Running 03:14
Lyrics: Born into a neon life Flashing screens in overdrive Baptised in urgency From our first breath Growing up deadlines Become the goals before our eyes Judged on our proficiency In this trepid race I’m running You’re running Watch the world spin on its heel As time stands still for no one I’m running You’re running We’re hamsters in a wheel of lies That time belongs to no-one A perch in society Proves your pedigree The higher up the ladder The more your worth Numbers form the lines That dictate our lives Slaves to the pressure We forget our place
2.
Do you feel the ghost of human decency? She’s buried beneath veils of ignorance, scratching to be set free Hello? She cries, tearing at her insides, rumbling like a vocano’s wife. Hello? Do you hear? Is she lost to our deaf ears? Fed on a diet of violence amplified Lie upon lie, swallow every word Fear’s a weapon to turn hearts blind Forged by its grasp We’re soldiers in their graveyard Why do people insist on being so cruel? We occupy a severed world, faceless screens without rules Hello? It’s the truth, the victim on the other side’s no different to you Hello? Do you hear? Are we lost through our deaf ears?
3.
These shoes don’t fit anymore Their stale seams linger on the floor Been too long in this place Bound by hope and promises made Every time declines, Through change I’m not the same I’ll take my leave here I’ll take my leave, from paths outgrown I’ll take my leave here Carving it new through the unknown What’s passed served me well Framed lessons that were invaluable Change stirs like the sea Moments fade I’m not the same
4.
I’ve been hiding from the choice in my life, waiting for the storm to pass But its tailwind buries me alive and chokes me in that grasp I can't move. I can't breathe. Here I stand on the point of breaking, every choice cuts in deep I’m afraid to take one Im at the edge of me As I gaze out from the rubble of my mind a sickened fear takes shape I’m paralysed by the ticking hand of time and a desperate need to slow change I can't move. I can't breathe. Here I stand on the point of breaking, every choice cuts in deep I’m afraid to take one I’m at the edge of me Here I stand on the point of breaking, every turn twists differently I’m afraid to move forward I’m at the edge of me

Who We Show 03:29
Daylight trickles through the curtain blind Our eyes cast it back Not ready, not ready to let this in It’s too late to begin We’re wearing masks, carved of our skin, frail glass to shroud ourselves within Fighting, falling, stumbling through the dark, we shield our fragile hearts Lost to stories and lies that rule the lines we know, masks are who we show Lost in motion we pass each other by Silently moving shadows in the night Not ready, not ready to share the depth inside As time etches out the statue of our lives We’re wearing masks, carved of our skin, frail glass to shroud ourselves within
6.
Loving you is one of the best things Holding you is one of the best things in my life Was lost till you found me, shut down, unhappy, everything was dripping in shades of grey Till your charming heart took mine to the start and showed me life could be a magic place All that I am, who I can be, comes through you seeing me All of my fear, that uncertainty, melts in your heart watching me All that I am, who I could be comes because you see me Being loved by you is one of the best things Being held you is one of the best things in my life The moments together, spent lost in each other Just being, letting the world slip away I’ve never been so sure of someone before, you help me to be a better person everyday

about

A world traveller, and an explorer within herself, Australian Indie Pop Artist Kirbanu weaves the human experience from despair to euphoria, into beautifully uncomfortable songs.

No shallow waters exist as she takes you on a painfully honest journey of self-inquiry exploring inner struggles, existential questions, change making, as well as celebrating this perfectly imperfect life.

In her new EP “Echo Chamber” Kirbanu examines the metaphorical thought and social bubble we find ourselves in, which limits our ideas, perceptions and perspectives. She touches on how we are shaped by this experience as well as how we can transcend it.
