Album: Ants From Up There (2021)

  • Concorde, this organ
    The new one I'm forming
    It's grown so persistent on you
    By the morning I'd fell to my feet
    And the doctor said we are unfortunately
    Running out of options to treat
    What a funny way to speak

    And you, like Concorde
    I came, a gentle hill racer
    I was breathless
    Up on every mountain
    Just to look for your light

    Concorde, I miss you
    Don't text me 'til winter
    I can hardly afford
    A second summer of Splinters
    This staircase, it leads only to
    Some old pictures of you
    Through a thousand mile long tube
    Hey, what's a city boy to do?

    And you, like Concorde
    I came, a gentle hill racer
    I was breathless
    Up on every mountain
    Just to look for your light
    But for less than a moment
    We'd share the same sky
    And then Isaac will suffer
    Concorde will fly

    Concorde, we're old now
    And you wield a lightsaber
    And led by the dark to our place on the table
    So don't tell me you're hungry
    'Cause darling I'm starving myself
    And I heard you're on Atkins as well
    I was made to love you
    Can't you tell?

    And you, like Concorde
    I came, a light blue sleeper
    And I laid dead or twitching
    For most of the night
    But I know that you'll be there
    The Sandman inside
    And I'll come to like a child
    Concorde and I
    Die free this time Writer/s: Charlie Wayne, Georgia Ellery, Isaac Wood, Lewis Evans, Luke Mark, May Kershaw, Sergio Maschetzko, Tyler Hyde
