We Do These Things

Track 1 from the album Letters to Cyril Connolly.

So we made it to the pad Wednesday morning
We could make some history or we'll die
I can see my family on the horizon
Counting down until they tell us to fly
We do these things
Not because they are easy
But because they are hard
Looking back we see a jewel in the darkness
Everything that ever happened, happened there
We're the only people with this understanding
Better make it back okay so we can share
Take the Eagle out to play on the Monday
It's so ugly when you see it up close
Walter Cronkite can't believe what he's seeing
And the baseball game has stopped to applaud

    another amazing song. its gtr intro sounds like FELT, one of my brit favorite bands of 80's.
    Hey dude, all my colleagues who are fans of Smiths and Mozz love your music too. Even here in Brazil you are becoming well-known. I will keep spreading your work. congrats.

    Your music is so neat and yet so rich and mysterious. Those Rick sounds are amazingly well crafted like a boucing symphony filling up each and every frequency. I hear the touch of Partridge here and there in the melody and that Marr's touch, all in a new, truely innovative sound which is ALL YOURS. Good job, mates. Mauro De Giorgi, Italy -18/06/2010
