Lyrics

Drowned Sun

Written By: John Oh

LYRICS:

You're like a sun drowned under the sea

You're like a song bird never set free

You're like a rainbow eyes never see

A shining explosion you're never to be

You're mind's a prison holding your soul

Quick free yourself before you get old

Try as you might you'll never believe

Reality's trying to deceive

High as the earth the earth is low

Fast as the world the world is slow

And hope before too long you still have hope

Got A Song

Bone Room

Written By: John Oh

No one cared as he walked down

The rain-swept streets in ragged clothes

Only with time's passing did they

Dare to change their tune

Locked away a room of bone
C#m
Concealed the sage in depthless solace
G
Everybody stared but no-one
F
Dared to look inside
G C#m with embellishment on b-7 (C#sus4)
Dared to look inside
G C#m
Dared to look inside
G C#m

CHORUS 1
We've got a lifetime
C#m C#sus4/C#m
To say we're sorry
Dm7 D 6-9
We can be your friend
Dmaj9 Dm7 C#m
We've got a lifetime
C#m C#sus4/C#m
To say we're sorry
Dm7 D 6-9
We can be your friend
Dmaj9 Dm7 C#m Dmaj9 Dm7 C#m

The sun was just a memory and

the fields of green lived in his head

Childhood and trauma only

Spoiled his sense of touch


His room was bare his mind was clear

He lay down to forget his name

And set out to purify everything he saw inside

Thing he saw inside

Thing he saw inside

CHORUS 2 (Extended) Dmaj9 Dm7 C#m


He saw the formula just once

And knew he'd glimpsed eternity

Nothing meant a notion

When the meaning was inside

Meaning was the inside

Meaning was inside



He left the world at 10am

Words were rare and thoughts were rarer

Ignorance never found genius

Even when it died

Even when it died

Even when it died

INSTRUMENTAL C#m Dm7 D 6-9 Dmaj9 D 6-9 Dm7 C#m

CHORUS 3

Simple joy he knew just once

A summer day so long ago

Laughs and smiles drew out the...

Tears he never cried

Tears he never cried

Hope that never died
