breathing in the dark
lying on its side
the ruins of the day
painted with a scar
and the more I straighten out
the less it wants to try
the feelings start to rot
one wink at a time

oh
forgiving who you are
for what you stand to gain
just know that if you hide
it doesn’t go away
when you get out of bed
don’t end up stranded
horrified with each stone
on the stage
my little dark age

picking through the cards
knowing what’s nearby
the carvings on the face
say they find it hard
and the engine’s failed again
all limits of disguise
the humor’s not the same
coming from denial

oh
I grieve in stereo
the stereo sounds strange
I know that if you hide
it doesn’t go away
if you get out of bed
and find me standing all alone
open-eyed
burn the page
my little dark age

I grieve in stereo
the stereo sounds strange
you know that if it hides
it doesn’t go away
if I get out of bed
you’ll see me standing all alone
horrified
on the stage
my little dark age

giddy with delight
seeing what’s to come
the image of the dead
dead ends in my mind

policemen swear to god
love’s seeping from the guns
I know my friends and I
would probably turn and run
if you get out of bed
come find us heading for the bridge
bring a stone
all the rage
my little dark age

I grieve in stereo
the stereo sounds strange
I know that if you hide
it doesn’t go away
if you get out of bed
and find me standing all alone
open-eyed
burn the page
my little dark age

I need to listen to that more often. Alt Nation plays their more well-known songs. And I agree with bitbanger (who commented below) that this sounds very 80s.

Damn, even the video has an 80s vibe!


Sounds very 80s for something released in 2018. Heard it before and wasn’t that interesting back then either. Going with a 3 and a big yawn!
I like it! ...I never heard of them before. ....Thanx RP!

ETA: I listen to Alt Nation on SiriusXM a lot, and they have NEVER played this. Haha, maybe Jim Ladd will play it on his show on Deep Tracks someday. (He probably won't, but he does play Porcupine Tree a lot!)

Nice. Love it when we get a nice run of boppy danceable tunage. MUCH needed in these unsettling times.
Should be followed by New Dark Age,  by The Sound.

Exactly.
Good stuff.
A perfect 80s synth tune with modern production values.

I could go for a whole set of that sort of thing right now.
Is there any melodious music in this sound experiment? 
I really like the sound :-)

Not as hipster as I thought
This is strange, isn't it? Reminiscent of 1980s' dark, obscure music. Was suprised to see the release date. Thanks Bill, don't think I'd have come across them without RP.
Gary - is that you?
