Cinema
Cinema purchase album

CINEMA is the bands first studio release since 2007.

The album is due for release June 25 in Australia, June 29 in Canada, July 6 in the USA, and about a month later in Europe and everywhere else.

Produced by Steve Schram, and recorded at Sing Sing Studios in the bands home town of Melbourne, this is an album which shows The Cat Empire at their very best, right now.

In an age when so much of selling music seems to be about celebrity and fashion, The Cat Empire have risen to be one of Australia and indeed the worlds favourite live acts through sheer musicality and the power of their interaction on stage.

2010 sees the international release and world tour of Cinema, the band's fourth studio album. The album serves up a set which captures the inexorable force - and sheer joy - of their live performances, delivered in a format perfect for lounge-rooms, backyards, BBQ's, cafes, road trips and parties all over the world. This is music which defies definition, but has a sound all of its own.

The only thing we can tell you it is that it is incredibly infectious, undeniably uplifting and definitely danceable,

Feelings Gone
O Lyrics

I used to ride up on the hill
And look down at the darkened
Silhouettes of tall black windowsills
And my heart jumped every ledge
Until one bright morning when I woke
I heard bells, girl she gently spoke and said
?Choice my man?s to breath or choke
So go die, or learn to hope?

Get back on your way at the end of the day
Under the fire and the rain
The whole big bloody parade until that
That feeling, feeling?s gone
You wake up on your own

Sometimes walls come caving in
Sometimes the world just hits your chin
And sometimes shadows haunt your back
And sometimes I feel so flat
Then like some rare eagle on the wind
Well it turns and life comes bursting in
And the earth you thought would beat you down
Lifts up and lights your ground

Get back on your way at the end of the day
Under the fire and the rain
The whole big bloody parade until that
That feeling, feeling?s gone
You wake up on your own

/ Lifts up and sends you homeward bound
/ Lifts up and then you?re found again
/ Lifts up and turns your world around

/still scarred of love lived on the ledge
And the Earth you thought would eat you up
Well it lifts you high and fills your cup
/carries
And right then I learnt to hope / the point of hope / I knew the way ahead/ to go

/ lifts up and clears your hallowed ground

*So scared that love lived on the edge /
Scared of love lived on the ledge / Like love lived on the ledge

/ As if my love required a ledge

Bring you down
Lifts up, your heart just leaves the ground
/and how you love your ground / high above the ground

/ and the earth you thought would end your song  ?song?
/ lifts up and now . . . the feeling?s gone feelings gone

And you wonder how on Earth you
When you?re high

Waiting
O Lyrics

This is the last time I will follow you

This is the last time I will follow you at all

Cos woman you?re my trouble

And woman I?ve been trouble and despair

My only care

Is standing here waiting when you?re out there

The wind comes down and all our youth is in loose pages

The wind appeared like you and left the place I?d known

Now words have lost their meaning

The words have lost their meaning and she?s bored

And I am bored

I?m standing here waiting and you don?t call

I?m standing here waiting and you don?t call

I?m standing here waiting but you don?t call

I?m standing here waiting

You took my time I still love you the same

But I fell down every time that you

Came, Came, Came

Every time that you came

The leaves fall gently and like autumn she brings sadness

The leaves are left behind and winter?s in my bones

But I won?t stand here crying

I won?t stand here crying anymore

I?m off the floor

I?m standing here waiting for you that?s all

I?m standing here waiting and you don?t call

I?m standing here waiting but you don?t call

I?m standing here waiting

You took my time I still love you the same

But I fell down every time that you

Came, Came, Came

Every time that you came

Falling
O Lyrics

From the city to the world below

From the strangers to the ones I know

From the darkness to the holy glow

We burn so bright

Can we outlast the show?

From the island to the world of dreams

From the future to the times I?ve seen

From the righteous to the make believe

We all must leave

But I just want to breathe

Falling

My world?s up and I?m almost

Falling

My hands over my shoulders

Falling

I?ll dan, dance til I?m old and

Falling

Deep down, onward and

From the pilot to the golden sky

From the dash until the day we die

From the laughter to the lonely cry

We all deny

Lie and multiply

Falling

My world?s up and I?m almost

Falling

My hands over my shoulders

Falling

I?ll dan, dance til I?m old and

Falling

Deep down, onward and

Well I love you like a raging storm

And I miss you like I?m coming home

And I hold you like a fading song

You send me high, high, higher . . . until I?m

Falling? X2

Only Light
O Lyrics
All along the street they're holding signs that say
That I am lost and that I do not know the way
I asked the rock, sitting in a shade of grey
I asked the rock, he didn't have a thing to say

So you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

When I was a stone no-one knew that I was there
I'd sing my song but no-one ever really cared
I went to the mountain face all covered in tears
I wept but the mountain didn't seem to hear

I'll love you until the mountain starts to cry
I'll love you if I don't know the reason why
I'll love you until I do not know my name
I ask you wouldn't you have done the same?

All Hell
O Lyrics

All hell?s crashing down inside

The windows to the other side

Shimmering in rooms to quiet sighs of

?Oh well if it?s happening there

It isn?t here?, and god appears to deal

A different hand to different tiers

But this play is not over yet

Hear the music of those marionettes

Beating drums down the quiet streets

Of ignorance and vain regrets

And all these fears swiftly come to pass

Presently she feels we?re past

Cups of tea and optimistic prayers

Cos out there?s our unholy mess

Gathering its long white dress

And marching down aisle to marry this

Matrimonial future bliss

Kiss the tide and hope it doesn?t lift up your

Carpet woven from apathy and token frets

All Hell!

But this play is not over yet

Hear the music of those marionettes

Beating drums down the quiet streets

Of ignorance and vain regrets

Beyond All
O Lyrics

Meet me

Underneath the neon light

We'll go

Wandering into the night

There's something

Underneath the beat of control

Something

A music that is beyond all

You go to sleep you wake up you do it again And there's a beat you make up inside of your head And every street's a river be born or be dead We are all singing this song but Nobody knows how it's going to end

Kiss me

In the coolness of the night

Take me

Further from the firelight

This jungle

No-one really knows where to go

Searching

For something that is beyond all

Music

A music that is beyond all

Break me

Up until I'm pieces of sand

Blow me up

And scatter me across the land

Our bodies

They're hairy and they're fat and they're old

I'm searching

For something that is beyond all

Music

A music that is beyond all

On My Way
O Lyrics

Don?t send me down the hole

Don?t send me down the hole

Don?t send me down the hole

Which way will it go go?

You never never know

You never never know

You never know the right way

Till you?ve been wrong, no

And if you want to shine

As your February clears

Would your March just disappear?

You hear it on the left

You hear it on the left

You hear it on the left left

Left then the right right

You?re missing in the west

You?re missing in the west

You?re missing in the west

You followed the black kite

And even in your dreams

There are lights that can?t be seen

And you?re lost in where you?ve been

Well I?m on my way

To where I won?t look back

I heard you say

With dismay

That we?re living on the tracks

I hear the train

Oh oh oh oh oh oh . . .

You?re living in a lie

You?re living in a lie

You?re living in a lie

Why do you deny-i

We?re swimming in the sky

We?re swimming in the sky

We?re swimming in the sky

So low and so high high

And if you want to shine

As the sea looks to the stars

Well you?re here, but very far!

And I'm on my way
To where I won?t look back

I heard you say

With dismay

That we?re living on the tracks

I hear the train

Oh oh oh oh oh oh . . .

As your February clears

Would your March just disappear?

Well I?m on my way

To where I won?t look back

I heard you say

With dismay

That we?re living on the tracks

I hear the train

On my way

To where I won?t look back

I heard you say

With distain

That we?re living on the tracks

I hear the train

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
