about

I Can't See is an anti-love song, about trying to resist that falling feeling.

This track has a vintage pop-rock sound, inspired by London legends The Clash, the playful lo-fi NYC pop of Darwin Deez and a touch of The Supremes' 60s girl-group sweetness.

lyrics

I Can’t See

Found peace
between the sheets
we shared
a brief release
a love affair
like all the rest
it seemed to me
I like you best but

I can’t see
see further
than the body that I lie beneath
see
see over
these four walls it’s getting hard to breathe

Persimmon skin deceives
you try to wait
resist
your hungry eyes
impatient
tear the flesh apart
and then the bitter
breaks your

Heart
keep beating
ain’t you heard it’s better to have loved
it’s art
you’re feeding
so go on and share a little blood

I was always chewing my bit
’til you took it out
Feels so good being rid of it
all of the metal in my mouth

Now I am free
I see

Found peace
between the sheets
we shared
a brief release
a love affair

impatient
tear the flesh apart
and then the bitter
breaks your

Heart
keep beating
ain’t you heard it’s better to have loved
it’s art
you’re feeding
so go on and share a little blood
