lyrics

After all the frayed disguises rest assured it's a lie
Alarmist. By the way they sympathized. Rose sky

Hope in knowing what an ugly element's on our side
For the moment it's enough to realize we're satisfied

Step aside. Don't look that way.
Suicide. No one's to blame.
The world is magic. More than you can imagine.
Forget the past.
Citizen. Don't love so fast.
Discipline. Consigned to ash.
The world is magic. More than you can imagine.

You are the smallest things you do

Oh, don't be late today.
I want you here. I want you.

While the time counts backwards slowly
On again, off again, on again.
Wild eyes blink back the tears
Come on again, off again, on again. Never end.
Down the line sits darkly, staring
One in a thousand who understands.
Fried mind belonging to the
One in a million who won't return.
Tries to burn inefficiently.
An official physician for show fills a fissure with fissile shivs

SOPHOCLES Los Angeles, California

Sophocles' music has been described as “melancholy reverie rattled now and again by swelling dissonance” (Steve Smith). "Measure You In Days" is the second release from his latest project which takes inspiration from Olivier Messiaen's masterpiece, "Quartet For The End Of Time." It comes on the heels of his 2014 EP "Till The End, My Dear," which similarly riffed on Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." ... more
