What are you fighting for? Holy truth? Brother, I choose this mortal life Lived in perfect symmetry What I do that will be done to me. As the needle slips into the run-out groove Love, maybe you feel it too. And maybe you'll find, Life is unkind And over so soon There is no golden gate There's no heaven waiting for you.
Perfect Symmetry (Keane album). Redirected from Better Than This (Keane song)). Perfect Symmetry is the third studio album by English rock band Keane, released on 13 October 2008 in the United Kingdom. According to international Island Records manager, Jon Turner, "the general international feel is of excitement and 'Spiralling' is a favourite track of the US company.
Perfect Symmetry is the third studio album by English rock band Keane, released on 13 October 2008 in the United Kingdom. Studio album by Keane. Also most notable is the emergence of a 1980s' synthpop-influenced style on most songs such as "Spiralling" and "Again and Again".
Perfect Symmetry – This song is the most like the usual synthpop style of Keane’s previous work, and it was an obvious single off of this album. With it’s cold synth it continues the general mood of the album with an almost voyeuristic interest in the pointlessness of life. Ironically, the song seems to present a viewpoint of life as karmic, and pitilessly just.
Album Name Perfect Symmetry. Released date 13 October 2008. Labels Island Records.
