Straighten your tie Echo the tired lines Building a pyramid of lies Abandon us while singing as you leave And now decisions made in ignorance Are carved in history You'll set the bridge on fire And blindly drag us on Demonise the time before No attempt to justify The principles you left on the floor Won't accept that's what you are Evidence you can't ignore Tired of all your fucking lies Taking shots you hope you don't score You're just a dog that caught the car Full speed ahead Towards the looming end In truth, we're drifting without a plan The creeping panic written on your face So close your eyes Desperate, put your fingers in your ears Sing la la la, la la la Declare ignoble myths, it's what we really want Demonise the time before No attempt to justify The principles you left on the floor Won't accept that's what you are Evidence you can't ignore Tired of all your fucking lies Taking shots you hope you don't score You're just a dog that caught the car

Have we pushed ourselves to far this time The rising river overflows The spiteful banks too cruel, too steep to climb Dragged beneath by undertow There must be a better song to sing Some harmony to mend our broken wings Protect us for whatever we may bring Are we alright now? The warm sun dries our weary heads The water slips back to the sea Trust in all the things we said Together in our sanctuary There must be a better song to sing Some harmony to mend our broken wings Protect us for whatever we may bring Are we alright now? I know there's a better song to sing A harmony to mend our broken wings Protect us for whatever we may bring I think we're alright now?

Local Fan 02:49
Football fan From the start you showed me the way Football fan Follow your team home and away Anticipation of the afternoon Waiting for the kick-off in the rain They never hunger, the glory hunters The cats that got the cream You pulled me under, when I was younger Support your local team Football fan Followed your team through my teenage years Football fan Ignore the trophy-chasing sneers The hope that kills us springs eternal Daydream of cheers of victory They never hunger, the glory hunters The cats that got the cream You pulled me under, when I was younger Support your local team They never hunger, the glory hunters The cats that got the cream You pulled me under, when I was younger Support your local team They switch to a different team When they run out of steam The cats have lost their cream You gave me a sense of pride To follow my local side Support your local team You said support the local team I will support the local team We will support the local team

You drew a life in the margins of a book You bought when you were seventeen A graphic novel of success and pain Found on the page of Judy Blume Moments sketched in red ink and in black Characters appear then they are gone Your aspirations and your darkest fears All remembered and recorded here The book discarded, left on the night bus Found on the ride from home to Hope Rain slows down the journey through the town And I can read your history Did you leave it there for me to find Or do you miss it now it's gone Was this all that you wanted to say Are there adventures still to tell Your aspirations and your darkest fears Your hopes and doubts remembered here

We're tiny castles and we're impossible shells Our eyes heavy with wine and with lead Eyelids they slide shut as the conversation ends and a cartoon anvil falls on our heads i feel selfish and foolish and embarrassed and shy I listen to you when you're tired and you cry this bridge will burn and we have no boat as the waves crash around us we sit by the flames
