ROMA


Rome, oh Rome
Where is your empire in the ground
A pile of stones
Take out the wind there's not a sound


Hundreds of years
Yet it's all stayed the same
Just different coloured clothes
And a different sounding name
The weather keeps on changing
But the sky’s still there
The lights had led me to the front
And burnt me like a flare

Oh what is this anchor here
Why won't it just disappear
Driven by a fear that just won't go
And yet you come so close
Yet you're so far away
It doesn't have to be uphill


Rome oh Rome
Cycles of nature you can see
We've got frail bones
We could just break so easily
Hundreds of years
Yet it's all stayed the same
Just different coloured clothes
And a different sounding name
The weather keeps on changing
But the sky's still there
The lights had led me to the front
And burnt me like a flare


Oh what is this anchor here
Why won't it just disappear
Driven by a fear that just won't go
And yet you come so close
Yet you're so far away
It doesn't have to be uphill


Craters in the street
Now are things you have to keep
Saw you in my sleep
With diamonds in a rubbish heap


And you'll never know
Things will stay untold
Some things will never be

Oh what is this anchor here
Why won't it just disappear
Driven by a fear that just won't go
And yet you come so close
Yet you're so far away

It doesn't have to be uphill

about

Szymon Sydney, Australia

Music was Szymon Borzestowski's life. He loved it, lived it, breathed it. A bright, brilliant talent, the young Newcastle artist would lose himself in his bedroom studio for days, honing his humble yet hypnotic artpop.
Sadly, Szymon lost his life at just 23. Lovingly curated by family and friends, 'Tigersapp' is the record he would have released, a glimpse into the vibrant world he hoped to share.
