Thoughtless 03:48
It's quite easy to be thoughtless The act of thought takes the act of time and effort combined This can be troubling to certain members of the population Lay down, blank stare Only the sound of breathing Empty logic, all the bars I'm seeing Pointless, thoughtless Never gonna see it my way Hands up, give up Still behind in the new day Lay down, blank stare Only the sound of breathing Empty logic, all the bars I'm seeing Pointless, thoughtless Never gonna see it my way Hands up, give up Still behind in the new day It's quite easy to be thoughtless The act of thought takes the act of time and effort combined This can be troubling to certain members of the population They're never gonna change their thoughts It's only gonna be a matter of hate It's only gonna be a matter of time It's a matter if the people change They're never gonna change their thoughts It's only gonna be a matter of hate It's only gonna be a matter of time It's a matter if the people change In conclusion, trying to change their minds will just be wasted effort on your part Go live your life to the best of your ability Lay down, blank stare Only the sound of breathing Empty logic, all the bars I'm seeing Pointless, thoughtless Never gonna see it my way Hands up, give up Still behind in the new day Lay down, blank stare Only the sound of breathing Empty logic, all the bars I'm seeing Pointless, thoughtless Never gonna see it my way Hands up, give up Still behind in the new day They're never gonna change their thoughts It's only gonna be a matter of hate It's only gonna be a matter of time It's a matter if the people change They're never gonna change their thoughts It's only gonna be a matter of hate It's only gonna be a matter of time It's a matter if the people change

See the people running, running, running And, wearing down, down, down The situation is stunning, stunning, stunning To be around, round, round All the music is flowing, flowing flowing To feel the sound, sound, sound They don’t care about the light They don’t care about what’s right They don’t care about the light They don’t care about what’s right When the crowd is shining, shining, shining The thoughts are bound, bound bound When ideas are rolling, rolling, rolling They darken clouds, clouds, clouds Important learners are scrolling, scrolling, scrolling To keep them wound, wound, wound They don’t care about the light They don’t care about what’s right They don’t care about the light They don’t care about what’s right

about

Wayne Leechford and Paul Gallant have been musical collaborators since the early 1990s. Their previous bands together have included My Kat Randi, Scientific Superstar and Battlestar Canada. In 2016, they formed Kattalax to explore beat making mixed with song writing. This eponymous, debut album is a product of exchanging song ideas remotely and then elaborating on the ideas over time.
