The song was born as I read Brian Wilson’s autobiography. It floored me.
I felt so encumbered by the weight of his miseries, so I wrote this song from the perspective of Brian Wilson while gazing at an empty box of Frangelico Liqueur. It was at a time where I had just arrived back from New Orleans to Melbourne and I was disciplining myself to write a song each day.
I wrote a great chunk on St Kilda Beach boardwalk, in a little Russian bakery on Carlisle street, and at my kitchen table.


Frangelico dreams where are you tonight?

To make all my thoughts allright

Lord knows you’re outta sight

And I can’t hide it for much longer

One of these days I’m gonna wake up in the morning feel alright

I won’t listen to the voices in my mind

Telling me it's not safe to go outside

How I used to be much stronger

I see fear in their eyes

No one laughs and no one cries

No one looks to the passer-by

There is no eye to eye

Frangelico dreams I’m only as good as you want me to be

Getting high’s my specialty

I’m in love with the picture of me

And the blankets I live under

I don’t wanna be sad

But I feel as if I’ve lost all my friends

I’m knocking at death's door again

No one seems to understand

Yes I feel like I’m the other

Don’t listen to the press

It’s just distressing

Media is messing

With your mind and sovereignty

It’s a dream

Don’t listen to the press

It’s just a message

Reading is forgetting

What you know and what you see

You're forgetting what you know

You're forgetting what you know

You're forgetting what you know and what you see
