about

Composed by Porcelain Pill founder Adam Scott-McGuinness, Close to the Sun was created for the atmospheric horror game of the same name, exploring the title’s dark themes and warnings through stunning vocals and mesmerising instrumentals.

“When the opportunity arose to work with Storm in a Teacup and create a single to accompany Close to the Sun, I was really excited. The imagery, story and reference to mythology resonated with everything I am as a songwriter. The game has become the catalyst for the best music I have created to date.” – Porcelain Pill.

lyrics

I feel it in the air
There's something coming
The consequences
Are building

I don't want to be
A sinking ember
They'll all remember
As a warning

What have you done?

What's in the darkest water?
I'm scared to death that
I won't make it out of here alive.
Did somebody say
I feel we're sinking deeper with more
Speed the more we strive.
Is that what we get for playing
too close to the sun?

I feel a little scared
A storm is coming
The thunder's breaking
Upon us

Now I don't understand
But I fear the danger
The static and the sparks
Can hold
What have you done?

What's in the darkest water?
I'm scared to death that
I won't make it out of here alive.
Did somebody say
I feel we're sinking deeper with more
Speed the more we strive.

Is that what we get for playing
too close to the sun?
Bridge (no lyrics)

We’ve been playing with fire
Now it's all set ablaze
Oh what have we done?
Is that what we get for playing
Too close to the sun?
