Walk me through the park
and I’ll point out the shining signals from your past
Walk me to the door
Because I’ve drawn every constellation that I know
Walk me through this dark
Because all I have are ancient fables I brought back
From holidays abroad
And things I think of when I’m restless or I’m bored

Here’s my tiny map of Earth, please
Come this far but go no further
This experiment is over now

All that we know
Are childhood stories and the things we learned by wrote
Galaxies unfold
And we hold fast to things as children we are told

This much we agree
The world has many things
But stars and such are out of reach
If only like copernicus
We could rearrange ourselves
And build a new universe

Our love is now
A pulsar star beating discreetly in the dark
This much we have gleaned
From popular science on
Prime time TV

Let us not be a black hole down
which our life and light must pour
This experiment could be much more

Storm the Palace Edinburgh, UK

Radge folk pop from Edinburgh

"Taking their cues from modern classical, left field folk, and stubborn indie songcraft, Storm The Palace vault over genre barriers without looking back."
Clash Music

We also have a bloody excellent remix album: acrerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/snow-stars-and-public-transport-the-remixes
