the sea is a good place to think about the future

I grabbed hold of her wrist and my hand closed from tip to tip
I said “you’ve taken the diet too far
you have got to let it slip”
But she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again.
I ask her to speak French and then I need her to translate
I get the feeling she makes the meaning more significant.
She was always far too pretty for me to believe in a single word she said
believe a word she said.

A good place to think of the future is when you are sat at the Sea, with the salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier. You may look down at your models feet and wish that you’d just float away.

And the weather here is overcast, and the Sea is the same shade of grey, So the landscape before you looks just like the edge of the world, but to the left side and your right side, either way is a crazy golf course.

The sea is a good place to think about the future.

The Sea Is A Good Place To Think O The Future
  • The Sea Is A Good Place To Think O The Future
  • Los Campesinos!
  • Romance Is Boring
Play

And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course

The Sea is a Good Place to Think About the Future, Los Campesinos!

I’ll post a cheerier song eventually… But I was out for a walk today.  It was a bit overcast, but I think the coastline is prettiest that way.  Much more–hm,– enchanting.

The Sea Is A Good Place To Think O The Future
  • The Sea Is A Good Place To Think O The Future
  • Los Campesinos
  • Romance Is Boring
Play

And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
Five hundred behind,
A thousand years in perfect symmetry
A thousand years no getting rid of me
A thousand years in perfect symmetry.

Just played this on turntable.fm, but I forgot how much I loved this song so I thought I’d share it on tumblr too.

Los Campesinos! - The Sea is a Good Place to Think About the Future

Lovely, stripped down version of this stunner from their 2010 album, Romance is Boring.

‘And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
Five hundred behind,
A thousand years in perfect symmetry
A thousand years no getting rid of me’

one of my all time favorite songs, been listening to it on repeat at the moment

Los Campesinos! - The Sea Is a Good Place to Think About the Future

I grabbed hold of her wrist and my hand closed from tip to tip
I said “you’ve taken the diet too far
you have got to let it slip”
But she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again
she’s not eating again.
I ask her to speak French and then I need her to translate
I get the feeling she makes the meaning more significant.
She was always far too pretty for me to believe in a single word she said
believe a word she said.
At fourteen her mother died in a routine operation
from allergic reaction to a general anesthetic.
She spent the rest of her teens experimenting with prescriptions
in a futile attempt to know more than the doctors.
She said one day to leave her
sand up to her shoulders waiting for the tide
to drag her to the ocean
to another sea’s shore.
This thing hurts like hell
but what did you expect?

And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
Five hundred behind
A thousand years in perfect symmetry

Best known left wrist right finger
through all the Southern States
on every video games machine they call her triple A.
There were racists on the radio trying to give up smoking
the chat show host
he joked “you have to wait for the government program”.
You talk about your politics
and I wonder if you could be one of them
but you could never kiss a Tory boy without wanting to cut off your tongue again.
A good place to look to the future is when you are sat at the sea
with the salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier
you may look down at your model’s feet and wish that you’d just float away
and the weather here is overcast and the sea is the same shade of grey
so the landscape before you looks just like the edge of the world
but to the left side and the right side
either way is a crazy golf course.
The sea is a good place to think of the future.

And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
Five hundred behind
A thousand years in perfect symmetry
A thousand years no getting rid of me
A thousand years in perfect symmetry.
