Tame Impala - Reality In Motion

[Verse 1]
I'm edging closer, shivers all over
It's way too real, I'm way too sober
Usually they've got you covered all over
Lack of composure, I'm walking over
What will I do?
I never had a chance to

There's no one else around you
Not that I was waiting, vision ever fading
Heading for the deep end
Soon as I remember, baby, I surrender
I just need to breathe out
Decisions are approaching, reality in motion

[Verse 2]
Trying to be patient but I'm feeling ancient
Trying to control the way that I'm facing
Suppose that I didn't care anymore
Fate can decide, I can ignore
I'll just pretend that I always knew
That I had the chance to

There's no one else around you
I've done all this waiting, vision ever fading
Making such a promise
Only leads to heartache, closer to an earthquake
Talked about in Hollywood
Trying to stay in motion

“Reality In Motion” zooms in on the thought process of making the first moves with a new romantic or sexual interest, filled with copious amounts of self-doubt and hesitation. Though "Currents" marks a major change in sound and mood for Tame Impala, this song most resembles those from the previous record "Lonerism", in particular the songs “Music to Walk Home By” and “Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control,” from self-doubting lyrics to a mid-lyric cutoff to wrap up the track, a signature of the band’s earlier work.
