ABOUT FURNITURE AND THE ALBUM
////////////////

We are an independent rock band from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Being independent means we do not have a team of label people who write nice biographies for us.

Our sophomore album is They Made Me Out Of Dreams You've Forgotten. In it are songs written over a span of 5 years. Songs about hope, hopelessness, being stuck, coming unstuck, and the end of the world. We're surprised as anyone that it ever got finished, and we're glad it's finally here to share.

If you like our music, the best thing you could do for us, almost even better than giving us money, is to tell all your friends about us. Thanks.

FURNITURE DAN ALBUM
////////////////

Furniture adalah band rock indie dari Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Pada kami “indie” berdefinasi yang kami tidak bergantung penuh pada label luar untuk menerangkan siapa kami.

They Made Me Out Of Dreams You’ve Forgotten adalah album kedua kami. Album ini dipenuhi hasil daripada 5 tahun kami berkarya tentang harapan, putus asa, jalan buntu, lepas dari segala masalah , dan berakhirnya dunia. Walaupun kami masih tidak percaya kami baru berjaya menyiapkan album ini, tetapi ianya adalah sebuah album hebat untuk dikongsi bersama.

Sebarkan dan terima kasih.

Track Name: Once Set In Stone
Once upon a time
In a land now lost to a sober life
She didn't care for it
I was despised
So I left the ever afters behind

I was a chivalrous king
Who fell in love and made her my queen
I wasn't up for it
She left in the night
So I left the ever afters behind

She came back and I got my head right

To our refuge we ride
Raise a drawbridge on the world outside
I wasn't made for it
She's too kind
To be holding the fort by my side
Just don't let the ever afters decide

All of the signs once set in stone
Now nothing is sacred anymore
Track Name: Entrails
Bury my desire
Give me space to hide
I won't be denied
So bury my desire

Turn turn turn around
You've got it in you
Turn turn turn around
Loosen your noose
Somewhere along the way
You might find you've been used
So turn turn turn around
Start over new
Seek your own truth

Bury my desire
Rig your own demise
I won't sympathise
So bury my desire

Back to the wall we alternate (c'mon now)
Give me a hand don't let it slip (c'mon now)
From underneath the hopes we keep (c'mon now)
Digging for something real
Track Name: False Start
Feels like this body's getting old
Bent on the weight of pride
Knowing all there is to know
When all the cynicism's spent
Come around and you find
Your stars might align

Thinking it over
Setting it free
Not a surrender
Just release

Seven days, seven nights
In the early hours we bleed a sacrifice
On and on never the two might part
It's the key that winds my automatic heart

Seven days, seven nights
Take me down you're never getting me alive
On and on never the two might part
It's the key that winds my automatic heart

Feels like the story has been told
Too many times before
Now we've lost the plot
When everything is said and done
Come around and you find
Nothing has been won

Seven days, seven nights
Caught in still frames as we're crossing this divide
On and on never the two might part
It's the key that winds my automatic heart

Seven days, seven nights
Mending keepsakes of a life we leave behind
On and on never the two might part
It's the key that winds my automatic heart
Track Name: Vacancies
Made for rotating lives
Left to our own devices
It's a start for the vacant heart
Carry on forget goodbyes

Find a way hide behind
Every cloud's silver lining
Take a step back you might attest that
So much life is still worth the living

Vacancies crossing the line
From your mouth to mine
Vacancies walk down the aisle
Won't you stay awhile
Vacancies go for a ride
Take us home tonight

Think you see through it all
Had enough of this whoring
Hit erase on a tainted slate
Time to reinvent old songs

Time and space open wide
Infinite and inviting
Backbeat rush and we give ourselves
To the days as they go by
Track Name: Lagu Chenta (Impenetrably Yours)
So hard to ignore it
Turn around, turn around
Feel the pace move
From a trickle
To a thing of its own

Stay true to a heart
That beats for somebody else
In one lifetime
Sing a different tune
Inspite of ourselves

Here it goes now

The fools come alive
With their intentions and spies
Stacking their sorrows on sorrows
For failed tomorrows
But hey they don't care
How the deceptions compare
Stacking their sorrows on sorrows
For failed tomorrows

And how does such a simple thing
Become so obscene?
Is it because you can say those words
But don't know what they mean?

I surrender

A fear for every moment
Let your defences fall
Go right back to the start
Sometimes you give it up
To get it all

When life's not your own
Now all your heroes are gone
And you look for the light but
The tunnel is just too long

Stuck in reverse
And all the traffic lights don't work
Lest we open up old sores
I'll stay impenetrably yours
Track Name: One For The Rest Of Us
Skimming the fault lines
Living to kill time
Breathe

Caught in a tailspin
Suffer the mess we're in
Dream

Storm in a teacup
Suddenly who we are
Feels so unreal

Wake up to a brand new world

It's like an itch you just can't scratch
Memories of lives you never had
The thought that there might be something more
And when you find the going hard
Consider the line to fill your part
Starting at your door

Bring on the paper chase
(Skimming the fault lines)
Don't let the paper waste
(Living to kill time)
Fold

You'll never get enough
(Caught in a tailspin)
Some day it'll break your heart
(Suffer the mess we're in)
Time to go

But in the meanwhile
(Storm in a teacup)
Living in this denial
(Suddenly who we are)
Feels so serene

But impermanence always wins
Track Name: Penguine
Soft into the night
Long Island Iced Teas and stunted goodbyes
It took me by surprise
She left on a flight
Autopilot on a seek and destroy
One heartbreak at a time

And now I run on faith
To make it all alright
Forever whenever

Nothing is as real as the pain you feel

How do I run run run away from you?
But I'm caught in the spaces between us
Forever whenever

Nothing is as real as the pain you feel
(How do I run run run away from you?)
Track Name: All Too Morose Parties
So they say someday the world will end
When the sun finds all its fuel is spent
Burning out all our hopes and plans
Can't escape this final circumstance

So what's the point of all we do here?

So they say it could all disappear
Giant rock enters the atmosphere
Crashing on everything we hold dear
That would be tragically surreal

So what's the point of all we do here?

Figure it out

Going in circles we are
Propelled around our star
Is there a captain on board?
Please let me out of here

Hurling through infinite space
Requires some kind of faith
In tomorrows staying the same
Please let me out of here

Evolutionary bluff
We made it just to get snuffed
The universe has a laugh
Please let me out of here

Pushing our weight up the hill
We keep on going until
There's something better to do

So they say we might as well be dead
When the sea rises above our heads
Drowning out coupons and grocery lists
Normal life would then cease to exist

So what's the point of all we do here?

Going in circles we are (figure it out)
Propelled around our star (figure it out)
Hurling through infinite space (figure it out)
Requires some kind of faith (figure it out)

Evolutionary bluff (figure it out)
We made it just to get snuffed (figure it out)
Pushing our weight up the hill (figure it out)
We keep on going until

Figure it out
Track Name: Infinite Impossibilities
Find a shade in stormy weather
Maybe we could live forever
I won't mind it's just passing time

Give me warmth and give me shelter
Pull the plug don't let it suffer
By the way I know what you'd say

So we try, circumvent
All the effort to forget
But we find other plans
I am childish you are child-like

I wish I was wrong
If only a song could change your mind
I wish I was wrong
but I'm not that strong

Strike your fears before they gather
Even if that demon never ever was
Do it just because

Time again we'll find December
Another season left to squander
Can't you see what it did to me?

So it goes, force of will
Running backwards standing still
It's been long overdue
You could say I saw this coming

(I wish I was wrong)
Find a shade in stormy weather
(I wish I was wrong)
Give me warmth and give me shelter
(I wish I was wrong)
Strike your fears before they gather
(I wish I was wrong)
Time again we'll find
Track Name: Jane Behind The Glass
There she waits
All framed in light
Hold me down
As these words take flight

Let me yearn, let me yearn
For a while
Yearn, let me yearn
For a while

There she waits
In another life
Hold me down
As these words take flight
Track Name: Monuments
Raised iron to rust
Monuments ache
They're coming apart
But we're still the same
Monuments torn
Voices will chime
The ghosts of our scorn
Remembered in rhyme
As they wander new halls

Away, away
Give up your reasons
To stay, to stay
Feel nothing
Because, because
What makes a man
Is his worth, his worth
In finality when we leave
The monuments we build will grieve

Counting down the days
Distant rumbling engines sigh
Whispered neon lullabies
The city sleeps as it waits for you

Counting down the days
14 billion cycles deep
Stars are born and stars perish
The best laid plans might not wait for you

Oh what a change can a day make?
How else to live a life when someday it will end?
Oh make a change before the day breaks
Take time to realise truth is its own defence
Track Name: Lights Out (False Start Reprise)
It's a long way to follow
So we drop anchor
And stay for the night
With our hearts on a tether
Unravel the mysteries
Of honourable crimes
Here there aren't any winners
Let go of your miseries
And give up the spoils
It's lights out for now
So don't make a sound
