shortened and slightly remixed single version of the full song "Here in the Hurricane" from the Anton Sword EP, "Here in the Hurricane".
Here in the Hurricane
Why do you come around tonight, to lose yourself in a dream?
Tonight what are we all doing here, and who’s sure what they mean?
Fake, you always say you feel fake, now how do you feel?
Tonight nobody’s sure who they are, or how to tell fake from real
You, you came here tonight for someone new
Or you came tonight to see friends or make them see you
Or you came tonight ‘cause you were tired of standing outside the play
Tonight, take a drink, dissolve your thoughts of the day
Quivering inside, step out into the night,
Pink in the streetlights, slide along the walls
Quivering inside, under, under the heights,
Back in the doorway, stumble down the hall
Spinning around now, lonely holding hands,
Hold onto lonely, hold on now
Into the dark now, round and round,
Fake it or be real, who knows how?
‘Cause tonight invisible shapes fly
Across the room onto your face
And they dance in all the secret spots,
To enchant the corners of this place
We would like to say something meaningful
That will always burn as you read
But we don’t need to say anything,
We just make vowel sounds as you move your feet
In the hypnolyric hurricane, in the hypnolyric hurricane
here in the hurricane, here in the hurricane
Fake, are you still feeling fake, or is unfinished what you mean?
Move, moving helps you arrive here, between the blob and the machine
Hi, hello there, why still resist?
I know it’s hard, but we were made for this
