A synth-pop track inspired by my love of classic 80s tracks. A song about escapism,love and self-doubt.


FISH: The Vinylheads

Verse 1:
You wanna save the country
While the world subsides
I dreamt about an Old Age Hippy
So I dug his old advice
I Met a girl like Princess Leia
She splashed about with me
She showed me all around a kinder world
And the calmness of the sea

A Festival of Urchins
Like the Palace of Versailles
Where the Cheese and Toast Religion boasts
Could never blow our mind
Everything was made for love
Like a California Dream
My heart was David Niven
And now it’s Steve Mc Queen

I wish I wish I was a fish
I’d swim about your eyes
I’d Drift up to your groove Ocean
Under covers of Night
I’d Dive into the Edges
Where the Tides will greet the rain
I’d fool them all and god almighty
The World won’t see my shame

Verse 2:
Cover me Poseidon and may Neptune say my name
Cos pretty Petrol soaks my skin thru and the plastic hurts my brain
And All The Mermaids that I long for
Are Just sinking thru the Swell
Are all The Poets- See Utopia
When Utopia is Hell

A Momentary reflection
There’s a little place I go
It’s a 100 miles from anyplace Columbus didn’t know
So sad I kiss fallen Rainbows
Colours pass me by
Let Me In Oh Let’s Begin
Oh Let’s Get Into Life


Repeat till end
(I’m)Coming Up For Air Now
Memories are Chill
I’d Rather stay beneath the Sea
Where the Heart beats Still
