Castaway 03:49
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

Loveless 05:15
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)

Lullaby 04:09
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

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.
