about

Fronz Arp Brisbane, Australia

The strange machine which is Fronz Arp grinds like a tattered, angry little hurdy gurdy. With dramatic jaunt and seesawing melodies that have been compared to weird-pop wonders, such as David Bowie and Tom Waits

“...songs full of drama and action, designed to get pulses racing and yet still sounding both intricate and adventurous” Rave Magazine

Track Name: Earthlings
Earthlings, and I'm floating in outer space
An astronaut, the moon is not so far away
I'm an alien, a stranger even to myself

Do you really think we all die alone?
Can you tell me what that means?

Because I already feel so alone
Where did my friends go
And if I could not sing a note
I'd have nothing at all

I can't do it on my own
I can't do it on my own

Can we really put our trust into science fiction?
Can you tell me what that means?

Because I already feel so alone
Where did my friends go
And if I could not sing a note
I'd have nothing at all

Because I don't know

I already feel so alone
Where did my friends go
And if I could not sing a note
I'd have nothing at all
I'm just an alien surround by
Earthlings
Track Name: Get Lost
Hey I don't want
A 2nd hand life
So take, take what you will
Anything you like

Could you save me from this boredom
Save me from this town
There's a world on fire
And I'm just breaking down
Into parts and pieces
I should be waking up
But I won't get lost again

Hey I don't want
A 2nd hand life
So take, take what you wiill
As if it even matters

When we moved to New York
With no where left to run
More lived in my building
Then the place where I grew up
Talking in circles
And working everynight
But I won't get lost again
I swear I won't get lost again
I swear I won't get lost again

I took so long to get here
I took so long to get here
My whole life
Could you save me from this boredom
Save me from this town
Could you save me from this boredom
Save me from this town

Hey I don't want
A 2nd hand life
A 2nd hand life
Track Name: Erasure
Oh can you feel the marks on my skin
The ancient history
Just so you know where did it go
Like smoke and mirrors
Where nothing's as it seems
Oh can you see the outline and scars
A faint impression
The place that we lay, whisper and breathe
Softly, slowly
Where nothing's as it seems
Where nothing's as it seems

Can we stay up all night and pretend we've never done that before
Can we stay up all night just like we've never done that before

I can never really ever quite get past
The strangest feelings
The smaller the scars healing marks
Just smoke and mirrors
Where nothing's as it seems

Can we stay up all night and pretend we've never done that before
Can we stay up all night just like we've never done that before
Can we touch for the first time just like we've never done that before
Can we stay up all night just we've never done that before
Track Name: Foreign Bodies
I saw a thing I can't believe
Where foreign bodies fill the seas
I saw it all on my TV
And couldn't help but think if it were me
I'd hold you're hand and not let go
Whisper in your ear that I love you so
As the waves crashed down across the boat
As it dragged us down to the deapths below

Are you just like me?

Tell me what could I have done
Somehow it is never enough
But I don't mind at all

If the only way to keep you safe
Was to put our trust within the waves
Well maybe toegether we could get away
But where we go I cannot say

Tell me what could I have done
Somehow it is never enough
But I don't mind at all

Foreign bodies fill the sea
Foreign bodies fill the sea
Track Name: Do We Come From Two Worlds
Do we come from two worlds
Because I can never sees you eye to eye
In the heat of the moment
And I don't know why
We seem condemned to fight for half our lives
And bleed an ocean

I guess that we did all we could've done
If only I knew what I'd become to everyone
As if I didn't know

I don't show my emotions
But its such a strange notion
To leave it all behind
Despite my intentions
My crazy inventions
Don't go anywhere

Do we come from two worlds
Just like aliens so far apart
From venus and mars
And I just don't know why
But I'll be damned if I will just fly down
Crash into the ground

I guess that we did all we could've done
If only I knew what I'd become to everyone
As if I didn't know

Can you tell me whats up ahead
When there's nothing more for us to say
We're covered head to toe in bleach
And there's nothing more for us to say

I know I don't show my emotions
But its such a strange notion
To leave it all behind
Despite my intentions
My crazy inventions
Don't go anywhere
I know I don't show my emotions
But its such a strange notion
To leave it all behind
Despite my intentions
My crazy inventions
Don't go anywhere
