about

Geek fact: Written in the privacy and isolation of a house in NSW's Southern Highlands, Alex is unable to talk about what this song is about. He only ever sang it once in public.

lyrics

I never want to hear
That sound again
Still it ripples through my blood
Words of comfort bounce like rain
This land can’t take the flood
And no amount of busy drowns
Those reverberating tones
And no amount of running
Distances those chromosomes
When a beautiful old lady woke
From something like a spell
The coldest resolution
Cracked its icy shell
So it isn’t thunder now
That calls its retinue
Its just another tremor
In the DNA from you
I never want to hear
That sound again
