Listen:

Amazing track that truly acts as a curtain call of the Victim Of Stars compilation, as descibed in a review by contactmusic.com:

'Where's Your Gravity?' acts as the curtain call to a jaw droppingly good set that defies comparison.

Lyrics

Baby’s putting on her makeup
Her mouth is swollen as a rose
Countdown, she wraps her legs around him
Weightless, she’s taking off her clothes

Candy colours in her pocket
Bright children hiding in their rooms
Soft toys spread about her pillows
Self-annihilation couldn’t come too soon

Where’s your gravity?
Where’s your mind?
Share your thoughts with me
Waste my time

Slow down, nothing’s gonna save you
Ice cream dripping from your spoon
Ah, but come now, you’re always telling stories
Barefoot walking on the moon

Wake up and someone’s bound to tell you
Your pretty face has gone to hell
So find them something you can trade with
Hand-make something you can sell

Where’s your gravity?
Where’s your mind?
Share your thoughts with me
Waste my time
