about

While we’re recording our new album, we thought we’d release a little something ahead of time for you all to enjoy.

lyrics

Lost, discolored photographs
Of strangers, fancy cocktails in their hands
Their cigarettes had no effect back then

Take the train down to the seaside
Feel your skin slowly roasting in the sun
Before the war turns everything to hell

Let’s go back to the golden ages
The treasured past where nothing changes
The idealised view of a simpler way of life
That never was and never will be ours

Smiling brides or swallowed pride(s)
Funny how the mind sees only what it wants to see
And everyone looks better off in black and white
They all seem better off in black and white

Oh let’s go back to the golden ages
The treasured past where nothing changes
The idealised view of a simpler way of life
Where we could feel more real

Lost discolored photographs
Funny how the city looked so much more inviting then
Sometimes I wonder if we’ll ever get it back
I wonder will we ever get it back
