SMALL MOVEMENTS

( INTO ANOTHER FANTASY )

WHO MIGHT LIKE THIS SONG?

Fans of Roland Orzabal, The Cars, Porno For Pyros, Kula Shaker.

ABOUT THE SONG:

It started out with a keyboard pad synth sound I really liked working with.  In my head, I heard a cymbal-heavy drum kit beat for the verse, almost intentionally to sound like mostly room microphones were present.  The music lends itself to a sort of ethereal / dreamy feel, overall, with the chorus completely clashing with the verse as far as how the two are related to one another.  They are ushered in and out by synths and guitars that, in my mind, musically act as a conduit guide into another fantasy (See?  See how I worked that in?  Lovely.)

The lyrics metaphorically touch on elements of how we live life, how we look at various things in this world and our overall perception of reality and the hand we are dealt, or maybe, the hand we create for ourselves.

"Look up to the sky... Watch the stars go by... Do you feel at home up there, or do you wonder why?"

Read between the lines

Dotting all the I’s

Making all the right connects

Stacking up the lies

 

Doin’ what you’re told

Never felt so cold

Harvest moon into crescent

Never felt so old

 

This show goes on and on.

This show goes on and on.

 

Processing your worth

Death and life from birth

Leave a little extra salt

to spread upon this earth

 

The who, what, when and why

You’re such a lucky guy

Never hear a word I say

Never say goodbye

 

This show goes on and on.

This ship rocks on and on.

This show goes on and on…. Until

 

You step into the doorway

Into another story

Into another Fantasy

Small things…

Yet each of us a treasure

Impossible to measure

And Nothing really disappears….

 

Once upon a time

you cared for piece of mind

But now you look the other way

Yeah,  now you fall in line

 

Living in a cold basement

Doing what you’re told and when

Use a little intellect

To Show ‘em you’re divine.

 

This show goes on and on.

This show goes on and on.

 

Restless in your work

Bleed until it hurts

It’s hard to measure worth when you’re only

weighing pounds of dirt.

 

Look up to the sky

Watch the stars go by

Do you feel at home up there?

Or do you wonder why?

 

This show goes on and on.

This show goes on and on.

This ship rocks on and on.

This show goes on and on…. Until

 

You step into the doorway

Into another story

Into another Fantasy

Small things…

Yet each of us a treasure

Impossible to measure

Nothing ever disappears

 

Small words…

Only communication

Only reverberation

In the music of the spheres…

Small hands…

In time can move a mountain

No need to stand your ground when

You hear that universal calling
