background
Scar was one of a batch of new songs premiered during the band's Life In A Day tour, and it became a great opening track for the final part of the tour.

Whilst the melody and arrangement was kept, the lyrics were totally rewritten when the band recorded it for Real To Real Cacophony.

It became part of the main set for the subsequent tour and then disappeared from the running order.




lyrics
Travelling through,
Flashback to you.
Fire.
I see fire.
Sun in my eyes.
People in love,
Talk far too much.
Cities have lights,
Cities have lights.
Sun in my eyes.
Car passenger,
Fate at the wheel,
Quick kiss of death.
Car passenger,
Fate at the wheel,
Quick kiss of death.

Travelling through.
Cities have lights.
Cities have lights.
Car passenger.
Fire.
I see fire.
