The Festival at the End of the World

Back to Album listing


It seems to be a lifetime
Since we lost our way
Making holes in the water
When we should have been making hay
We were tied in knots and we’d lost the plot
Had nothing left inside
Then a wind sprang from the ether
And took us with the tide

We were “playing the band”
With the moonlight in our eyes
Never took a thing
But we were high, high, high
And no-one even noticed
If the sun rose in the sky
At the Festival at the End of the World
At the Festival at the End of the World

Then the music swirled like a sail unfurled
And carried us far from shore
And its eddies took us places
Where we’d never been before
We didn’t know who was playing what
Didn’t even know who was who
We were right on time, we remembered each line
And our strings knew what to do

We were” playing the band”
With the moonlight in our eyes
Never took a thing
But we were high, high, high
And no-one even noticed
If the sun rose in the sky
At the Festival at the End of the World
At the Festival at the End of the World

Our minds were in a different place
Our bodies didn’t seem to care
Never saw an audience
But everyone was there
And we feel the bass, and we see your face
In the corners of our eyes
Time is flowing sideways
And nothing really dies

Time is flowing sideways
And nothing really dies
It’s the Festival At The End of the World

We were “playing the band”
With the moonlight in our eyes
Never took a thing
But we were high, high, high
And no-one even noticed
If the sun rose in the sky
At the Festival at the End of the World
At the Festival at the End of the World
