Track number four from the debut EP '... and some things we left along the way...' out June 1st 2013! Best enjoyed back to back with 'Who does Shakespeare for fun...?', through headphones, in a dark room. Yes...


This Indigo Swann
Jupiter’s son
Tell how you know, banging your drum

Stuck in my mind
Golden design
Burned out my soul, cause and control

River to sky
Is this my time to know the way

Flee from it all
Red Admiral
Chaos unfolds, transcend the mould

Mushroom and stone
Shrunken in
Golden ratios, our xylophone bones

Darwin to flight
Is this my time to know the way
Is this my time to go

This Antikythera mechanism maps our stone path
Deep blue lagoons to plunder, turning time forward not back

Is this my time to go?
It’s my time to know…?
Is this my time to go?
It’s my time to know…?

One question brothers and sisters as we count down
Did you give your all? Or did you sink (Sheepishly gathering)
Got your bling, pop is king, holy shit I need to lie down
This corridor is narrowing (Sheepishly gathering)
It’s mapped out, solar scout, but you’re too busy hiding
In your reality TV thing (No way of fathoming why)
