"Gathering Moss" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Lost capacity
For infinity
You and me are idly
Gathering moss

Fields of industry
Death by misery
You and I are idly
You and me are idly
Gathering moss

False security
Faked insanity
You and I united by
Itemised bills

Kills my sympathy
Builds my agony
You and me are idly
You and I are idly
Gathering moss

But when you see me
I'll be idly sweeping
The dust away
(Dust away)
Look here comes the shore again
And we'll aim there to be merry

You and I are idly
You and I are idly
You and me
Gathering moss
You and me
Gathering moss
You and me are idly

    General CommentOne of the things that makes SFA great is the fact that they have little gems like this all over their albums; tracks you don't necessarily remember particularly, but that are unexpectedly brilliant.

    General CommentGruff commented on this song at a SFA gig. He said it was about being unemployed e.g. sitting around "gathering moss". I could identify with that once!
