lyrics

AT PLAY IN THE NIGHT TIDE
R: Vocals, guitar, synths
Nick: Guitar, vocals
Shelley: Bass, vocals
Mother: Drums

Don’t you trust a single word
There are no friends in this world
Full of swindlers and knaves
And players of confidence games
Your black hair spread out on the sand
As sunlight comes to its end
The waves lap at your feet
Soon devoured by the sea

Adrift in the surf
Cast off with a kiss and a curse
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide
Chapter and verse
Echo and fall to the Earth
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide
Shivering sound
Sharp breath and a rippling crown
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide

You answered the call
Of vanity’s flaw

At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide
Adrift in the surf
Cast off with a kiss and a curse
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide

You answered the call
Of vanity’s flaw
The vain glory of love’s long fraud
You answered the call

There are no friends in this trade
This black horizon a reflective grave
Vermin disguised by the shade
Litter the shore to watch you sink in the waves

Chapter and verse
Echo and fall to the Earth
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide
Adrift in the surf
Cast off with a kiss and a curse
At play in the night tide
At play in the night tide

about

FOTOCRIME

Forging a connection between the shadows of the underbelly of the mid-century American Dream, the ghostly corners of post-war Europe, and the present moment, FOTOCRIME breathes new life into Cold War paranoia, modern-day malaise and smoky noir.
