lyrics

We started out as a small-time band
Thrashing out chords on a cheap guitar
With nothing more than a few songs planned
We had our sights set firmly on the stars

Our first attempt distilled ambition
Into an Archive's Remnant parts
We gigged and wrote, self-styled musicians
That's where the down-turn of this story starts

We got into this with the music in mind
And a vision to keep us on track
But circumstances conspired against us
And painted that vision black

Locked on a crash course
We continued on blindly
Resigning ourselves to our fate
We felt the full force
Of our reckless abandon
But we left our atonement too late
We suffered hard times
And then acted surprised
When we dared our ambition to die
No escape this time
As we wrecked on the rocks
Lured by the siren's cry

Our new plans hit adversity
As our commitments clashed with choice
Southampton University
Claimed our guitarist and musical voice

Absence made things complicated
A singer still eluded us
Undinal Songs disintegrated
The start of our indefinite hiatus

We got into this with the music in mind
And a vision to keep us on track
But circumstances conspired against us
And painted that vision black

Locked on a crash course
We continued on blindly
Resigning ourselves to our fate
We felt the full force
Of our reckless abandon
But we left our atonement too late
We suffered hard times
And then acted surprised
When we dared our ambition to die
No escape this time
As we wrecked on the rocks
Lured by the siren's cry
