    Lyrics

    Well here we are then you and me
    Some little joke of chemistry
    With all our sun bleached history
    Fading as the light gets strong and
    We are brave and we are fakes of
    Tortured art and higher stakes
    And winters knocking at the gates
    But the clocks are wrong

    I am the steel, I am the dare
    The angry kid with mud in her hair
    Setting off those warning flares
    Till the sky got light
    And you are the seasons, you are the free fall
    Here's the smell of tarmac, here's the clarion call
    Here's the reasoning behind it all
    Right here tonight

    'Cause I've struggled for directions
    A blank page as far as I can see
    But I'm open to suggestions
    So you tell me
    You tell me
    You tell me

    The corner cafe got closed down

    A funeral pyre for the wise and the clowns
    A little drunk this time around
    But the feeling's there
    They're drawing out their pocket knives
    Till just the singular survives
    For all the currency it buys
    They don't much care

    'Cause I've struggled for directions
    A blank page as far as I can see
    But I'm open to suggestions
    So you tell me
    You tell me
    You tell me

    Now colours blazing through the sky
    With autumn fury in our eyes
    We'll gather every battle cry
    And lay them at their door
    'Cause for all the reasons that they spent
    To turn poetry to self defence
    I guess that what I really meant
    Was that's what it's for
    But you tell me
    You tell me
    You tell me
