1.
You haven't come back I'm still waiting I keep calling You haven't showed up Press play on the tape recorder Play it back when the subject is gone No more clothing for big men Gold feathers finished in the storm

Khoisan 05:21
Tape spool moving Turning round Gathers meanings Pins them down Old growth forests Shrinking down Trees are verb forms Leaves are sounds To work To chase To dance This place To go To stay I see

Merciless to memories Numbers taking precedence More fuel in the fuel tank I forget what the limit is Are we feeling crowded now? Thin the ranks of species out This one isn't needed Neither are those others If you are the solution I will make a bigger problem This one isn't needed now Box this all up and throw it out

Coelacanth 06:30
People thought the Coelacanth was dead Whilst he slumbered peacefully On an unknown seabed They took to fishing other fish instead Claimed the bodies of the slain And so them and theirs were fed I've tried but I can't follow everything I can't hope to understand A fraction of what's ever been And what will prove to be the weaker thing, A blessing or this hidden curse That's lain over these events as a king And you think this is simple but it's not You've offered to me truths that I Believe were better left forgot Stubborn my bearing and foolish pride You've offered to me truths that I Believe were better left denied I don't have to stay here, I could go Far away and wherever my legs and boots may roam I still have dignity I'll have you know Forgotten like a Coelacanth, But I'm afraid that's just the way it goes

about

Each of the four tracks is about the extinction of something - a fish, a bird, a language, a microchip.
