about

Triplex Part 1 is the first in a three part series of EPs, and picks up where Tycho Brahe's 2006 album Atlantic left off. During the time of recording what would become the Triplex series of EPs, the band went through several personnel changes, and suffered the loss of their studio in Brisbane's devastating flood of January 2011. This resulted in a long period of rebuilding and recovery, only to be followed by yet another flood scare, and ultimately a complete relocation of the band's facility to higher, safer ground. Overall, this delayed the finalisation of the Triplex EP series by at least two years.

The founding duo of the band, Ken Evans and Georgina Emery, emerging from this period of adversity with a new resilience, focus, and strength of purpose, elected to continue with the project. After a brief dalliance with Hi-NRG dance music (Sex Rocket, 2012), the Triplex EP series sees a return to Tycho Brahe's original direction, as established on their first album Cassiopeia in 2000, and further explored on 2006's Atlantic.

Track Name: Castaway
I can look and I can see
You've got no grip on society
Your hair's too long your clothes too old
Your credit spent your assets sold

Castaway - locked away
We could be lovers, we could find other
Castaways - locked away
Live undercover until we discover youth

Love may come and love may go
And superpowers will overthrow
Friends depart their places are bare
Authorities will never care

Castaway - locked away
We could be lovers, we could find other
Castaways - locked away
Live undercover until we discover youth

Castaway - your hair's too long
Castaway - your clothes too old
Castaway - your credit spent
Castaway - your ass is sold
Track Name: Loveless
Is this an illness that I bear?
A brother of consciousness
That helps me to prepare
Defence of a scene
That some may find obscene
I know you won't understand

You know that I don't want it
I know that you don't need it
You know I can't afford to
And I just won't believe it
It's a complex process
Styled on my psychosis
Do what you have to do
But leave me out of love

I don't expect your consent
Sleeping with dishonesty
That isn't what I meant
If that's not for you
Then I'll respect your view
Just hold me one last time

You know that I don't want it
I know that you don't need it
You know I can't afford to
And I just won't believe it
It's a complex process
Styled on my psychosis
Do what you have to do
But leave me out of love

(Leave me out of love)

Rules of the heart
Are tearing us apart
Rules of the heart
Are tearing us - tearing us apart

You know that I don't want it
I know that you don't need it
You know I can't afford to
And I just won't believe it
It's a complex process
Styled on my psychosis
Do what you have to do
But leave me out of love

(Leave me out of love)
Track Name: Lullaby
Once is not enough
For me to fall in love
I twist the knife
And lay you slowly down
As love becomes a sin
As darkness closes in
I sing to you this final lullaby

Close your eyes and sleep forever
Close your eyes and lay with me
Close your eyes we'll be together
Sleep my love goodnight

I believe in truth
In everything we do
The youth we had is gone
But still I try (I try)
And as you slip away
Your dying breath I pray
And sing to you this final lullaby
(Don't cry)

Close your eyes and sleep forever
Close your eyes and lay with me
Close your eyes we'll be together
Sleep my love goodnight

If we should fall to sleep
The lord I pray my soul to keep
Return to dust
We'll burn not rust
Remember that in god we trust
This is my lullaby
(Lullaby goodnight)
Goodnight my love goodnight
(Sleep my love goodnight)
Sleep my love goodnight
