about

The second single taken from DCMI's upcoming second album 'I'm Broken, But I'm Fine'

lyrics

You’d better raise the white flag ‘cus we’re not coming back from this
They say we bought it on ourselves, that we got ourselves in this mess
I think we might be headed for mediocrity
We reached for the moon, but we peaked too soon and now we’re falling with gravity

All this talk of defeatism, I never heard it from you
And our mission isn’t over ’til we set foot on the moon
Even when we get there, our story will go on
When we’ve conquered the moon let’s head on for the sun

They say I’m only fooling one person in this town
But everyone’s sick of the same old shtick and the whole thing’s falling down
And nobody can save me, I guess I was born to fail
These politics of the self and my mental health are slowly spiralling down the drain

And all this endless pessimism, it won’t do you any good
And though the whole world still beckons, you’re gonna stay just where you’re stood
Gotta shake of the inaction, it’s not the person that I know
And the moon will stay out of reach if you’re never set to go

Wish I could be the positive man I was before the good times disappeared
Things seemed so much better when Bowie, Prince and Cohen were still here
But I digress this is not about heroes, it’s about the here and now
So what’s the point in starting when you know it isn’t going to end well

All this talk of defeatism, I never heard it from you
And our mission isn’t over ’til we set foot on the moon
Even when we get there, our story will go on
When we’ve conquered the moon let’s head on for the sun
