Silverchair in Straight Lines

Silverchair’s first music video from the album, Young Modern, was released on February 2, 2007, a month before the single was released, and nearly two months before the release of the album itself. Singer/guitarist Daniel Johns, drummer Ben Gillies and bassist Chris Joannou thrash out their new song on a makeshift stage in the middle of Olympic Park Train Station in Sydney. Partying with Silverchair were 40 fans, the first to reply to an invite to appear in the video posted on the Silverchair web site.

Lyrics for Straight Lines

Breathing from a hole in my lung
I had no one
With faces in front of me
Racing through the void in my head
To find traces
Of a good luck academy

Ooh Ooh Ooh

Sparks ignite and trade them for thought
About no one
And nothing in particular
Washed the sickened socket and drove
Resent nothing
There’s good will inside of me

Ooh Ooh Ooh

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Wake me up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line

Something I will never forget
I felt desperate
And stuck to the marrow
Invisible to everyone else
I’m a sex-change
And a damsel with no heroine

Ooh Ooh Ooh

Wake me up lower the fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Wake me up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line

I don’t need no time to say
There’s no changing yesterday
If we keep talking and
I keep walking in straight lines
