about

Within reflects and highlights a sense of conflict many have between wanting to show an attractive outward image but risking objectification because of it - the observed vs the observer. Overt objectifying on the many 'visuals-friendly' platforms has become rife and has even gained a level of social acceptance. Within is a reminder that 'books are more than just covers'.

lyrics

Chaotic destiny or some great design
You see my body's just a box that holds my soul and mind
I see you paint by numbers
I watch you take your time
I see you search for the right words to commit your perfect crime

You look at me from the outside not the in
Is that all we are – some bones and a sheet of skin?
A smile for the camera hides the tears and demons within
3-2-1, ready or not, ‘cos we’re all as guilty as sin

Well, you’ve got it covered
Everything’s in place
Not even a fingerprint
See, you left no trace
When the heart-drive’s corrupted
No power to reboot
Agony's the compromise
Looking for a substitute

You look at me from the outside not the in
Is that all we are – some bones and a sheet of skin?
A smile for the camera hides the tears and demons within
3-2-1, ready or not, ‘cos we’re all as guilty as sin

Smile for the camera, click
Smile for the camera, click click click
Smile for the camera, click
Smile for the camera, click click click

...and strike a pose

You look at me from the outside not the in
Is that all we are – some bones and a sheet of skin?
A smile for the camera hides the tears and demons within
3-2-1, ready or not, ‘cos we’re all as guilty as sin

You look at me from the outside not the in
Is that all we are – some bones and a sheet of skin?
The curves of the heart were hidden well within
Curves on the outside are all you're interested in
