea Now that you know I’ll leave you here, hanging from my tree Forgive me angel but my hands are tied Forgive me angel but the air is thin This growing hunger I just can’t hide Forgive me angel but I’m full of sin Now goodbye my love, it’s best if we don’t call Goodbye my love, I find I just don’t care That dirty face pressed against my wall Goodbye my love, it’s more than I can bear And now that you know I’ll drown you in my sea Now that you know I’ll leave you here, hanging from my tree It’s over now, the light has faded fast It’s over now, let’s think of ‘if’ not ‘when’ I’d love to stay but it just won’t last It’s over now, she’s going to go again And now that you know I’ll drown you in my sea Now that you know I’ll leave you here Now that you know Now that you know Now that you know Now that you know Now that you know

What happens when the time runs out? What happens when it's gone? Who's to say how things turn out? Will I feel it when it's done? I got it out of proportion Couldn't see the wood for the trees Couldn't make out the beauty That was there in front of me Your trembling hand in mine If we survive, or if we die You jump, you know I follow you In the blinking of an eye It’s flying by too fast now We’re growing up, we’re growing old We’ll have to find our own way out Under a cloud that isn’t gold I got it out of proportion Couldn't see the wood for the trees Couldn't make out the beauty That was there in front of me There in front of me I got it out of proportion Couldn't see the wood for the trees Couldn't make out the beauty That was there in front of me

The moment that you lose control The moment that it all takes over you It's not your fault. Loosen your grip Just open up. Let it flow over you. Wind in your hair Cobwebs away You'll wonder why you waited all this time It’s what you want It’s what you want Your secret self The life you almost had I get it now I understand Just one more chance Next time i’ll get it right Your just desserts So go ahead It’s there for you What are you waiting for? Wind in your hair Cobwebs away You'll wonder why you waited all this time It’s what you want It’s what you want Your secret self The life you almost had There it is There it is I can see Now I see everything There it is There it is I see it now I see perfectly I see perfectly

Train arrives late on a cold Leicester morning I'm shielding my face as the snowflakes are falling I'm out of the station, the city is singing The subway's alive, the harmonies shimmer I slide down the slope to the music and shelter From snow as it spirals and winds helta-skelta Anonymous, beautiful sound ricochets Jeff Buckley's alive and he's singing today I’m late now for work and the music is fading I fly over people and litter and paving I’m into the office all shaking and sodden The work has begun, the music's forgotten
10.
Hides behind his friends Keeps himself to himself No one will bother him Tries not to offend Keeps walking straight ahead Waits for the world to come to him Turns left instead of right Waits in silence at the lights Knows what's required of him tonight Waste away, just hide your light Waste away, become the night Takes his foot off the brakes Keeps staring straight ahead Nothingness is preferable to grey

about

Divisions London, UK

Divisions was founded by school friends Matt and David. They started writing songs together, self-producing demos, some of which remain in their set to this day. The musical direction was clear... introspection, rock sensibility and detailed vocal arrangements. Joined by two more school friends, Lloyd & Kris, and then Adam (Matt's older brother). Live shows incorporate Kris's stunning visuals. ... more
