about

“‘Something Else’ – lyrically, a reaction to social media / phone culture. Inauthentic, schizotypal social media posturing. Lack of privacy, what were previously priceless memories reserved for photo albums shared with family and real friends are now disposable commodity for clicks. Volunteering all our intimate details for ‘likes’. With so many ways to ‘communicate’, we are more alienated from each other and our true selves than ever before. Truly speaks to the ‘mental illness’ pandemic.” – Colin Wylie

lyrics

SOMETHING ELSE

OH THE CAMERA
AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYE, YEAH WE CANNOT FALL
LIFE SEEN THROUGH GLASSES OF ALCHOHOL
TRYING TO FIT IN SOMEONE ELSES LENSE

OH THE CAMERA
AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYE YOU’RE TEN FEET TALL
YOURE LOOKING SO PROUD BUT SEEM SO SMALL
YOU MIGHT BE DYING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE

OH JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME
REAL TIME FOR OUR SELF OR WE’LL CATCH OUR DEATH BY PHOTOGRAPH
CUZ THE FANTASY NEVER ENDS

OH THE CAMERA
SEEN THROUGH THE EYE LIKE WE’VE GOT IT ALL
LIFE SEEN THROUGH GLASSES OF ALCHOHOL
TRYING TO FIT IN SOMEONE ELSES LENSE

OH THE CAMERA
A SCENE IN THE EYE
YEAH OUR LIKENESS CALLS
WE’RE TALKING SO LOUD BUT FEEL SO SMALL
THEY MUST BE THNKING WE’RE SOMETHING ELSE

OH JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME JUST A LITTLE MORE TIME
REAL TIME FOR MYSELF (AND OLDIES RADIO)
OR IT MIGHT BE DEATH BY PHOTOGRAPH
CUZ THE FANTASY NEVER ENDS

YOU CAUGHT ME TRYING TO BE SOMETHING ELSE
JUST KEEP TRYING TO BE SOMEWHERE ELSE
YOU MUST BE TRYING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE
YOU CAUGHT ME TRYING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE
JUST KEEP TRYING TO BE SOMETHING ELSE
