Farewell Transmission Song Lyrics

The whole place is dark
Every light on this side of the town
Suddenly it all went down
Now we’ll all be brothers of the fossil fire of the sun
Now we will all be sisters of the fossil blood of the moon
Someone must have set us up

*****

Now they’ll be working in the cold grey rock,
Now they’ll be working in the hot mill steam,
Now they’ll be working in the concrete
In the sirens and the silences now all the great set up hearts –
All at once start to beat

*****

After tonight if you don’t want us to be a secret out of the past
I will resurrect it, I’ll have a good go at it
I’ll streak his blood across my beak and dust my feathers with his ashes
I can feel his ghost breathing down my back

*****

I will try and know whatever I try, I will be gone but not forever
I will try and know whatever I try, I will be gone but not forever

*****

The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we’re all supposed to try
There ain’t no end to the sands I’ve been trying to cross
The real truth about it is my kind of life’s no better off
If I’ve got the maps or if I’m lost

*****

We will try and know whatever we try,
We will be gone but not forever
Come on let’s try will try and know whatever we try,
We will be gone but not forever

*****

The real truth about it is there ain’t no end to the desert I’ll cross
I’ve really known that all along

*****

Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall

*****

Long dark blues
Will o the wisp
The big star is falling
Through the static and distance
A farewell transmission
Listen

Farewell Transmission Song Chords


The whole place is dark
Every light on this side of the town
Suddenly it all went down
Now we’ll all be brothers of
The fossil fire of the sun
Now we will all be sisters of
The fossil glow of the moon

Someone must have set ’em up
Now they’ll be working in the cold gray rock
Now they’ll be working in the hot mill steam
Now they’ll be working in the concrete
In the sirens and the silences now
All that breaks it apart
All at once, it’ll start to be

After tonight if you don’t want this to be
A secret out of the past
I will resurrect it, I’ll have a good go at it
I’ll streak his blood across my beak
Dust my feathers with his ash
Feel his ghost breathing down my neck

I will try, oh whatever I try
I will be gone, but not forever
I will try, oh whatever I try
I will be gone, but not forever

The real truth about it is
No one gets it right
The real truth about it is
We’re all supposed to try

There ain’t no end to the sands I been trying to cross
The real truth about it is
My cargo line’s no better off
It’s got the map, for if it’s lost

We will try, whatever we try
We will be gone, but not forever
Come on, let’s try, whatever we try
We will be gone, but not forever

The real truth about it is
There ain’t no end to the desert I’ll cross
I’ve really known it all along


Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon it’s jaws

Must be the big star about to fall


Long dark blues
Will-o’-the-wisp
The big star is falling
Through the static and distance
A farewell transmission
