Lyrics

New Eye

Written By: Cameron Kennedy

New EYE

Dm F# E Riff
Looking through your new eye
A secret yet perfectly told
A story that’s so ancient its new
C B C
Illuminates you’ve forever been

I see it its heart
I feel it its mind
The light is the light of reason
How brilliantly it shines D major

D A
I’m saying things that ive always said
G D
The difference is I’m hearing
D A
Given away the need for death
G D To Dm riff
Cant you see me turning

Solo

I see it its heart
I feel it its mind
The light is the light of reason
How brilliantly it shines

Double Chorus

Break Me

Written By: Cameron Kennedy

Break me down

Verse 1

E7
Meanings are written in time so
C#m9
It seems like you’ve worked out mine so
E7
Before you write me off
C#m9
Come see what you’ve lost and

Chorus

D A E Bsus4 B A
Break me down . Fall from here

Verse 2

Dylan, freud and nabacov
Don’t know where they were off so
Here’s the truth for you
What you remember was never true and

Break me down, fall from here

A particle can’t become a wave
It’s impossible for you to stay so
Leave your thoughts at the door
You don’t know what they were for and

Bridge

D (in 5/4)
Graceless in flight without beauty
C#m
In language of truth
B
Why do you fight all your progress
A
I’m not that cool

D
I don’t come from here
C#m
And neither do you
B
Why do you keep telling me
A
That this is you

D D/b F Em G
Dm Dm/b F Em G
You sunk behind my eyes
You swallowed up my lies
I watched the sky urn blue
I stood and cracked in two

Chorus

Bb D
NOW’s the time to find you wake up
Bb G
To all the love you thought you lost
Bb D
Today is the only reason
Bb G
To give you what you thought you’d lost

F Eb Bb
I am the only one
You held the stars and the sun
You see the light in my mind
F Eb Bb F Cm
I have only one in time, its you by my side

Verse2
You caught me off my guard
I fell into you
Shot me in the heart

Chorus

End on Gm Vamp

Sweet Thing

Written By: Cameron Kennedy

Sweetest thing

E7/9, E9
The sweetest thing that I’m ever gonna see
B A
Wont be with my eyes
E7/9 E9
The finest thing that a heart could ever feel
B A
Cannot be trapped inside

And I know that I’ll be coming around
My hanks for coming down
Cause ive had things trapped inside for so long
I’m happy to see them gone

The greatest sound that im ever going to hear
Wont be heard by the blind
Ththe greatest thought that I’m ever going to find
Was always in my mind

E9
I dont know what its going to be
C9 G
Forever free
E9
I don’t know what its gonna be
C9
Forever me
