about

'Unravelling' is Villareal's fourth album, and the most experimental to date. Autumnal strings collide with acoustic guitars, whilst late night found sounds are pushed to the fore to give an eerie sense of displacement. For lovers of forward thinking and pastoral indie, such as Wilco, David Sylvian, Talk Talk and Nick Drake.

Track Name: Orange Host
Start at the end of the book
It takes too long to work out who are the crooks
The host is a flame in the night
Guiding me away from the rocks and the tide

Start at the end of the line
In a station closed since the dawning of time
My face fallen into the sea
Shows itself again in a river downstream

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: New Miracles
Lost in a box for 90 days
My soul has left the ground again
And should you need someone to blame
The world/birds look beautiful today

Flags are waving in the wind it's time to change my side again
Colour bleeds in kodachrome words will leave you all alone
And if I force a smile I'll keep the devil down
But I've lost more than I ever found

Chorus

Waiting for new miracles
To find their way home
Waiting for new miracles

That day the sentiment expired we threw it all into the fire
We lost the keepsakes and the phone
But worse we lost the way back home
And now the world is lit by light bulbs in the sky
I'll sit and count them all tonight
I smile just to keep the devil down
But I've lost more than I'll ever found

Repeat Chorus

Dropped like a coin into the sea
Darkness is closing in on me

Waiting for...

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Bodies In The Water
There are bodies in the water there are souls upon the shore
But in houses of the future you won't find what you're looking for
There are bodies in the water upon the jawline of this coast
And if it wasn't for my missed fortune I'd be more than just your ghost
There are bodies in the water there is motion in your heart
But if you ever lose your way again you'll be dealing with the past

There are bodies in the water submerged just out of view
And as we dream of new horizons we'll find its us taht it happens to
There are bodies in the water and in the windows of your soul
The price for new technology?
Our identities got sold

Bodies...

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Low Cloud Revisits
Low cloud revisits
Here I stand bearing platitudes
Nobody looks up anymore
And all I know will be washed away in good time

Slow down the minutes
How could you breathe at that altitude?
And when your bones they hit the ground
Did all you know get washed away forever?

Chorus

It's over now

Wood smoke delivers upon the land and into the sea
We're nothing more than visitors
And all we know will be washed away forever

Repeat Chorus

I never got the chance to tell you how I feel


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Sirens
Throw your shoes into the sea
Show begins don't be late
Follow me big mistake
Words are blind they waste my time
Everyone stands alone
in their heart spider's go

Chorus

All this time wasted on your cloud nine
Learning to fall apart to the beat of your heart

You wear a smile that to the eye
Ran the race, came in first
But in truth did your worst
The world moved on and proved us wrong
So set sail go remote
Leave this land leave the boat...

Repeat Chorus

Warning signs those sirens that scream all night
Follow the old black line back to the start

(Four hundred day July appearing over night/If I can't change your mind well maybe I'll change mine)

I'm hearing voices I'm hearing sirens...


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Keys To The Back Of My Mind
I was always so certain that I would make it back
I wasted more than these words on that
Another sainted dominion that we will never see
You wasted all of those years on me

Chorus

Lights go down, I'm still earthbound
Shaken by the passing of time
No second chance I'm in the dark
Searching for the keys to my mind

This is where the trail stops now
I can't make it back
I use to follow the North Star home
I think i started a landslide that left me on my own
Now i cant tread where the tree ghosts go

Repeat Chorus

The fuel-line split my heart got hit
Lying in the wreck of my life
Now all those things those might have beens
They've vanished for the rest of all time

Vanished...

(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Last Of The Pale Winter Sun
Fail safe, my hand shakes at the door you never should open
I returned to get burned by the last of the pale winter sun

Delete me, completely don't dance with the stationary idle
The ant king is basking in the last of the pale winter sun

His flight path is worn
Your bible got torn

Chorus

Time hold out its hand which snaps like a branch
We are unravelling
Days blur into one I have begun
Completely unravelling

A new dream to change team
And to feel something good has begun
A strange sight at first light
In the last of the pale winter sun

My memory is worn
Your patience got torn

Repeat Chorus

Time holds out its hand which snaps like a branch
We are unravelling
Days haunt like a ghost, but I'm going for broke
Curtail this unravelling...


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Telegraph Hill
If I close my eyes they won't find us here
If I hold my breathe they will disappear

Everybody changed that day
Everybody moved away

I can't land this thing if it still on the ground
Even birdmen sing up on Telegraph Hill

Everybody changed that day
Everybody fades away

Everybody changed that day
Everybody moved away
Everybody changed that day
Everybody fades away


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Summer Is Dreaming
(Taken from the 'Road To Nowhere' biography)

It was as if I hadn't really been there at all
I'm out there somewhere so find me
Summer is dreaming...

Things slowed down and we reacquainted with that familiar feeling of dread

All of the things that had once been on the horizon were now behind us
Despite the fact that some of the bits are almost certainly in the wrong place and others don't seem to fit at all
I wouldn't have wanted it any other way

Another human shape, I'm out there somewhere so find me
Someone is dreaming...

The sky was already burning red as we chose our hiding places
In the fading twilight waiting to be found
Everyone else is leaving now

I'm out there somewhere so find me


(Words & Music by Simon Parker)
Track Name: Damaged
Ocean lay me down
My world run aground
Ocean lay me down


I'm not here today
I'm not here today

Daylight pass me through
My world torn in two
Daylight pass me through

My before and after
Your tears will bring disaster


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
Track Name: Harbouring
Fortune smiles on me
Where the river meets the sea
On an elemental day

Crows fly south from here
There will be nothing more this year
So it's time to get alone
Walk the golden mile
Where I lit up for your smile
On illuminated wheels

Reflected in a lake
Was a half forgotten face
A clue t what I'd lost
And from that moment it was clear
All the doubts they disappeared
You must become what you love

All these things we've yet to see
They are here bathed in silver light
All those things we've yet to see
They are here tonight they are harbouring
And every chord will just play at once
As the darkness falls take my curtain call
We close our eyes as the years roll past
Now I am slowing down we're not built to last
And the only thing that makes sense to me
Is to leave this path let the moment be
Morning will come
Morning will call

All those things we've yet to see
They are here tonight they are harbouring

I gave my all
I gave my everything


(Words & Music Simon Parker)
