1. Strange Blue

From the recording Decade in Spin


When the static turns to silence
The children are asleep and the drunks are chasing flames around the park
The trees all wave a breeze and an evening cup of tea
While the neighbours worship a strange blue in the dark

And on the news tonight
Are we out of our minds?

Ten thousand things on which we all agree
May we hang our hats and jackets in the hall
Let the stone roll down the hill, the avalanche cascade
May we find ourselves at the bottom of it all

Beyond the moon tonight
There are stars in the sky
