about

This song was written after the release of "Reflux" in 2003. It was intended to be the 1st track on the next album, but was instead abandoned and forgotten for several years. It was a late addition to "Hooray," taking the place of another (equally old) song which I pulled from the line-up shortly before the album's completion.

lyrics

Gold flecks on the ground
Strobe past the eyes & scroll under the feet
It gets cold
The wind holds you down
Light gives way to dark & we're pressed where they meet
The buzzing wall of giants fell
And we've all got something to throw by the wayside
The buzzing wall of giants fell
You know we were here & you know we can't stay
