about

For me, making "Dissolve" was about capturing a feeling. This certain feeling that is so impossible to pin down that I almost don't want to describe it in too much detail because I know I'll get it wrong. It's a blend of tragic, romantic, beautiful, all with a healthy dose of casual cruelty. "Doomed odyssey, all in the name of unrequited love" stuff. That's not quite it though; there I go, not getting it right. Told you I wouldn't.

Love, as a volatile and dangerous substance, and a terrible thing to put into the wrong hands. Handing someone the keys to your heart, and having them take it out for a dangerous joyride because it doesn't mean a damn thing to them.

Nope, still not quite getting it right.

lyrics

no flask can keep it
bubble up and cut right through
but you're someone I believe in
you heat me like a filament
anytime you're in the room
but you burned me and i'm smoking

i just wanted you to watch me dissolve
slowly
in a pool full of your love
but i don't even know how the chemistry works
when you're poolside
kicking in the dirt
kicking in the sand
and stirring up trouble

can't find an exit
i wander in a maze alone
if i find you will you shock me?
left left and right right
pretty sure that i've been here before
and it isn't what i wanted

i just wanted you to watch me dissolve
slowly
in a pool full of your love
but i don't even know how the chemistry works
when you're poolside
kicking in the dirt
kicking in the sand
and stirring up trouble

your voice like an angel
been chain smoking all month long
like you're someone i believe in
you held me but i'm volatile
and never got my head screwed on
now i'm melting through the floor
am i only a lab rat?
someone you can test things on?
are you training for a new love?
all in white, like you're an angel
with the sun glimmering off your glass mask
this isn't what i signed up for

i just wanted you to watch me dissolve
slowly
in a pool full of your love
but i don't even know how the chemistry works
when you're poolside
kicking in the dirt
kicking in the sand
and stirring up trouble
