lyrics

Settle down now, there’s a bright idea, and it’s only going to get more absurd
Maybe see you at the equinox, we’ll make sure that our jokes are overheard
And you called us in to listen close and no one really took you at your word

Buy the morning, buy the afternoon, buy everything you see that’s not nailed down
I’m assuming that you’re out of luck, why else would you be sat here with us now?
I can feel it in my throat another lie about a made up town

And someday we can all mythologise
How we were there to draw the battle lines
And in advance of that I apologise
For it all
For it all

Quite a stumble, made you act your age, and it came and went just like a thunderbolt
Musn’t grumble, mustn’t cause a fuss, too afraid that I might stand and turn to salt
And I know that I should know that and I know that that is not your fault

Please be here, no one’s watching us, this evening’s not a narrative device
Causing trouble is your oxygen, I just wish that it was focussed and precise
And if Uranus could see us now he’d marvel at our child-like minds

And someday we can all mythologise
How we were there to draw the battle lines
And in advance of that I apologise
For it all
For it all

Do you remember when the sky caved in and everyone was told to stay in bed
And through the rumble of a splitting world I remembered everything I never said
And everyone was bracing for it everyone was left for dead

And someday we can all mythologise
How we were there to draw the battle lines
And in advance of that I apologise
For it all
For it all
