lyrics

All the nights you stood by the side of the stage
All the tricks you tried to learn from the start
All the promise of your early years
You lost somewhere in a bottomless beer

All the hopes you had misplaced
Hungover in the afternoon sun
The rats have fled the sinking ship
Holding onto youth and losing grip

The lost chords, the drunken speeches
Tangled like seaweed washed up on beaches
No one is ever as free as they want to be

All the clocks stop at your office desk
Stuck in a rut it's oh-so Kafka-esque
Nothing changes, no one complains
Wearing your best funeral dress

Try to sleep but you can't ignore
The blast of techno from the house next door
If you'd been born decades before
Things would be the same but you'd like the tunes more

The lost chords, the drunken speeches
Tangled like seaweed washed up on beaches
No one is ever as free as they want to be
Sharp businessmen, hellfire preachers
Everywhere you look there's poisonous leeches
No one is ever as free as they want to be

The new single, 'Temperament' is a taste of the future direction of AMCS. ... more
