about

Track 1 from 'The Machine That Made Us' (2017)

lyrics

My own Napoleon met his fate, with a smile on his face in summer time
By all accounts ventured he was running late, for a series of dates with his own lifetime
Bemused by your ambush at his garden gate, his head was twisted by your nonsense rhyme
For I was he when we came to be, and I can't always free all the hostages you take inside of me

And when it goes wrong, I sing my own song
It's a sad song I'll only sing for you
And, when I sing loud, it cuts the noise out
And only you remain, now
As the games end, like an old friend
I call the right one in
Then there's the strange case, that we both make
For keeping the out-takes in

Bye Bye Napoleon, I've boxed the tape, but it's getting late, and I won't make time
To re-run the chase scene, endless one-off takes, none of which make good on the finish line
Send Arthur Wellesley my warm embrace, but I have his author on the other line
For that was me when this came to be, and I can't always free all the hostages you take inside of me

And when it goes wrong, I sing my own song
It's a sad song I'll only sing for you
And, when I sing loud, it cuts the noise out
And only you remain, now
As the games end, like an old friend
I call the right one in
Then there's the strange case, that we both make
For keeping the out-takes in
