about

Comissioned and recorded for a compilation called Canopy: Songs For The Southern Forests, this was the result of a writing trip to Northcliffe. In it, the character sees smoke from firefighters burning off undergrowth and compares it to his own cluttered, anxious mental state.

lyrics

Smell steaming karri leaves
Lost by lonely trees
Forest never grieves

Feel no flames licking here
No pain could get near
Just glowing white air

White haze surrounding me
And it's affecting me
A tranquility

Someone's burning off the scrub
Someone's making sure it's safe
Someone's whiting out the fear
Someone's letting me breathe clear

Psychopath sedated
But functionally
Reassuringly

Float, smother the tension
Clear dangerous objects
My dangerous subjects

White haze surrounding me
And it's affecting me
A tranquility

Someone's burning off the scrub
Someone's making sure it's safe
Someone's whiting out the fear
Someone's letting me breathe clear
Someone's burning off the scrub
Someone's making sure it's safe
Someone's whiting out the fear
Someone's letting me breathe clear
Someone's burning off the scrub
Someone's making sure it's safe
Someone's whiting out the fear
Someone's letting me breathe clear

...So clear
