lyrics

Stone me if I don't just die
Consumed by all the beauty of this world
A marble of light
dangling in the night sky

Oh wow smudges of green
Floating on a palette of blue sea
A perfect drawn scene
I'm crying like a baby

I know that all you feel is change
I know that it's always the same

From up out here I watch the world a while
Nothing changes as you roll on by
From out here I get a better view
Then all our problems seem so minuscule

Oh my I'm in denial
Living like a spaceman
I don't mind you floating on by
Even though I'm only lonely

I know that all you feel is change
I know that it's always the same
Down there where the cold wind blows all you feel is change
Up here where there's no wind blows it's always the same

From up out here I watch the world a while
Nothing changes as you roll on by
From out here I get a better view
Then all our problems seem so minuscule

Send me photos of the ones I love
Send me fuel and send me fresher blood
I don't need to hear the local news
From up here I got a better view

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
