about

Inventions Melbourne, Australia

Lacing everything they do with a touch of drama and emotion, Melbourne high-octane quintet Inventions present a fresh take on a sound deeply rooted in the Alt-rock scene of the early 2000s. New EP ‘Exist, Explore’ has been produced by one of Australia’s most established studio exponents of said scene, Forrester Savell (Dead Letter Circus, Karnivool). ... more

Track Name: Coming Home
There's a place that's far from my home
A little place that I can call my own
Somewhere I found a long the way
I've fought, i've failed, i've tried
All these years so strong by your side
But now you say I'm in the way

I keep coming home to you
Wishing my life away on you
Get in line, or get out of my way
I've had it up to here with you
And being down on my knees for you
I've been here plenty before
So come what god damn may

There's something in this house that holds me back
As I try to make my way outside
But it feels like losing when I win
I know you said you've tried
To be the one that stays here by my side
But you say it's me that's gotta break

Come what may
You'll be jealous forever
Come what may
It gets better and better
Come what may
Yeah let's say it together
Come what may

You're wasting, wasting my time
Track Name: Nowhere I'd Rather Be
So you're sorry for yourself
What a pity that you're just not good enough
Tell me again why you taste so bitter
What do you think you really deserve?

It's obvious -
Don't you make me laugh, your arrogance is wearing me out
Just ask yourself
"Am I really crazy, or am I simply just in denial?"

I'll stand here soaking up your sadness
(just scream at me)
There's nowhere I'd rather be
So give up your fury and your madness
(your misery)
You can take it out on me

What a shame you're getting old
You've hit 23, you're certainly of an age to agree
That it takes time
Are you truly scared or just in love with your apathy?

I'll stand here soaking up your sadness
(just scream at me)
There's nowhere I'd rather be
So give up your fury and your madness
(your misery)
You can take it out on me

Say, hey, misery
Say, hey, misery
Say, hey, misery

Still there's nowhere
Nowhere
There's nowhere I'd rather be

I'll stand here soaking up your sadness
(just scream at me)
There's nowhere I'd rather be
So give up your fury and your madness
(your misery)
You can take it out on me
Track Name: Worthless (ft. Vonnie Sofia)
You left me on my own
Where you went I'll never know
You cut me off and it's not fair

I tried to make it work
But after all these years

You make me feel Worthless
Like I'm just your average boy
But if you're worthless
You better show me you deserve it

I left you on your own
Crossed the ocean, sails and oar
I didn't think you'd ever care

But I cared enough to notice
You swore to me I was something better
Now you write me off like I'm not there

I tried to make it work
But after all these years

You make me feel Worthless
Like I'm just your average boy
But if you're worthless
You better show me what you're made of
Worthless
I'm not here for you to play with me
Tired, bleeding just to feel
Stand and show me, show me you deserve it

I've got this sinking feeling nothing's gonna change
(I've got this sinking feeling nothing gonna change)
So go on love, let your oceans crash their waves
(I'm going now, just let it wash away)
I've got this sinking feeling we'd end up the same
(I've got this sinking feeling we'd end up the same)
So like you've always done, just rain on my parade

Worthless
Like I'm just your average boy
But if you're worthless
You better show me what you're made of
Worthless
I'm not here for you to play with me
Tired, bleeding just to feel
Stand and show me, show me you deserve it
Track Name: Lay Your Bones Down
You've been hiding away, away where I can't find you
And bring you back to the pain you left when you ripped my body apart
You drowned cities, you destroyed lives
And made hell a wanted paradise
Now you look surprised to find me here
I just couldn't resist

I've been waiting on you, waiting for the right time
To lay your bones down and finally make it right
I've been searching for so long, fighting what's been wrong
But I can't raise the dead

Let me take you right back, back to the beginning
To the place where our science began
And I knew you better than you think
We made real progress, we discovered new skies
And time and space were paralysed
We fell so far away from there,
But I just couldn't forget

I've been waiting on you, waiting for the right time
To lay your bones down and finally make it right
I've been searching for so long, fighting what's been wrong
But I can't raise the dead

I wanna see you violent, yeah
I wanna see you raging
I wanna see you lose it
I wanna see you hate me

I gave you love
But you threw it right back in my face
Was I not enough?

I wanna see you violent, yeah
I wanna see you raging
(I've been waiting on you, waiting for the right time)
I wanna see you lose it
I wanna see you hate me
(To lay your bones down and finally make it right)

I gave you love
But you threw it right back in my face
Was I not enough?

I can't raise the dead
Track Name: Oh, Anxiety
You left me so alone
Fighting on my own
Days and weeks and months
But still you don't show any sign at all

I've learned to try
Learned to wash away the mystery
Pull myself aside
Ignore the thoughts, forget my history

But I'm slipping all the time
My hands don't feel like mine
Wishing everyday, wishing I could myself say
You're not alone, you're not alone

Are you there?
Are you even listening?
I thought you cared
Show your face, be brave for once
'Cause it not our time to lose
And I'm not going to lose you again

I'm losing all the time
My hands don't feel like mine
Wishing everyday, wishing I could myself say
You're not alone, you're not alone

If I can't fight it away
Well I guess I'll just push through, and take it like any other day
If you can't come back to me
Well I know that I can be someone strong

We're all trying all the time
When our thoughts don't feel so right
Wishing everyday, wishing we could hear ourselves say
You're not alone, you're not alone

You're not alone.
Track Name: I Said Goodbye (bonus track)
I had a dream of colours falling
Filling my eyes with things I had never seen
And in that moment when the world spinning
The lines they blurred and freedom I could suddenly

So I said goodbye to the gravity below
To resistance and to every anxious thought I've ever known

(I had a dream)

That my body was weightless
The air I breathed was glowing with a silver light
And all my tears were floating around me
Up and away into the light of the moon above

Goodbye to the gravity below
To resistance and to every anxious thought I've ever known
I said goodbye to fear wasting me away
Thanks for all the time you spent showering me with shame

I can't stay on my own this time
I can't stay on my own this time

Goodbye to the gravity below
To resistance and to every anxious thought I've ever known
I said goodbye to fear wasting me away
Thanks for all the time you spent showering me with shame
