The Science of Letting Go

I've been drawing your lines
Making surfaces align
Solving your equations
Drafting your elevations
A place I could hide
I put my body inside
Dissolved in the concrete mixture
Living inside your structure

I've been planning you for years
But the buildings I've made have disappeared

Let go, let go
Didn't you know
There's a science to letting go
So let go, let go

It's all over now
They tore your walls to the ground
Too many things need changing
Too much needs rearranging
There are other buildings to grow
I'll get another shot, I know
I'll seek out every commission
Submit to every competition

This is your call to make
I have nothing left that you can take

So let go, let go
Didn't you know
There's a science to letting go
Oh let go, let go

All the plans I drew I've placed inside balloons
I've tied them to a tree an one by one I set them free
One day there will be someone to draw me
I'll be the building to make
A building worth spending a life on

The Montreal quartet manage to carry their complex arrangements to the stage with verve and intensity, delivering a 90s inflected indie rock breathing through epicly layered electronics. ... more
