about

The first song that was written when the band began. I (Philip) was getting tired of writing acoustic campfire music about lost love, so one day I plugged my Fender in to some Marshall stacks and wrote this one. Turned out I still had some rage against my parents, which gave a lot of background to the lyrics.

Anyway, this song is real stomach-punch to anyone who isn't dead.

lyrics

In a future close by, where the cars can fly
Will life lead to good
Or will the bad lead life?

Will I begin to feel self assured?
Regain the thoughts, find a cure

But mother says
I'm not that brave

With a slight of hand
I'll soon be king

Defying youth
For hipster beings

I'm awake
These dreams are real

If poetry bleeds
Will I finally see, that beauty lies beneath?

I feel like I'm about to implode
But let's hear another story of yours

So the doctor says
Take these pills

Well I felt a pain
Then heard a truth

About tearing down
And building up

The walls I climbed
Of Babylon

But mother says
I'm not that brave

With a slight of hand
I'll soon be king

Defying youth
For hipster beings

I'm awake
These dreams are real

about

Pointless Compass Malmö, Sweden

We are a Swedish band from the southern city of Malmö. Formed in June 2013, we have anchored ourselves on playing alternative-rock, with just a touch of indie.

Inspired by bands such as "The Smashing Pumpkins", "Radiohead", "RHCP", "Nirvana" and "Weezer" we have tried to form our own sound.
