album: all distortions are intentional


“Sonderland”

Far away
As far as the eye can see
Is a place that I don’t understand
A place we know as Sonderland
I call it home, call it hell
I’m sure if it could it would call me names as well
Like a “walking detriment”
On the world’s worst carousel

These strange times that we live in
Will slowly eat you alive if you don’t fit in

Welcome to my dark despair
Everyone here is a nightmare
As they all keep talking in their sleep
I am wondering, if it surely gets better than this?

Why do good things come to all those terrible people?
And would God be the next big thing
If you heard her on the radio?
Where did all the good ones go?
They finish last or they die young
Then it’s onto the next post
The story of a generation
So dead set on novelty
But some honesty now and then would be quite nice

Welcome to my dark despair
Everyone here is a nightmare
As they all keep talking in their sleep
I am wondering, if it surely gets better than this?

No I don’t wanna sit and talk about politics
Or social sciences in contradiction
Not when I’m staring down the edge, off the precipice
With grim ambition

These strange times that we live in
Will slowly eat you alive if you don’t fit in

Welcome to my dark despair
Everyone here is a nightmare
As they all keep talking in their sleep
I am wondering, if it surely gets better than this?

Surely gets better than this
It surely gets better than this
If it surely gets better than this


Sonderland, this song is named after, is the name of a fantastical setting where one of the album’s central characters, Jet, lives. The band posted a picture on Instagram with an explanation that Sonderland is “a profound world, where which you realize that everyone, including strangers passing in the street, have a life as complex as your own, where they are constantly living despite your personal lack of awareness of them”.

Bassist Seb Barlow told Pulp magazine, “Sonderland is essentially Jet’s personal world, in which he felt like he is a stranger looking out of a window, watching everyone else’s lives pass him by, whilst realising they are the stars of their own movie and everyone else is just an extra.”
