about

A B O U T T H E L Y R I C S :

‘Gyre’ focuses on ocean-pollution; particularly inspired by the Great Pacific Garbage Patch Gyre – a vortex of trash floating halfway between Hawaii and California, characterised by high relative concentrations of plastic, chemical sludge and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre.

The lyrics include a number of allusions to mythical sea-creatures - sitting starkly next to the honest reflections of the main subject, whose pessimistic exclamations in the main hook, are as much cry of self-reflection, as a call of warning to others.

lyrics

Verse 1:

Floating all of the time,
Out of sight, out of mind.

This was so novel for a while,
But here’s the stinger,
Thrown to the gyre for life.

Chorus 1:

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

Verse 2:

Every colour, every shape, every hue,
Floating here amongst the ghosts of use.

Amongst the murky order, of the open water,
I am growing stronger, and I am becoming king.

And while I’m no kraken, I should raise your Sirens,
You’ll heartell of my tale but still refuse to believe.

Pre-Chorus:

(We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage.)

Chorus 2:

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

Final Chorus:

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

[Floating all of the time]
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.

[Floating all of the time]
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage,
We’ll never know the damage we’ve done.
