lyrics

The mines today, are lit by screens
That strain our eyes, our wrists and our dreams
Well I’m swiping in, just to let them know
I’m fully booted, I’m ready to go
I don’t know if I’m above or below the line
All I know is I’m here
And there’s a world outside

I’m dressing up on dress down Friday
They’ve got rules, this one’s for me
While the people in the valley wear their casuality
Dressing up on dress down Friday
It’s the only thing to do
To keep my head above the waves upon this rolling sea

At the end of the day, we’ve got to drill down
Got to synchronise and leverage this town
The bottom line is, we’ve got to let you go
We’re moving forward, you’re ready to go
That was supposed to be, the moment when I lost it all
But I turned and I ran, and I ran to my friends
And we ran, and we ran, to the top of the hill
And we sang, and we sang, and we sang

I’m dressing up on dress down Friday
They’ve got rules, this one’s for me
While the people in the valley wear their casuality
Dressing up on dress down Friday
It’s the only thing to do
To keep my head above the waves upon this rolling sea
Of paper, cuts and coffee cups
And all that’s in between
The ETA on everything is now ASAP

Soulful vocals, shimmering guitars, and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of pop hooks will snare even the most jaded listener. ... more
