"Telescope" as written by Paul Anthony Dempsey, Clint Wesley Hyndman and Toby Ralph....
can't place attachment
to such a contraption
at such an early hour
in such a desperate state
i won't rest on promises
or guarantees or contracts
that don't lend any power
or influence to fate
this device may make
the vulnerable visible
and the complex simple
blast delusions of grandeur
out of the sky
but the result is a sleep on the floor
with a bottle of wine
and i, and i, and i
thinks he's probably not as clever as he thinks he is
five pm, bright idea, sitting on the fence like a schoolboy waiting
for his father to come home
sitting on that plane getting cheated out of thursday
and all because of the laws about time and space
across the aisle his tie wrapped round his neck
arms wrapped round a briefcase
like it's something or someone more important
and all the excitement
you can see the comet from here
you can see anything you wanna see
magnified 500 times
i only wanna see you
but there's a comet blocking my view
you know we're probably not as clever as we think we are
five pm, bright idea, sitting on the fence like a schoolboy waiting
for his father to come home
he must have fallen asleep on the train
must have missed his stop
i know you and you know me
but i've got a telescope now and it's all that i need
it's all that i need (x2)
you're all that i need
all that i need
five pm, bright idea, sitting on the fence like a schoolboy waiting
for his father to come home
he must have fallen asleep on the train
must have missed his stop
i know you and you know me
but i've got a telescope now and it's all that i need
it's all that i need (x2)
i can see
you're all that i need
all that i need
