about

it's about an inappropriately selfish perception of the death of a friend

lyrics

Old friend died the other day
Didn’t see that one coming my way
Thought he’d be round, least for a while
Digging in tends to be our style these days
Old friend gave up in the end
Laid bare and now he can’t amend his soul
Guess the mantle passed to me
Hard act to follow legacy

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too

Here I stand a gallant man
My doubting confidence, no guiding hand
I’m branching out - might leave the house
There a world outside my friend knew all about
Old friend wanted to be free
The City glints and winks and beckons me
Doldrums lift, least for a while
Maybe this is my newstyle

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too
