"UFOs" as written by Tim Middleton and Bryon Mccane....
Have you heard the news from outer space?
Seems that somewhere in the ancient dunes
Of silver moons like giant spoons
Lie dusty tombs
Of martian men
In Uboat pens
And they will come to kill us all


Because our plastic factories
And our catastrophic theories are all we have
We live our lives from paper bags
And I know better than you know
I'd kill you cause you drive to slow
Aggressive instincts will do us in
Just give us the chance for us to prove it ourselves


Don't you know that all machines sink?



So we laid back and we watched space revolve
With bodies of astronauts long cold
Blinking like lonely satellites
Where we left vapour trails
Through cotton skies
Come on let's scratch the heavens one last time
Cause we're all sinking in the sunshine
And though you'd love to stay
Well you said you must be on your way
To where the rainbows and ufos
Fall ten at a time
In a shower of glitter and gold


We'll all be waiting for you here....

    General CommentWow, I can't believe nobody's even commented on this band yet!

    This song is absolutely beautiful. I think the lyrics are about how fascinated man is with outer space and the whole extraterrestrial world. The narrator is tired of humanity being bottled up and hurting each other, all due to being trapped on earth. All we can do is watch space and dream that there's something out there, and dream about escaping.

    Anyway, that's my interpretation. This is an amazing song, and an amazing band. It's only a matter of time before they get the attention they truly deserve.

    General CommentThe lyrics are missing a line that sounds like "Don't you know our bodies are electric?".

    lovely song! I dig the fantasy vibes, and the tension against cold reality (Don't you know that all machines sink?) both in this song and the whole album.
