"Go On Drone" as written by and Tony Martin Mark Nesler....
Sarah slides up to the bar and orders me
The strongest thing this side of armor street
She's got the saddest eyes I've ever seen
When she says
Oh baby were you ever meant to be
Well maybe
Now sexy don't get so excited
You're so much cuter when you try to fight it
You're filling up the room with that terrible gloom
And the mere thought of a turnaround is bring the whole place down
Stop the press
Who is that mess
Go on drone
We've never been so impressed
Go on drone
Stay home
Afraid of the phone and famously alone
Go on drone
True love might be fun for some
But we know that it's just too tough
Is there the proper power left to hold us in
So we'd stay golden
So I'm always working on new grand ways to avoid
Doing any work on everything
That could amount to anything
The poor poor cat
Don't lie like that
In regret's bed
In beads of sweat
Blurry head
Ruby red
Not yet deceased
Undead instead
Hardly home de chez rainbow
Je ne sais quai
Je taime cell phone
We know you know how
Don't you drone
We know you know
Stop the press
Who is that mess
Go on drone
We've never been so impressed
Go on drone
Stay home
Afraid of the phone and famously alone
Go on drone
We are all done now

    General Commentthis has such a beautifull and soft melody.

    i have the impression that this is about having a "closure" conversation with your ex. being at the bar and just realizing how sad everything is. it explores the painfull elements of those first few weeks of being single again; insomnia, depression, seclusion, and just overwhelming apathy. just the usual breakup emotions and coelesced inscecerity of it all.

    this is as good as morrissey-esque can get. bob nanna's poetry is such a gift.

    General CommentGood call, kenobi. I think you pretty much nailed it. Definitely seems like it's about an ex the singer's still friends with and sees socially semi-regularly. Possibly an unrequited love - maybe the singer had confessed to having feelings for this 'Sarah' and the feeling wasn't mutual or she's just a really close friend he can let off steam with.

    Definitely has a sense of longing and frustration, finished off with a sense of resignation and futility. Almost seems like a cat-and-mouse sort of setup where the girl is tormenting the singer by admiring how cute he is when he tries to fight off his affections.

    The song itself is amazing. Right around the 3 minute mark, the beauty of its sonic simplicity just ends perfectly. Amazing way to end the album. Hats off to Bob Nanna and company. Pity more people haven't taken notice of the late great Hey Mercedes.

    General Commentquai is actually quoi and Taime should be t'aime. but mostly, my absolute favorite thing is the first few lines, especially "the strongest thing this side of armor street" hard liquor...
