Presque Vu 02:37
In my indistinct neighborhood In the years before school Every day from nine to five It was good to be alive back then, good to be alive back then Good to be alive Whoa oh, in the kindergarten yard What a curious place to start But the memory can’t be tamed I recall just the taste of your name Do you remember how they made us dance Just a case of the circumstances I know we’re both grown up now Twenty years went go so fast Many days and miles away But I feel the same today Climbing up the walls to find you Tip of my tongue, tip of my tongue, Presque Vu Tip of my tongue, tip of my tongue, that’s you In the kindergarten yard What a curious place to start But the memory can’t be tamed I recall just the taste of your name Do you remember how they made us dance Just a case of the circumstances

Guillotine 04:03
In the cold streets of the city It’s a new world, it’s a new day In the jet planes on the cruise ships It’s a new sky, it’s a new day In the wheat fields, on the dirt roads It’s a new world, it’s a new day In the suitcase, in the closed trunk It’s a new war, it’s a new day If the battle hymn Is nothing but a melody To be harmonized With the funeral keen If it’s killing you Every time it’s killing me Why don’t we stop This guillotine In the crosswalks in the storm drains It’s a new life, it’s a new day On the rooftops where I held you It’s a new year, it’s a new day When your fellow man Is nothing but an enemy To be torn apart By the way you feel If it’s killing you Every way it’s killing me What are we gonna do About this guillotine Why don't we stop If the battle hymn Is nothing but a melody To be harmonized With the funeral keen If it’s killing you Every time it’s killing me Why don’t we stop This guillotine?

A dark star over the horizon I’ve got a lot on my mind The king wants a new storyteller To keep him busy in the sleepless night In walks a rare thing of beauty Her hips sway in the light of the moon Her neck under Damocles’ sword, but there’s Still magic in the room Old dreams escape me I got no sleep on my mind Tell me a story, tell me a story Stay here tonight You’re such a sweet sight For these old, weary eyes Tell me a story, tell me a story Save me tonight Her tale starts but I can’t hear nothing Her voice flows like honey through sand I don’t care bout genies and thieves She’s gotta live but they won’t understand They call me cruel, the blood red sultan They say I slayed half my family for fun I got a name, a name to live up to I gotta save her ‘fore the night is done Old dreams escape me I got no sleep on my mind Tell me a story, tell me a story Stay here tonight You’re such a sweet sight For these old, weary eyes Tell me a story, tell me a story Save me tonight Cold silence in the room she Waits for what verdict may come I say “your tale is far from over I’ll see you every night until the story’s done” Tell me, tell me a story

about

The sophomore EP from QUALIA; now Seattle-based, the musical outfit remains faithful to its founding elements - anthemic melodies, un-obvious lyricism, creative arrangements and an unabashed love of all things digital, retro and pixelated.
