about

Low Profile is the second single from alternative rock band Otiks and the lead track from their forthcoming EP, Contrast.

It is a musical painting about solitary life in modern times and society’s own dark art of conformity.

Meet friends. Influence people. Just don’t let the mask slip.

lyrics

"LOW PROFILE"

I sat alone in the park,
Thinking of... likely lovers.
How it cuts, just like a knife;
Single at this time of life.
I'm not cut out for a romance.
A victim of my own circumstance.

But everyone keeps telling me,
"Only love can set you free!"
(I'm not sure that I stand a chance...)

Ah!

I walked you home in the dark,
Thinking of... all your others.
But your conversation skills are lame
and in the morning I'll forget your name.
Liaisons leave me wanting more.
I don't know what I came here for.

But everyone keeps telling me,
"Only love can set you free!"
(No one gives me a second glance...)

Ah!

I'm not cut out for a romance
A victim of my own circumstance
Uh, but eveyone keeps telling me
"Only love can set you free!"
(I'm not sure that I stand a chance...)

Low profile, better keep a low profile
Low profile, better keep a low profile
