about

'Change' talks about other people wanting to change you for their own ends, rather than helping you to change for your own good.

A while back, a well known BBC DJ & musician asked that we change every aspect of our band just to make us more palatable for him!

The sheer hypocrisy and blissful unawareness just fit perfectly with the overall story arc of 'Unfolding', our forthcoming 3rd album, from which the track 'Change' comes.

lyrics

Amplified time
Reading between the lines
Of what I thought you said
Can’t seem to explain
As over again
It echoes inside my head

Maybe I should know by now
That there’s a big difference
Between what I heard
And what you really meant

Do you feel the need
To pass judgement on me
Do you think that you are being a help?
You say that you’re blunt
But all you want
Is to make me into somebody else

So you want to crucify me
On a rumour you overheard
You level your charge
Then accuse me of something worse

Maybe I’ll never amount to much
When I’m seen through your eyes
But you know that you’re not my reason why
Can’t accept me unless I conform
To how you think I should be
Are you trying to help me change
Or just trying to change me?

Can’t catch a break
In the choices we make
We always seems to be knocked back
We’ve taken a punch
But we have to get up
We show our strength in how we react

It feels like shouting into a void
Whilst trying not to drown
Sometimes I’m overwhelmed
And I let it get me down

All of our hopes and all our dreams
Have disappeared into a haze
We’ve seen this thing through
Now all we can do
Is go our separate ways

I guess we’re looking for different things
No need for a sharp retort
No confusion now
We’re no longer tangled and caught
