about

Softbone was recorded live during the sessions for Machines He Made

lyrics

Turned upside down like a snowglobe
Earthquakes who shook us apart
But who could survive
The horizon angling this way and that
I was all wrong
I was moonlit
I was fluorescent enough
But you just shut down
There's some twitching and synapses fire
But you're soft boned
Pulse syncopated
The tremors shore you up
Sepia toned, cut down the middle
With arms they carved you up

Turned to a shell by appearance
The protests are never enough
But who could have known
Such a giant
Reduced to the height of a dwarf
Hoping to catch some attention
Try things the other way up
And weaving a tale
Of a golem scaled down in size
When you're soft boned
Hold you together with coloured stitches and glue
Sepia toned, its always the way
That you shrink when you need to be tall
