about

CAIRO Toronto, Ontario

We have an affinity for haunting quiet & ambient walls of sound. Our music – sometimes orchestral & sometimes minimal – can be characterized as elemental and strangely familiar while remaining explorative and raw. We love almonds, water & boat loads of reverb. ... more

Track Name: Selfish
Watered down truth
I like the way you dilute
Like water into acid
It's gonna burn through
Gonna hurt x 2

Keep yourself
Keep yourself
Keep yourself from harm
I know it's selfish
But if I get one thing
It's this

From the center sun
I've lost everyone in pursuit of the only one
One billion miles travelled far and wide
To find no resemblance of it

You have tampered with my
Instincts about love
Stormy weather can't slow me down enough
From getting to you

I keep myself
I keep myself
I keep myself from harm
I know it's selfish
I just want one thing
It's this

From the center sun
I've lost everyone in pursuit of the only one
One billion miles travelled far and wide
To find no resemblance of it

Until you
You

From the center sun
I've lost everyone in pursuit of the only one
One billion miles travelled far and wide
To find no resemblance of it
Until you
You
You (Acapella)
Track Name: All These Colours
Verse 1:
I've been idling
Idling by the window
Looking out
Out into the rain

If I thought honestly
That I could change the world
I would have done so

I know it ain't easy for you
It ain't easy for me too

Chorus 1:
There was a time
We used to sit in the fields
And dream about the city
Now that city is breaking down

If there was a time
Where I could pinpoint my happiness
This is it
This moment

Verse 2:
If I had a helping hand
To make it all the easier
I would have done so

If I could understand
The workings of the workingman
I would have done so

I know it ain't easy for you
It ain't easy for me too

Chorus 2

(All These Colours, All These Colours)

Chorus 3

Outro:

All these colours start to look the same,
Let the motor run, let the motor run
All these colours start to look the same
Let the motor run, Let the motor run

Let the motor run, Motor run (x 3)
Track Name: Addict
Walking down that aisle
I see you in white
Although I turn my eyes from you
I'm filled with fright
My love for you is eating me from the inside out
Starving the "I do," starving the "I do," starving the "I do,"

I need you tonight
Like I need another barrier in my life
Construction zones are marked by the t-cell sites
I don't need you tonight

You're in everything I see in sight
I've made a vow to never want even a little bite
Of something that is bigger than I could ever chew
Starving the "I do," starving the "I do," starving the "I do,"

I need you tonight
Like I need another barrier in my life
Construction zones are marked by the t-cell sites
I don't need you tonight

Tempted to give in I reach for you
Despite the headache I'll endure for one more fight
My love for you is rotting me with every bite
Starving the "I do," starving the "I do," starving the "I do,"
Track Name: Alternative, Ambient, Folk, Orchestral Pop, Pop - Vampyre
In the evening
I am happy
Like a Vampyre
Who feeds
And in the morning
I am ugly
I am the bad seed
Who crawls out into the night

I don't want this
I don't need this
I didn't choose to be like this
But I am
I am
I am?

If you wake me
I may never sleep again
If you love me
You'll never let it end

I don't want this
I don't need this
I didn't choose to be like this
But I am
I am
I am?

Nah nah nah nah nah (x4)

I don't want this
I don't need this
I didn't choose to be like this
But I am
I am
I am?
Track Name: Golden Cup
I'm looking for a hole in the golden cup
Looking for a reason why we've become so stuck

Living on the line of my invisible phone
Living on the ocean where I come from
It's all been done before and I know I'll do it again

People always get me wrong
I'm not angry-just bitter bitter bitter
The seasons will change but not my temperament
Steady Rollin' like the wind, like the wind, like the wind

Can I have your shoulder to cry on?
Can I have your back to load up all my problems?
I'll get you back I'll get you back

Won't get over this one, won't even try
I wanted something better than this world could supply
I'm a bankrupt baby paying his dues
Working for tomorrow, can you live in my shoes?
Will they fit you? Suffocate you? Eat you alive?

People always get me wrong
I'm not angry-just bitter bitter bitter
The seasons will change but not my temperament
Steady Rollin' like the wind, like the wind, like the wind

Can I have your shoulder to cry on?
Can I have your back to load up all my problems?
I'll get you back I'll get you back

You're lucky; you lived fast, the fastest
You know you had a head start
You're not getting any younger, so slow down
You're only gonna fall apart

Can I have your shoulder to cry on?
Can I have your back to load up all my problems?
I'll get you back I'll get you back

I'll get you back
I'll get you back
Ohh I'll get you back
Track Name: Halfway There
I had my heart set on the real thing baby
But truthfuly you're only halfway there
You've been knocking on the wrong doors lately
Cause either no one's home or no one cares
Always be your second option
But second fiddles not my name

Coming like a locomotive
Passengers who'll never stop
I fill my train car with foolish notions
Use me as your fancy prop

But then I got the deepest oceans
Brimming full with other sharks for me
I spill my blood for the cold reaction
And watch them closely as they come to feed

Thought I was a decent swimmer
But maybe I don't need to swim

Hiding in the darkest waters
Evolution has done its part
Fill myself with the guilty conscience
I am living with a poison heart

I had my heart set on the real thing baby
But truthfully you're only halfway there
