Long forgotten words
All those half finished sentences
Were thinking of a song
Now it don't seem quite so wrong, so wrong

If only for a season
A chance to make it right
A way to change the rules of games
The birds flew awful high

Truck with a wide load
Put us out beside the road
But we don't even mind
All the stars we had inside are gone

But only for the morning
By evening there's new light
By night there's a good chance we'll have
The means to make it right

Some days the days we spend
More like a life
Under the door it came
The way a rodent might

Winding down the road
We will stop in Santiago
Swordfish on the wall
Paper plates, sad music on and on

Been heeding all the warnings
By evening there's new light
Came drifting down the mountain range
The birds flew awful high

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.
