about

Pink Noise Generator Adelaide, Australia

Pink Noise Generator sound like an exceedingly polite Joy Division. Instead of songs borne of sublime melancholy and a petulant urge to rebel, the Adelaide band are pensively heartbroken yet eager to please.

Track Name: Don't Pretend
Don't Pretend

we're always dreaming
until someone breaks down
lost until its found
but its not in my eyes
not in your arms

see my point of view
I have to remain true
and its not in your eyes
its not in my arms

I never wanted to see you cry
I just needed my own business
I never wanted to break your heart
and I’m sorry for all this mess

all my apologies for all the awkwardness
one day you'll see me you won't have to pretend
as your so much better off without me

we all do
smash each other’s dreams
cry out at the seams
why pretend we don't feel
why pretend we’re all old
and someone wakes another
and on and on it goes...
why pretend we don't feel
why pretend we’re all old

I’m sorry...

because I’m a dreamer and I don't exist
you want somebody who is a realist
that’s why your so much better off
without me
Track Name: Mistakes
mistakes
everybody's made mistakes
mine was walking to your door
to tell you its over

Is it really over?
Is it really over?

mistakes
everybody's made mistakes
I wear mine now
and I'm not proud of it

It was years and years and years ago years
and years and years ago
but you don't want to hear about mistakes...
Track Name: Throwing a Heart To The Kerb
I know what I have to do to get my heart out of you
I know exactly what to say I’ve been stewing it for days
but when I find you I just stare I need to tell you something
I can’t bare

’m laying off my baby
I’m throwing a heart to the kerb
I’m laying off my baby
I’m letting go of all I used to know
and grabbing on to something unknown, unknown, unknown...

putting on my brightest shoes to dance out the blues
thinking of you in the back of my mind
and I don’t know what you should do
so what do you see when you see me?
I’m wondering if you can see how I feel
Track Name: Six Kilometres To Your Hous
six kilometres to your house
with all your things all packed up in my car
turning down silent dirt roads
all leading to the same heartbreak

you said so many things to me
you said so many things to me
but they were all lies...

am I getting better?
I don't think I am getting better
as every time I go out I’m reminded of her name
and I know I have to believe in myself
I know I have to believe in my friends
I know its hard to accept
but its harder, way harder to ignore

thoughts of you play out in mind like a movie
sometimes you are good, sometimes you are bad, sometimes I get so sick thinking about you
how I wanted you to play your part differently
if I could only be the director of my past

you said so many things to me
you said so many things to me
but they were all lies!

but its so easy just to believe you...
but its so easy to just let you lead me
but its so easy just to believe you...
but its so easy to just let you lead me
just say you need me

(now I’m at your door)

* knock knock knock *

you promised so many things to me
you promised... they were all lies!
