lyrics

Rivers running out in the night
Torrents fade like fractures of sight
I tap on the faucet
But beds bake bare
I have trouble washing my hair

What’s that ring?
A halo hangs on our horizon
What’s that glow?
“Thought it was a setting sun”
“Oh no, that’s just a helicopter
Tilting down to film the fireworks”

Banksias burning up in the night
Air sticks black, breathing comes tight
It’s so damn hot
I’ve got nothing to wear
Hey, I think I’m starting to care

Ice shelves going bump in the night
Didn’t mean to be impolite
We skull above the rooftops
And dive down to bank
Now we can’t keep driving town tanks

What’s that ring
A halo hangs on our horizon
What’s that glow?
"Thought it was a setting sun"
"Oh no, that’s just a helicopter
Tilting down to film the fireworks"

Hot air rushing quays over seas
Sinking ships, spitting out trees.
Rips through the delta
And the streets run red
Hope somebody’s thinking ahead
