about

Diana says this song was "Spawned in Jarradale, WA 2012, at ‘Rhythm Song’ where I was leading Brazilian choral workshops and participated in Eva Popov’s songwriting workshops. (I included the word ‘pops’ in the song in salute to her name). The bass line and feel came to me while walking among the ancient trees after a brainstorming session with Eva. I worked hard on getting the fiery lyric right. It’s a song that captures anger and uses it for transformation."

lyrics

I’ll face you fluorescent in uptight genes
Familiar, irreverent my dodgy little themes

I’ll face you fluorescent, one simple wish
My features incandescent, I’ll pass the test

Creaking crimes of a driven artist
Refusing to give away
Not today

I’ll face you fluorescent in close up slow-mo frames
While smashing prescribed methods
And no-one else to blame

Creaking crimes of a driven artist
Refusing to give away
Not today

Pops of laughter crashing cages
Touch screen pokes of jest
Cough into daylight
Stowaway strangers
Alternate route regrets

I’ll face you
No regrets
No regrets
