Tempest

Album: Love Is Magic (2018)

  • In the halls and in the churches
    They were preening on their lofty perches
    And holes in their conspiracies
    And they were looking right at me

    Come play Tempest with me
    Or maybe Millipede
    We can while away the hours
    Away from the hordes
    I've almost reached the yellow boards

    I hear the doors of institutions
    Opening and slamming shut
    They were desperate for solutions
    They were drowning in their elocutions

    Come play Tempest with me
    Or maybe Centipede
    We can hang out in the mall
    It's where I feel at home
    And I don't want to be alone

    Come play Tempest with me
    Or maybe Centipede
    We can hang out in the mall
    Away from the hordes
    I've almost reached those nasty green boards Writer/s: John Grant
