TUNE DARK TIDES - Outside Myself
The lyrics depict the inner monologue of a person staring into the mirror at the end of a long night, realising they have come to the end of a certain chapter in their life and struggling to find a clear path beyond this.
The song is about not being able to recognise the person you have become, feeling trapped in a place that you can’t return from.
The speaking voice that can be heard before the outro of the song is a quote from the late astronomer Carl Sagan. Our producer Nick Miles played us the audio clip of the quote whilst we were in his studio, it really resonated with the themes of lostness and alienation so we incorporated it into the track.
