lyrics

For once, they asked that someone got the best of you
They wanted me to bring you down a peg or two
And I did their bidding and then I lost you
Now we swap places like the sun and moon
Sun and moon

There’s not a day goes by that I don’t wish that we’d just had a proper fight
Then you’d be the hypotenuse and I could be the one to make things right
And you know that I just might

Pardon me, pardon me and every part of me
Let’s go miss an opportunity, and feel like a stifled sneeze
And soon you’ll be reminded of that blood red moon
That turned those walls into a blood red room
Blood red room

There’s not a day goes by that I don’t wish that we’d just had a proper fight
Then you’d be the hypotenuse and I could be the one to make things right
And you know that I just might

And all at once it hit me and then it came back for more
Much as it’s all indelible, we should still be keeping score
Your answer is to beat your chest while whipping up a crowd
But we are not the light brigade and history is loud
And I’d offer up a proverb but it won’t get you that far
Are you the cat that got the cream or the dog that caught the car?
And despite your gallows humour I see drops form in your eyes
If there ever was a time it’s now - we’ve got to unionise
My condolences my darling my trisyllabic friend
There is violence in the boardrooms there’s a seascape in your head
They say “make the sort of music that you would listen to”
But I am growing too impatient and so this’ll have to do
And there’s a coward with a brainwave which means churning up the ground
I can meet you at your deathbed if I move some stuff around
The smoke grows from the rooftops and it blends into the haar
If there’s one thing that I ask of you, don’t put your faith in Mars
