El Duende
El Duende!
. . . the dark spirit pervades . . .

mp3 of the day: Lately

New song about mandatory detention, a rather horrible practice that has been a big issue in Oz of late.

Lately

Lately, you seem to be just slightly overtired, and a little wired, And somehow now just a bit less stately

Lately, you see the future, spread out like the sea,
And how it tries to reach you, wanting always to be here with you

Now the crows have come home to roost, and they've brought their own strange brood
And there's little left to do that you ain't done

Across the border, you seem to know just why, we fall into these lines
And everyone gets scared, and the more we stand and stare,
Seems like all the world is out there
Across the border

Lately, you seem to be just quietly killing time, and what's not mine,
As ever, takes a long time to slip your tether

Baby, you haven't really saved me from the curse, and it's worse
For you don't even seem to notice

Now the crows have come home to roost, and they've brought their own strange brood
And there's little left to do that you ain't done

Across the border, you know too well that what hurts someone else won't help you
And everyone gets scared, and the more we stand and stare,
Seems like all the world is out there
Over the water
And everyone gets scared, and the more we stand and stare,
Seems like all the world is out there
Across the border

Lately, you see the future
