Enormous gratitude is extended to Independent Records for devoting time and energy to no useful purpose, to Chantal for everything and more and to the whole snarling pack of musicians and collaborators who, against their better judgement, have allowed this music to happen.

This track will appear on the forthcoming album 'Head First into Solid Ground'

Track Name: Telescope
You should have seen it coming
As you claim to be so bright
It was bigger than a sun
Much more significant than life
But she couldn't tell you
Not in a concious state of mind
How all these years that start so slowly
They end so short of time

She's been waiting, for you to turn around and face it
She tells you, she's going to leave this stupid planet
Makes claim to a galaxy that is 22 light years from you

Now she's blown your brain
She cautioned you again
Threw those years out the window
When she took the kids without your name
Broke her oath of many colours
Made it all black and white
Now you stare into the sky
From your lonely place
Looking through your telescope
and all you see is empty space

She's been waiting, for you to turn around and face it
She tells you, she's going to leave this stupid planet
Makes claim to a galaxy that is 22 light years from you
