about

A song about defeat and what comes after.
From the new EP, "If I Forgive", out 2 October 2020

lyrics

I gave up the gun
I let the bloody waters run
I carved up the space
Wiped the smile off my -
I took down the sword
Killed myself to collect the reward
You like the cut of my jib?
Well, it’s all up for dibs now

Oh my stars! We love plain and simple
Oh my sun! We were born to be gentle

I won the toss
And sold it for the biggest loss
And oh, the weight of the prize
The bullets, the battle cries
I called out a name
And nobody, nobody came
And no, not even I knew
Who I was calling

Oh my stars! We love plain and simple
Oh my sun! We were born to be gentle
Oh my stars! We love plain and simple
Oh my sun! We were born to be gentle

I gave in to it
I let it all be torn to bits
For the fight was the fall
The letting go of it all
And I was amazed
As I lay in a broken daze
At the scope of the sky
The light, the light, the light
