about

A mumbling song, for a quiet scene.

lyrics

VERSE 1

I'm in a daydream and
Everyone's fucking brilliant and
Swirling discs of warm grey mist have
Clouded all my stupid risks

PRE-CHORUS

And when we pass out
On the sticky carpet
Amongst the blissful remnants of youth lost to darkness
I ask

CHORUS 1

What would our Mothers have said?
Would they trust the thoughts in our heads?
What would our Fathers have thought if we abandoned our friends; and fought, and fought?

Who could concentrate on
My inadequacy?
Who would place their bets on
My inability?

VERSE 2

Every time, wandering through
The slowly sinking vessels of booze
I see the shadow of a coward
Refusing to move

PRE-CHORUS

And when we pass out
On the sticky carpet
Amongst the blissful remnants of youth lost to darkness
I ask

CHORUS 2

What would our Mothers have said?
Would they trust the thoughts in our heads?
What would our Fathers have thought if we abandoned our friends; and fought, and fought?

Will we exist for very long?
Do we believe in our songs?
Shall we pretend to belong?
Is it right to be wrong?
