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

Track Name: My Love Don't Belong
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
Track Name: January First
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
Track Name: King or Chaos
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.
Track Name: This Place is a Factory
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
Track Name: Your Cocoon
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
Track Name: Back Into the Fire
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
