There's a place in the distance
I thought I'd like to tame
and when I saw my reflection
and I spoke its name
it made me sweat
it makes me sweat

When you hear this confession
don't give it no pity
it”s just a song to add
to the tower of plenty
inside there’s a room
with a view of the alley
and when you close the curtains
you hear the heat pipes coughing in your head

let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you find yourself a spotlight
on the outside of cool

a punch in the face
is sometimes a blessing
highjacked by a moment
you should've been expecting
it makes you sweat
it made me sweat

how the voice of a shadow
has been misunderstood
without religion
the cross is just wood
so shed a little light
on what it means to good
like the soul of a prayer
that finds the heart of your neighbourhood

let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you're standing in the deadlight
and you're polishing your shoes
let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you find yourself a spotlight
on the outside of cool

let me show you…

Same here
I didn't want to like this song...

...but it's so good. And it just keeps getting better. Help, I can't stop listening to it!

Sort comments  by the oldest.

Not many songs I can think of that mention shoe shining in the lyrics.
Don't suppose that puts it in the genre of "shoegazing"?
Mark is from Canada, lives in Berlin. Their project started in 2018. 
Klingt doch ganz gut.

I agree. ...nice drums.

Un ligero parecido a Gomez

 I think slightly better of my DAC and amp...

Wow, there is a superb video to go with this tune (titled, for some reason Outside of Cool v.2).  I like the sly lyrics. Thanks for tossing some new music at us, Bill and Rebecca....
Thats a groovy, psychedelic tune that sent me into deep thoughts
From their Facebook profile (via Wikipedia):

Kliffs write recycled tone poems for the perpetually bemused, and pop songs for shy dancers

Being a shy dancer, I can appreciate this.

Good tune, and this band is new to me. I assumed it was a bit older. Will have to check out some more music from Kliffs.
Love the title and the imagery.  Thanks for finding it and playing it!
