Steve Lawson Having been a Clatter fan for over a decade, I was delighted at the news of their return, and so much moreso to hear this their greatest album so far. Truly brilliant songwriting, playing and production. Amy is a genuine bass hero. ❤️

about

This album is the story of the dissolution of a relationship from one person's perspective. The songs are meant to be heard in the given order because they transition from one to the next, both musically and lyrically.

Track Name: The More I Think
The more I think
About it now
The more I feel betrayed somehow
I see you smile
Across the room
The wrong direction

A crowded space
A willing face
Another glass or two of wine
A private toast
You move in close
A secret whisper

The working late
The dinner dates
Another weekend left alone
And when we talk you say the words but you're not speaking

It’s just a phase it’s just a fad
I’m sure there’s nothing going on
I stayed up waiting for you
But who came home

Suspicion
Premonition

Your head turned on the pillow
You’re searching for a smile
Deep sigh in the twilight
Then silence

Your clothes trapped in the corner
A pocket of lies
Absent is the band of truth
And that’s when hope dies

Staring at the darkness
A breach by my side
I yearn to reach out to you
You’re too far away

The more I think
About it now
The more I feel betrayed somehow
I see you smile
Across the room
The wrong direction

A crowded space
A willing face
Another glass or two of wine
A private toast
You move in close
A secret whisper

The working late
The dinner dates
Another weekend left alone
And when we talk you say the words but you're not speaking

The sand is shifting at my feet
I see the point but not the line
A thousand daggers
In my chest
But I’m not bleeding

Betrayal
Denial
Track Name: Space of One
Every time you go away
This sadness it weighs upon my heart
You leave me all alone
Sit in silence by the telephone
The only company for me
Is the refrigerator drone
And I'm left all alone
In our empty home
In our empty home
In our empty home

You're only happy when you're on the run
Leave me alone in this space of one
I feel more empty
Whenever you're around
I feel your heart beat
But don't hear the sound

It's more than I can bear
To live with someone who will not share
You leave me all alone
In this space of one
In this space of one
In this space of one
Track Name: Dive
My decay is getting clearer
From the rejection in the mirror
Confidence is wearing down
Something’s different, something’s changed

(Drifting sailboats on the horizon)

Contemplating my rendition
Of this untenable position
No distraction in the distance
Conviction shaken to the core

(Seagulls murmuring in the distance)

Rooms are hollowed out by silence
Echos of a yearning past


Alone in the wreckage
Forlorn in the wreckage


Stained by the past
Tender tattoos of regret
Indelibly scarred by memories
Time eroding permanence

(Sparkling sunlight on the water)

Quiet gliding on the surface
Drawing closer to the precipice
Nails scattered all around
Shattered river of glass

(Trees are moaning in the breeze)

Losing sight of the harbor
As I founder in the abyss


(Dive, dive)
In a corner
Of the psyche
Lives a demon
Hungry, scheming

Undermining
It is feeding
On the restlessness

In a corner
Of the psyche
Lives a demon
Cunning, stinging

Compromising
It devours
All my emptiness
Track Name: Faith in You
In a field of sunflowers on a warm summer day
You took my hand and I gave you my heart
You promised your fidelity
And we'd never be apart

Love I thought was true
Fading to gray
I see my faith in you
Slipping away

You’re always out late
And up before dawn
I find your cold coffee cup
After you're gone

Canopy of starlight
On that weekend away
Close by the fire
I felt the distance of your desire

Dusted off the photos
Of our wedding day
I see your eyes were miles away
It gently crushes me
To see pictures of my happiest day

Eyes I thought were blue
Fading to gray
I see my faith in you
Slipping away
Track Name: Reeling
One night you lose your temper
You say you’ve met someone
And in a frozen heartbeat
Our life has come undone

You look relieved and righteous
In shock I’m paralyzed
You walk away unburdened
Unfettered by your lies

The ground is opening beneath my feet
There are no hands to grab me
Spark ignites as I fall to my knees
Watch the world as it’s burning down

I thought you took it all
And then you took some more
Close friends are pleasant strangers
I see them keeping score

You think that I’m to blame and
You’re not the only one
The isolation thickens
Betrayed by everyone

(But I still love you, please don’t leave me)

The ground is opening beneath my feet
(I’m reeling)
I’ve got no friends to guide me
Sift the cinders
And look for some wings
So that I can be born again

Everyone wants to give advice
But no one wants to listen
Everyone thinks they know what’s right
And no one wants to hear your point of view

Shadows of family portraits
Blank spaces on the walls
I lost a mother, father
Looks like I lost it all
Track Name: Come Back
When I came back
Things would be different
When I came back
I'd be there for you
When I came back
All would be forgiven
But when I came back
You were already gone


It's a long way home
‘Cause I can't see to drive
And you wave goodbye
With the planes in the sky


When I came back
You’d know I loved you
When I came back
You’d understand
When I came back
We’d find a better place
But when I came back
You had already gone
Track Name: Seven Shades of Hell
Open my eyes to the daybreak
Body is numb and too heavy to move
Paralyzed by the heartache
And the panic of days bereft of everyone

Mired in disgrace
Condemnation on everyone’s face
Heat in my skin
Isolated by scandalous grins
Gasping for breath
Suffocated by echoes of love

Perpetual freefall, never landing
No one to catch me, only pulling me down
In the war for peace you’re the last one standing
And I’m falling through seven shades of hell

Shallow exchange
The expressions say everything’s changed
Glance of contempt
Contemplating my rightful descent
Can’t catch my breath
Suffocated by shrouds of hate
Track Name: Arrhythmia
Why you
Depraved and righteous
You think you’re a god
That’s what the signs said
You’ve got a halo around your head
Why you
Inamorato
The strain of secrecy etched on your face

Flicker of a doubt
Shadow of coal
Treachery unleashed
When you lost control

Why me
Why the torment
There's a sorcerer at the drawing board
It’s a trap and I can't go back
Why me
Debased, forsaken
Doomed to spiral toward the dark abyss

You pulled away
I took the blame
Humiliation
Paralyzing shame

I cry
From the pain that's in my heart
(Because I know)
And the pain that's yet to come
(Before I go)
From pain I'll come undone

Angel in the shadows
Or demon in the light

Pull back for sound
Listen to your heartbeat

Why you
Why the treachery
I hate you for wanting something new
A better lover, a different view
Why me
Why the anguish
All my dreams are steeped in misery

Cards stacked against me
Always in your debt
You have an alibi
And your own diplomat
Track Name: Ember
Such a pleasant
Sunny afternoon
The flowers not yet bloomed
I caught a pleasant scent (hint of scent)
That wasn't my perfume

And I felt you
Crawl beneath my skin
I should not have let you in
(You) slithered into my heart
And you shed your skin

Then I saw you
Slip between the scenes
Busy with your schemes
Deft with sleight of hand
Appealing to my dreams

And the best landscapes
Are with you not in the scene
My favorite places
Are where you've never been

Now I hear you
Mendacious from the start
An actor playing a part
(With) nectar in your words
And winter in your heart

Now it's over
Bitter in my throat
All the memories make me choke
Caustic love was the spark
With acrid smoke

Your last season
Will find you on your own
So desperate and alone
Surrounded deep and dark
In bleakness you have sown

And the best landscapes
Are with you not in the scene
My favorite places
Are where you've never been

And now my favorite perfume
Is gasoline
I drench the landscape
Erase you from the scene
