about

Digital single, previously unreleased.

lyrics

everybody's standing in the campfire light
staring at their video phones
power up the rockets with the fossil fuel
burning up the dinosaur bones
everything's the same now and everything has changed
everything is boring and everything is strange

flying on a plane
writing on a page
scratching out a message
like the mesolithic age
such technology
I struggle to explain
ink upon paper
flying on a plane

farmers in the fields, soldiers on the walls
I got some new leather shoes
artificial hearts, cameras on Mars
watch it on the 6 o'clock news
letters ain't no better than a pictograph
standing in the temple with the veil torn in half

flying on a plane
writing on a page
scratching out a message
like the mesolithic age
such technology
I struggle to explain
ink upon paper
flying on a plane

I see the blood stained caveman painting
I see the fighter jet vapor trail
I got a particle accelerator
and a hammer and nail

flying on a plane
writing on a page
scratching out a message
like the mesolithic age
such technology
I struggle to explain
ink upon paper
flying on a plane
