'My Lens' Song Description

Why do we have friends? What do we see in them and what do they see in us?

We seek understanding, people who are often at the same stage in life and with a similar comprehension. As life challenges us it also breaks us a little as we go encouraging us to feel anxious or puzzled. We often go to our friends for reassurance that we are not alone with our struggles. ‘My Lens’ is a metaphor for how we relate to each other through understanding each others struggles. ‘My Lens’ says we start off unbroken but it is inevitable that we will break and in the end it will be our breaks that will set us free and our breaks that we will use to understand each other in life.

My Lens lyrics

Lyrics written & performed for Fringe Mellow

Verse 01

As I look out of my lens
and see eye to eye with my friends
I can see truth as if its clear
through bits here and bits there
the light bends through fractures
highlighting different patches
I can see what reflection of me is captured
as we break down what each other can see
we’re both broken in a way that’s unique
I need to speak less to see more clear
condensation from to much of my breath
is conversation that’s too wet.

Chorus
Looking out of my lens, seeing eye to eye with my friends. Looking out of my lens.

Verse 02
I asked where is the pain in a pane of glass
sitting up back of class, with glassy eyes
reminiscent of that last night
when I saw the sun rise, I was laughing as the party died
looking out through the lens I was granted
I loved the picture when it was slanted
I could see it all, that wasn’t my advantage
I’d never been dropped and had to glue back a piece
the first time I felt rather clever, life was still easy to see
we become more weak learning to manage
through inevitable damage, that’s what sets us free.

Chorus
Looking out of my lens, seeing eye to eye with my friends. Looking out of my lens.

Verse 03
how do I look, what a stupid question
we focus on that and miss the lesson
throw me a rock and ill break it down
whats made up of particles to many to count
and together create clarity, clear to look out
add water and it magnifies a form of liquid that never dries
everybody shatters differently from the impact of life.

Chorus
Looking out of my lens, seeing eye to eye with my friends. Looking out of my lens.
