lyrics

Stay silent as a filmstrip
screened in outer space
Watch out for the clip man
the slow crush will keep us in place

Stay steady as a flagpole
planted on the moon
No wind to interrupt us
from our impending doom


You sold your songs
And now they’re featured in a biopic about Shackelton


They were too long
A stretched out throng
Now they will begin the show
A theme song to the ice floes


The affairs were all muddled
and the ventures didn’t take
Heading south for comfort
your last chance to vindicate


Antarctic exploration
misguided and misplaced
The truest unbeliever
told you it’s not a race


You sold your songs
And now they’re featured in a biopic about Shackelton

The tundra’s drawn
like shades at dawn
He becomes a champion
A name to build an age upon

But it’s gone
Yeah it’s gone

You were looking for a secret handshake
But all you got was a wave
