If trivia seems the main concern
And uncertainty sets the heart to burn
And the liquid's stale in the pipes of brain
So your dreams of cream turn sour again
Call for the oblong boys
See them on their way and long gone

Only when you're lonely you count the seeds you've sown
Suspicion is a purple worm gnawing at your bones
Call for the oblong boys
Saw us on our way, for so long

A sweet crop has failed, and now
A rock of angst has blunt the plough
And the cat claws a hex on the bark of your tree
So your silver leaves taste of tin, to me
Call for the oblong boys
See them on their way and long gone
Call for the oblong boys
Do no wrong
Call for the oblong boys
Saw us on our way, for so long
