D.A.F. - Powderfinger

Holding out for a signal to come
Solution found should appease everyone
Religion hides from developing proof
Believers try to encourage the truth

Cascading down golden rays above
Cascading down life from far beyond
May reveal the silence they deny

Sound and sight end suspicion and fear
Distant light took so long to appear
Fey black eyes mystified everyone

Cascading down golden rays above
Cascading down life from far beyond
May reveal the silence they deny

But they keep filling up, keep filling up my eyes
But they keep filling up, keep filling up my eyes

Cascading down…

The early 90’s. Good times.
(Ian’s face!)

Copycat Chords? David Bowie and Powderfinger

greeniegreenie:

Do the opening chords in these two songs sound the same to you?

Yes! But Fanning is a massive Bowie fan; they’ve covered Ziggy Stardust and Sorrow (:

Powderfinger - Up & Down & Back Again (live)

Come and rescue me from in the water deep;
Careful now don’t lose your aim
The road ahead is clear again
I haven’t found it yet

You drift away so slow
Iin the ebb and flow;
So I landed on my feet
The steadiness is bittersweet
It feels the same
When you’re pushed
Out and away
And into the crush

In all the hidden pleasures you find
What you’re looking for
I hope that you remember that pride
Comes before a fall

And I can barely see
And up and down and back again
Despite what you believe
I keep away from trouble
If who I am today’s
A sign of where I’m going
I’m ready to embrace

You recreate the scene
Of everywhere you’ve been
You overcome the dreaded curse
A symptom the universe

It feels the same
When you’re pushed
Out of the way
And into the crush

In all the hidden pleasures you find
What you’re looking for
I hope that you remember that pride
Comes before a fall

And I can barely see
And up and down and back again
Despite what you believe
I keep away from trouble
If who I am today’s
A sign of where I’m going
I’m ready to embrace

If everybody knows just who you are
When your walk on role becomes a major part
Have you ever attempted to be yourself?
When everybody wants you to be someone else

If you wanna see the things you’ve trapped set free
You’d better let go of what lets them be
Have you ever attempted to be yourself?
When everybody wants you to be someone else
Up and down and back again

Going up and down and back again

You spend far too much time on this stuff, Bea! :P

I should not have been drinking when I saw this.

Powderfinger interview from 2002.

FYI

'Fingernut' (noun.) definition: A dedicated fan of Australian rock group ‘Powderfinger’. Coined by Chris Chester of the band ‘Jet’ during last year’s Sunset Tour, referring to fans who’d been to so many Powderfinger concerts that year, that even Jet (who were a support act for most of the tour) began to recognise them.
