Day In Day Out
An imbalance of work/life can result in sleep being the only time left to experience freedom, the crushing routine of daily grind can insidiously replace real life. Written on 25th March 1988 (the current ‘austerity’ climate makes this strangely pertinent today) but was not demoed until December 1990 it wasn’t properly recorded until 2010 when it appeared on the first album. There are two different videos including the live acoustic version filmed at Manchester fringe in 2014. The guitar on this recording is acoustic (a 1950’s Antoria with f-holes and an original Antoria 50’s pickup fitted) while the rest of the set up being our normal electric rig. This was rerecorded during the Everything Changes sessions, at SSR and Bryn Elwy

The bonus tracks:
Evolution and change is an important aspect of The Speed Of Sound, from the beginning the plan was for the bonus disc to reflect the way a selection of the songs from the back catalogue on the current live-list were currently being played


Day In Day Out

Morning claws above the rooftops
Overcast and stale it rears
Through curtains twilight comes again
The tired grey dawn peers in
Silent figures languish while their freedom ticks away
As bottles chink outside another day begins

Untried dreams will die unperceived
As life is slowly marking time
Austere severe and cold
Echoing with the reprise
Of yet another day spent suffocating
In its routine

Count the minutes
Watch the clock
Clock in, clock out
Day in day out, day in day out, day in day out,
Day in day out, day in day out,

And so another weekend
Brings its warm tender embrace
Sink into its famiiarity
Relax in its grasp
Comforting release from the turmoil for a while
But too soon its coming round again

Day in day out, day in day out, day in
