Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

SPH: I was playing with the guitar and bass lines that became the chorus of this tune when I read Christopher's lyrics. Somehow it matched.
The other voice parts were kind of written on sunday morning after cycling. This evening I tried to put all parts together, what you hear is a first mix. Maybe I'll add more instruments later.

Instruments: Tele copy, Fretless bass, voice, fingersnipping and clapping by me, Drumsounds from StudioOne.

Lyrics: 

Above the chaos

Come with me let's escape the noise
We deserve a place we can enjoy
Below us it's descended into bitter tongues
Before the end let's try for better while we're young

Step away from the danger of the insane
Forget the bitter anger and increasing pain

I want to take you above the chaos
We can find a place and stay lost
A cool solitude above the chaos
We can hide away til the nonsense stops

Time to go and retreat to peace
We need some space without the speech
Behind us it's just crumbling into la la land
Without the fuss let's choose that somewhere while we can

Step away from the danger of the insane
Forget the bitter anger and increasing pain

I want to take you above the chaos
We can find a place and stay lost
A cool solitude above the chaos
We can hide away til the nonsense stops

Don't try and make sense of the madness
Go while it's safe when all's left is sadness
Hold my hand, we can rise above the fights
Boldness can, surprise what's there in your mind

Step away from the danger of the insane
Forget the bitter anger and increasing pain

I want to take you above the chaos
We can find a place and stay lost
A cool solitude above the chaos
We can hide away til the nonsense stops

My gain is everyone's loss
Let's stay hidden above the chaos

i live the unique groove and inventive instrumentation that suggests a chaos down below that the lyics promise to rise above. the different voices also suggest a sense of multiple worlds and ways of dealing with the chaos created by the insanity of others.

Amazing marriage of music and lyric. You really did well here. Spooky STING-like song. Well produced too!

This is really groove and the performance is top notch, nice song about just wanting a refuge. Very nice
