Taken from the forthcoming full-length 'The only thing I want is to know what I want'


Sirens pierce the night sky
Way overhead the waves arrive
Enemies incendiaries start to scream
Will we make it through tonight alive?
Everyone clambers for shelter,
but the rain is going to come sooner or later
this town falls down, burned to the ground
We watch on through the embers.

Lights go out.
Where are you now?
Can we come out?
Will we get through this Blackout?

Under a full moon a river of fire
the sky is a dissonant cats choir
the remnants of the tenements and all of their tennants
Who never got to say goodbye.
Through the darkness, the end in sight
a town left destroyed overnight
take cover, then discover we will never recover
the dust never settled here

Lights go out.
Where are you now?
Can we come out?
Will we get though this Blackout?
