Default Lateralus' songs.

Okay so this thread is where I'm going to write and develop my own and my band's song lyrics and poetry. I might even post some of them in video form!

To start off, this is one of the first songs we wrote and it's called 'Amy.' It is about a girl we used to know. We've matured lots as songwriters since but this song is still very special to us.


Her hair was made of embers
There was a flame in her eye to match
She picked up boys in Melbourne bars
But still she was detached

Her car was lined with tiny bits
Of paper, scribbly prose
She said she kept her soul on loose-leaf
and made all of her own clothes

Amy come drive with me
We'll elope from all this mess
Roll up your sleeves don't be ashamed
Put on your prettiest dress

On the outside we saw her smile,
Lip gloss, cherry red
On the inside we didn't know
The hurt, the pain, the dread

Amy come drive with me
It doesn't matter where we go
Roll up your sleeves don't be ashamed
Noone ever has to know

Amy, come drive with me
Amy, roll up your sleeves
Amy, come drive with me
Amy, roll up your sleeves

Amy come drive with me
we'll elope from all this mess
Roll up your sleeves don't be ashamed
put on your prettiest dress

Amy....

Great line. Suicide is such a sad thing to deal with for everyone affected. A fitting tribute.

Are you a fan of Missy Higgins? You share a depth in thought and an ease in your content. I think it's great that you can share this.

Thanks. That's my favourite line out of the song also.

I'm not a diehard fan of Missy Higgins but I am familiar with her stuff. Anyway, thanks

Here is a video version. I've shortened it and adapted it to an acoustic version, normally it's a band thing. enjoy. or not.

Wow, it's really weird to hear someone's voice that you've only talked to online, but yours is really beautiful. I agree with the Missy higgins comparison as well.

It's barely noticeable and by no means weird.

I really liked this song Kate, the reverb you added to the voice was a very nice touch. I think I'm going to subscribe to your page

Thanks! Yeah I added a small percentage of reverb using good old garage band. Thanks for subscribing!

EDIT: I've also uploaded a new video of it where my head isn't chopped off.

Thanks for listening
