about

Released in a very limited way in 2003, the band was playing as a two piece with a VJ Tim Webster providing incredible sights across the usual classic venues of Melbourne. This was lauded at the end of 2003 as "The Best unreleased Pop Release of 2003" by the 3RRR station in Melbourne.

lyrics

THE CURVATURE OF THE EARTH

Cliffside looking down
Highside I couldn't die
Sunlight is painting you
My heart is in my throat

Air seems so easy to breathe up here
We were swaying in the heavy squall

Ship lights and red nights and slipstreams on weary skies
We watched the rise felt it all
Standing on the edge of greatness and nothingness
Carrying us on through the cold

I could drop today or smile again
This thin bluest line
Curves out of sight

Where the glass is clear
And water's glass
Golden beams of warmth
And worlds apart

We are tired today
But know nothing is wrong
Sunlight is painting you
My heart is in my throat

Air seems so easy to breathe up here
We were swaying in the heavy squall

Ship lights and red nights and slipstreams on weary skies
We watched the rise felt it all
Standing on the edge of greatness and nothingness
Carrying us on through the cold

I could drop today or smile again
This thin bluest line
Curves out of sight

Where the glass is clear
And water's glass
Golden beams of warmth
And worlds apart
