lyrics

We are more like the arrow than the archer’s straining wrist
I am set off into the sky just a catalyst
Cat gut string for my violin and a horse hair bow to play it with
all my homes are catacombs to come
so make mine a double, oh the rooster cries tonight
he is a balanced soul when the shadows fall again

So crop your hair tight to the skull so you can feel more of the sun
as it bakes your mind into the summer shapes again
We are made like the railways lines,
we’re just sleepers and that ancient iron
that was carried down from the mountains long ago
So we sit under the everglow, of a city oh that hums yellow
every night just to spite the dark again

Oh, brace your body for the change
when it comes and it’s just the same
you’re loving nobody, love nobody but yourself
Oh, set them up on the shouting hill
when our mind’s are bloody but our bodies they still
love nobody, love nobody but ourselves

Said it before, i’ll say it again
i’ve got nothing to lose, nothing to gain
when i’m nothing more than a sinking ship

Said it before and I’ll say it again
climbing up my mast in the pouring rain
is every image clear enough in your mind to be understood?

said it before, i’ll say it again
oh my mama loves me and i’ll do the same
but that knowledge don’t come free, or even easily

said it before, say it again
i’ve got nothing to lose, nothing to gain
