lyrics

The Finest Excuses

Over and over we go
Like some waterfall that flows
Shining molten gold, in the first cool rays of morning

Leaving the city behind
Sleepless wide-eyed
Don’t ask when we’ll arrive
Cos we don’t even know ourselves; how can we know?

When they tell us to come home, we’ll only use the finest excuses
In a world that’s bigger than lifetimes, we’ll close our eyes and push in a pin
And get on a plane and don’t look back

We’ve all shovelled cultural snow, but that’s all that they know
If we leave them alone, one day they may come around

Put all our shiny toys down, disconnected slash unbound
Close our eyes to their dogma, return all the lies we’ve been sold, so many lies

When they tell us to comply, we’ll only give the finest excuses
It’s a world that’s bigger than lifetimes, so close your eyes and push in a pin
And get on a plane and don’t look back

Oh, never look back
