about

An eco-waltz for our sinking ship. Hear me frantically bailing while Brighty plays circus organ.

lyrics

Sing me my Queen
A song fit for our dreams
A song coloured with laughter and light
A nursery-rhyme
For these sour old times
Full of famine and bloodshed and blight

Sing me my dear
A song seasoned with tears
A song true to the trouble and strife
An atheist hymn
For the gods to step in
And make sure we all end up all right

Wise up wise up
Our orbit’s degrading
And no-one’s complaining
Wise up wise up
We are in charge of nothing at all

Sing me my friend
A song fit for the end
A song tempered with steel and strain
Starving for real
For a new set of wheels
And praying to god it would rain

Sing me my love
A song straight from above
Of the only real master to take
It lives in your eyes
And the only surprise
Is how long it took me to locate

Wise up wise up
Our orbit’s degrading
And no-one’s complaining
Wise up wise up
We are in charge of nothing at all
