about

First official single release from the debut album Standing at the Floodgates.

lyrics

So once upon a time your heart felt well placed
All suggestions of fairness have been all but erased
You spend night after night on your script of demise
No thought of the consequence of such elaborate lies

So I call for a blackout
No ammunition for your poisonous pen
With a memory this long
You better hope I don't forget we were friends

So I call for a blackout
Let us do so with immediate effect
With a memory this long
I will remember what you chose to neglect

If it wasn't for you institutions would stand firm
We're second guessing our arbiters
Only human in turn
Decisions in question
They are forced to defend
The fall of this house
The inevitable end

So I call for a blackout
No ammunition for your poisonous pen
With a memory this long
You better hope I don't forget we were friends

So I call for a blackout
Let us do so with immediate effect
With a memory this long
I will remember what you chose to neglect

Constraints introduced at the will of your kind
To scrutinise each minute
We're played at full speed
Made to look like a fool
Like the fate of tradition
Motives routed in greed

So I call for a blackout
No ammunition for your poisonous pen
With a memory this long
You better hope I don't forget we were friends

So I call for a blackout
Let us heal and not scare
The days end confusion
Video killed more than just the radio star
