The Price
Dappled Cities Lyrics


If eyes were bone
And toes were gold
We'd have somebody new
But ears stick out
And eyes remain
'cos everyone's the same

They're beautiful
In one and all

The heroes of the world we've left
Have never been the same
They long to us
And to our quest
And see themselves remain

They're beautiful
In one and all

And something should be holding us back
Something should be weighing us down
Somehow we're the casters of kin and bone
By now, we could be standing our ground

They'll take your eyes away
They'll take take take your eyes away
(All as one)
The price we pay to look the other way

When I'm right here beside you

The eyes are bone
The toes of gold
The shape of something new
But here, we're near
The eyes of age
And everyone's the same

They're beautiful
In one and all

And something should be holding us back
Something should be weighing us down
Somehow we're the casters of kin and bone
By now, we could be standing our ground

They'll take your eyes away
They'll take take take your eyes away
(All as one)
The price we pay to look the other way

When I'm right here beside you

Something should be holding us back
Something should be holding us back
Something should be holding us back
Something should be holding us back

I saw you guys at live at The Zoo in 2008 in Brisbane Australia. I asked my wife out to this song that night. Listening to this in 2018 married to the woman of my dreams - thank you!

Eddie Gregg

Hells yeah! Another great song by another great band signed to my favorite indie label!

My friend saw them at the Metro she loves them. Then I saw this live video of this song and couldn't hear it but it sounded like this with bad audio. But even though I shouldn't really be listening to what isn't mine, I just needed to hear it. This song is just like sunshine though! "The price we pay to look the other way, but I'm right here beside you!" That line is just pure golden sunshine, I actually feel happy now =)
