Lyrics & Full Tracklisting


1) Isolosphere: Prologue

Protagonist: “You’re not the person I thought you were”, She said, looking down. That was the justification she gave, at least. I pleaded with her, of course I did. “Don’t make this any harder than it has to be,” She replied.

Did the future plans, the goodnight kisses and the “I love you”s mean nothing? Was I just some little plaything for your amusement, To use and abuse and throw away When you had no more use for me?

I thought I saw a tear trickle down your face, But I only caught the briefest of glimpses. Was that a smile or a frown? Either way it doesn’t really matter. It’s no consolation for the emptiness inside of me.

But I wonder: do I really need you? Maybe I should just hide away. Do I need anyone at all? I’m sure there’ll be no more hurt or pain, If I just turn off and curl into a ball.

2) Hedgehog’s Dilemma

Protagonist: Please don’t give me your pity, ‘cause I’m doing just bloody fine She may have been pretty, but she sure as hell wasn’t divine, Please don’t touch me, it hurts too much, It seems love’s just a barbed crutch,

Spines Sticking,

Spines Pricking,

Spines Digging In, Find Myself Blind,

With My Head In A Spin

We all want to get close, but is it worth all of that pain? We’re injecting endorphins, but the needle is missing the vein, Please don’t touch me, it hurts too much, It still hurts with the gentlest touch,

Spines Sticking,

Spines Pricking,

Spines Digging In, Find Myself Blind,

With My Head In A Spin

If I can’t run away, I’ll just find somewhere I can hide, Curl into a ball, the heartache won’t reach me inside, Please don’t’ touch me, it hurts too much, I’m sorry, it’s not about you as such

Spines Sticking,

Spines Pricking,

Spines Digging In, Find Myself Blind,

With My Head In A Spin

3) Isolosphere

a) Welcome to the Isolosphere

Ringmaster: Welcome to the Isolosphere, My dear, When you’re here, You’ll have nothing to fear, Please believe,

Never leave, Never again will you spill a tear,

Voices: Welcome to the Isolosphere, We’re so sure you’ll enjoy it here, Please believe,

Never leave,

Please believe,

Protagonist: It’s so tempting here, Drawn within my mind, Where I can’t get hurt, Feelings inert, I might stay Ringmaster: You must stay!

Protagonist: I might stay Ringmaster: You must stay!

Protagonist: So safe in here, Like a warm womb, protecting my heart Voices: We’ll protect, we’ll protect…. You must stay!

Voices & Ringmaster: Please believe,

Never leave,

Please believe,

Never leave, Stay! Stay! Stay! Stay!

b) In Circles

Protagonist: No pain here, no heartache No anger, am I awake? I don’t care if life’s not lit, It’s safe here, I like it,

Though I’m still no stronger, I’ll stay here a bit longer,

No fear here, no danger, Though I feel a bit a bit stranger, Yes, I’m fine! Just slightly tense, This place is my defen-

Though I admit it doesn’t feel quite right, like a bottomless pit, It’s darker and deeper, It feels like my keeper, It isn’t what I wanted, Hear me cry!

I’m stuck here, can you hear me? Someone please set me free, This place is just a hurdle, It drives me in circles,

In circles,

In circles,

In circles,

In circ-

c) Get Me Out!

Protagonist: In this hopeless cage, I built up my rage, And I began to realise this place brings only my demise,

Voices: What do you hope to achieve? You’ll never leave, The fear of pain is too strong, just play along,

Protagonist: You can’t stop me now, this to you I vow, I will get out of this alive, I will fly and I will thrive!

Get Me Out!

Get Me Out! Voices: Stuck in this world of grey, Protagonist: Hear Me Shout!

I Will Get Out! Voices: You’ll never get away, Protagonist: Get Me Out!

Get Me Out! Voices: Beg, kneel, implore or pray, Protagonist: Hear Me Shout!

I Will Get Out! Voices: You’ll never get away,

Protagonist: Get Me Out!

Voices: Never!

Protagonist: Get Me Out!

Voices: Sever!

Protagonist: Get Me Out!

Voices: Never!

Protagonist: Get Me Out!

Voices: Ever!

Protagonist: Get Me Out!

4) Rejoice! (Break it Down)

Protagonist: It’s time to break it down, I need to be free, I’ve finally realised that this is not a place I want to be, ‘Cause I’ve only got one life to live and all of this love to give...

Break It Down,

Make The Choice,

Tear It Down,

Rejoice!

Give me my torch, my hammer and my fork, I need to burn it down, I’ve gotta brush myself off, get up and walk, Before I start, before I start to drown,

Break It Down,

Make The Choice,

Tear It Down,

Rejoice!

You know I’ve only got one single chance, To get my whole life right, I’ll banish those deep, dark, lonely thoughts, I’ll burn them down, illuminate this night,

Break It Down,

Make The Choice,

Tear It Down,

Rejoice!

The Isolosphere kept me locked up, For far too long, Though I may face pain and suffering, The hope of love will keep me strong

No longer have I anything to fear now I’ve torn down the Isolosphere, I’ve got no more need to run away, after all, I’ll live to see another day, ‘Cause we’ve only got one life to live and all of this love to give, So I’ll fly like my namesake, the dove, and remember to never fear love,

5) Isolosphere: Epilogue

Protagonist: And so I broke down the Isolosphere, and learnt to love again. It wasn’t a short or easy process at all, but it was all worthwhile, Yeah, there’s definitely still pain and fear and hurt, But ultimately, in the end, the pain informs the happiness,

The low mood, the depression, the anxiety? Those feelings occasionally come around every now and then, But I think I truly beat the Isolosphere I don’t think I have to worry about it again

But still, I sometimes hear those voices…

Voices: And on some distant day, you’ll find yourself astray, You’ll succumb to the fear, and return to the Isolosphere…
