about

Temple Scene are back with their first full-length album, ‘A Good Day To Disappear’, 11 new songs that draw on themes as wide as border escape and alien abduction to enfold the listener in a world that is both poignant and intensely personal.

‘A Good Day To Disappear’ draws on the duo’s years of studio work with the likes of U2, The Verve and Bassment Jaxx, distilling their experiences into their unique style of dark, atmospheric pop, deftly mixing infectious melodies with swirling electronica and guitars.

Track Name: By The Wayside
I’m still waiting, waiting here
I’m still waiting
Every day, every night
In all of the places I found you

In a corner of the Lost And Found you can hide
But every day I can hear and see all the places you’ve been to

When I am at the edge, you are by the wayside
Now I’m on the brink of jumping in

Only you can bring me every kind of story
I’m holding on to you now
‘Cause you do, you move me

You talk to me and understand how I feel
And all I can hope is some day I can give something back to you
So many times I thought that you’d walked away
That you’d had enough, sick of all the frustration

But if I was at the edge, you’d be by the wayside
If I was all alone, you’d be with me

Only you can bring me every kind of story
I’m holding on to you now
‘Cause you do, you move me

I don’t want to feel like anyone else
I just want to feel like there’s more to this life than sitting on the highway
And I don’t want to feel like anyone else
I just want to feel like I did
I just want to feel like I did

You will always bring me every kind of story
And I’m holding on to you now
‘Cause you do, you move me
Track Name: Learn To Begin
Deep breath in, another slow breath out
Time makes her stand and I lay myself down
And all at once her leaves will start to fall
The beauty swept aside as her arms reach for me

You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being
And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming
Let it in, let it all pour down on you
And dance under the rain

And time hangs heavy for this restless soul
As she digs her feet into the dried up ground
And as she brings what I lie waiting for
The wind finds voice with the words she’s found

You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being
And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming
Let it in, let it all pour down on you
And dance under the rain

When did I fall down?
Or did I never climb?
Don’t you know?
And I feel like I’m hanging on a line
But I’ll take you at your word

You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being
And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming
Let it in, let it all pour down on you
And dance under the rain
Track Name: One Of These Days
One of these days we’re gonna find our way home
One of these days we’re gonna climb over that wall
Over or under
And we’ll be the lucky ones

One of these days we’re going to run out of this place
And they won’t see it coming
One of these days we’ll leave together in the boot of a car
Just you remember
And we’ll be the lucky ones

And we’re waiting for the day
For a good day to disappear

‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones
We don’t feel the same
We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us
And lose what we could have

One of these days we’ll see the colours
We’ll hear new sounds and we’ll know everything
One of these days we’ll be free from the shadows
Free from a lens and free to do anything
And we’ll be the lucky ones
We’ll be the lucky ones

And we’re waiting for the day
For a good day to disappear

‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones
We don’t feel the same
We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us
And lose what we could have

When you reach out, I will be with you
Waiting where you are
With hearts racing, who could stop us
Who could hold us back that day

‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones
We don’t feel the same
We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us
And lose what we could have

Safe to say, we won’t be the only ones
We won’t be the only ones
Track Name: What's Done Is Done
What’s done is done, what’s through is through
And I helped dig the hole I fell into

I can feel the weight resting on my shoulders
I don’t see a turning tide
This is where it starts, the battle for the soldier
This is where the future lies

We are only flashes of the people that we used to be
Forever living in history

What’s done is done, what’s through is through
And I can see where this is headed to

‘Cause I can see a light burning in the distance
I can see a waving flag
Been walking on my own, this road of least resistance
Dwelling on the things I had

We are only flashes of the people that we used to be
Forever living in history

It’s always been a fine line between hope and opportunity
I’ve been living by the wrong time
Can I find the day? Can I make it down?
Staring at the scan lines, wasting what I never had
Sifting through the pieces
Can I find the day? Can I start again? Can I bring love?

Broken people taking chances
When will we learn how to let go?
Broken People
Track Name: Singing Out
I remember how you used to say
You could bring the life back into my days
Just by singing everywhere, in every place
It’s easy to bring light back into a face

So you would be singing out no matter where you were
It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost

There are times when I find myself
Wishing to the world I was where you were
But there’s no point in waiting for a better hand
I don’t have your voice but I know the words

So I will be singing out no matter where you are
It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost

And if these streams of words run dry
If I should slip or wander
I will not still my voice

So I will be singing out no matter where you are
It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost
I will be singing out
Track Name: Helsinki
I’ll chase a light from anywhere to any place
Waiting for all traces of the memory to fade away
I Should never have given up a single part
Of who I was or who I am

I want to be where you are
I want to be where you are
Helsinki

I’ll take my time
Take back my words and promises and start again
And I will look upon this day as my release
As my escape, as my one and only way to show
Who I was and who I am

I want to be where you are
I want to be where you are
Helsinki

We’re at a distance I can’t work out how to bridge
And we’ve gone too far to ever get it back again
Who cares about the others?
Who cares what the others do?

I want to be where you are
I want to be where you are
Helsinki
I want to be everywhere
I want to feel everything
I want to be everywhere
Track Name: A Sign Of Things To Come
In my hands, a thousand words that never found their way out loud
And in this house he was giving it up but he didn’t know how

And if this is a sign of things to come
If this is a sign

It’s one line and one direction and nothing can ever change that
He’s struggling to keep up, already been forgotten
And his only way was to lose himself completely

And this was a sign of things to come
This was a sign of things to come
This was a sign

You can’t hold the night out
But take your stand against the storm
And you will find your way out of here
And when it feels like the rain is seeping in
And when it feels like the walls are no match for the wind
You don’t have to run when you know where you have to go

In my hands, a thousand words that never found their way out loud
And in this house he was giving it up but he didn’t know how
Track Name: The Mountain
There’s a silence on the mountain
That is deeper than a memory
It’s a silence that I’m hoping
Will be louder than the dreams I’ve had
But it’s too late, I’m already home

I keep coming back here again
And it’s just as real now as it ever was then
I keep coming back here again
But I can never change the way the story ends

There’s a stillness with eyes open
That I can’t find with them closed
It’s a secret I don’t want to know

I keep coming back here again
And it’s just as real now as it ever was then
I keep coming back here again
But I can never change the way the story ends

Time is not the answer
It can’t heal all things
Bathe a little longer
In the foothills of the dream

I keep coming back here again
And it’s just as real now as it ever was then
I keep coming back here again
But I can never change the way the story ends
Track Name: Creeping Lights
So you never quite found out
What it would have felt like
Or what it was to be
Standing under a raincloud
Or sitting with the lights out
Waiting for someone

Now you’re in my head
You’re in my head now
Like a creeping light
That gets everywhere we are

Underneath the raincloud
Is where you’ll find me
Standing still

Rushed out
Stones flying everywhere
Light fills up the sky
How long until this night is out?

You gave me enough to know that I need it

Now you’re in my head
You’re in my head now
Like the creeping lights
Everywhere we are
Track Name: May Avenue
Well it feels like the hours and the days
Turned into months and years
And the reason has faded away

And time’s still running and I’m still waiting
For lights from heaven to take me with them
‘Cause I don’t want to be alone anymore
When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you

A good living or even living well is not it’s own reward
Without something to be living for

And time’s still running and I’m still waiting
For lights from heaven to take me with them
‘Cause I don’t want to be alone anymore
When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you

Soul searching leaves you nowhere
But there’s someone to be found
In all the worlds that must be out there
And I will wait till you appear
I’m making circles to guide you here
I’ll be on May Avenue looking up

And time’s still running and I’m still waiting
For lights from heaven to take me with them
‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone anymore
When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you
I will be waiting for you
Track Name: Fall Back
I can hear the sounds coming through
Small things get louder in a quiet room
I’m waiting for the world, to see it changing soon
But it just keeps slipping away

I can feel the words affecting you
Almost makes sense of what I thought I knew
It’s the things we feel that become the truth
But it just keeps slipping away

And I don’t want to lose all of the little things
I don’t want to turn to someone new
With an eye on the world
I keep a distance and fall back
I fall back from view

They say that life can be so cruel
We’re all just people but people are fools
There’s always something to get us through
But we just keep slipping away

And I don’t want to lose all of the little things
I don’t want to turn to someone new
With an eye on the world
I keep a distance and fall back
I fall back

And I will fall like a stone till I find my place
Until I find the day
Falling back is all that I can do

And I don’t want to lose all of the little things
I don’t want to turn to someone new
With an eye on the world
I keep a distance and fall back
I fall back from view
