lyrics

You were drunk
Just drunk enough to come unstuck
You wrapped around a big ol' tree just out of town
Now your tales they are all cast in stone
The stones are falling from the sky

All the nuns
Strumming guitars and writing songs
Songs of praise
But in the afternoon they fade
And all the theories they're all justified
There are no arguments at all
In two generations the grandpas at the station
With their bags of dislocation will alight

It's all we ever had
This machine you love to land
And all the plans you planned to plan
Were all you ever planned

Lemon trees
Reading books and squeezing fleas
Check the time
Read the way you read your mind
And oh the lady can't be justified
You might not be here any more
And all the grandpas at the station
With their devils of temptation
Need a ride, they must alight

It's all we ever had
This machine you love to land
And all the plans you planned to plan
Were all you ever planned

about

Metropolitan Walks Sydney, Australia

Metropolitan Walks had a bunch of unadorned pop doodles recorded that he was planning on maybe doing proper later on but one day realised they were already finished and so dropped his debut album.
