lyrics

somewhere around here our language came to die
and i'd like to say i love you but i'm too scared to try
and tho we might forget
that endless internet
will save all the things that go missing from our heads
all those things we never really said

there's a road running through our grandparents' living room
the cornerstones of that seaside home will be worn to gravel soon
let erosion do its work
come back to earth
while up in crow's nest we're whalewatching in the West
three whole days and still we've not been blessed

now that archipelago shrinks to an ellipse
all those lost kingdoms dissolve into the mist
but through my wind-stung tears
i see it's still a bumper year
all those pale clouded yellows
blown off course on the whale road
waiting for the gales to mellow
and we live for the tale to tell
so ...
