about

'Deep Breath' was inspired by RnB and Rap songs that I didn't identify with, songs about sex and seduction. As a songwriter this perplexed me, why didn't I feel the inclination to write something similar? In 20 years I had a go at pretty much every topic there is, but this eluded me. After quiet reflection and a renewed imagination since kicking the booze, I happened upon this chord sequence late one evening, it felt dark and a little sinister, perfect. From my own record collection I'd say there is a taste of Puscifer about this track, Maynard James Keenan and the wonderful Carina Round duel some very sexy vocal lines throughout their material, I'd check them out.

lyrics

The house is quiet in the afternoon
No one should see us if we both move faster
I believe you know your way around
Deep breath on skin says yes to me.
I knew the moment that you spoke too soon
Your eyes dilate and tell the truth

You’ve a reason to be dressed so well
You know I see it but I won’t come easy
I let the jackals and the wolves go play
It’s all fun, faint, wink, then turn away.
There’s not a Caesar sat in every room
You know this too and follow through

There’s a reason why you just can’t stop,
Connect the dots,
And it only ends one way.
There’s a reason why you can’t walk by
Your mouth is dry
And your mind’s on yesterday
I've gotta the feeling that the night won’t end
Without seeing old friends.

There’s nothing better than a reunion
The muscle memory makes it all so simple
Don’t underestimate a fighters chance
We live, learn, grow taste experience
We may be broken by the fist of life
But all we have right now, we sacrifice.

I remember every inch of skin x2
Just close my eyes and I am right there with you
No need for fantasies or dreams tonight
Keep up girl, sins just right this time
And out of every single star that shines
The one we share is ever-bright.

There’s a reason why you just can’t stop,
Connect the dots,
And it only ends one way.
There’s a reason why you can’t walk by
Your mouth is dry
And your mind’s on yesterday
I've gotta the feeling that the night won’t end
Without seeing old friends.
