And here they come to lead you down the darkest road, yeah Yes, we quest into the soulless soul And perfect pitch is pitching you a new moon, yeah Rebel yell to karoake tune Push their buttons and they sing a little song Scared and weak they speak like you're the one who's not strong Yeah, they'll watch your back get stabbed While serenely smiling on And my love, my love, my love And my love just don't belong And radio it moans inside it's teenage skin, yeah Mouth the made-up words through lifeless grins Out on the pasture pastors posturing so proud, yeah How did nothing ever get so loud? Push their buttons and they sing a little song Scared and weak they speak like you're the one who's not strong Yeah, they'll watch your back get stabbed While serenely smiling on And my love, my love, my love And my love just don't belong And those who know will know I tried to play along, yeah Till I found out my love don't belong

I shouldn't have to say it but there's not time to tell And I'm so sick of waiting I'll set the sun myself Every shadow frozen, every clock stopped You run it down to the bottom then take it from the top And I will make you love me, dear This year Oh, did you know when the hands touch at midnight that's when we'll be alright That's when we'll start again Gonna go get better, gonna dry me out Bring the future closer, get away from now And I will make you love me, dear This year Oh, did you know? When the hands touch at midnight that's when we'll be alright That's when we'll start again Oh, did you know? In a slow confetti burst on January first That's when we'll start again

My son he believes he’s gonna be a king I’m not even sure he knows what that means He don’t understand where that path can lead He don’t understand anything Said I, it's not like a bird - you can cage in your fist Said I, it's all king or chaos - and kings don't exist That's it. My son fell in love with complete control Tied his own shoes at two months old And when he guess, he guess incorrectly And when he sing it comes out of tune and twee Come over here Croon with me Said I, it's not like a book - where you clearly read the twist Said I, it's all king or chaos - and kings don't exist. That’s it. Ooh, 1993 Took his bike for a ride up a tree Came down on cold, hard concrete Said I, it isn’t like time is really wrapped round your wrist Said I, it's all king or chaos - and kings don't exist That’s it.

Stepping outside we fall into history This place is a factory, it makes everything heavy Scream at the silence, lay down with violence This place is a factory, we all live inside it So step out and breath it, open up and feel it Time will not heal it, but I've got a secret You are so natural You are not wrong This is your world You'll always belong

Your Cocoon 03:41
You've never missed a step You haven't taken one yet Cinched to an inch it's time you knew You're still stuck in your cocoon Feels it was always meant to be You fill it up so perfectly But know you'll never grow up anytime soon While you're stuck in your cocoon You're armoured but it's welded shut So green that it's obscene You think your wings are these splendid things But baby they've never been seen Never been seen Oh, you're the first to laugh And, oh, we love you for that But it's time to cut the cord and spit out that spoon Let's get you out of your cocoon

Finally I made it out My clothes all black with smoke Finally I made it out What a joke Amazingly I'm still alive Carrying the people I love Amazingly i'm still alive I should have died But there is still one spark within me Invisible addict addicting Only feels the hurt, the burns, the shame And wants to swing at the flames Back into the fire Back into the fire I go The only place that i know

about

"The balance between the accessible and the experimental that these songs strike often recalls the work of Wilco (especially opening track My Love Don’t Belong). Still, Taronno hasn’t completely abandoned his pure pop urges: the appropriately anthemic January First comes out with confetti cannons a-blazing." - Uptown Magazine

"The songs are exciting, beautifully fleshed out and guaranteed to stick in your subconscious for days." - The Uniter
