Egg and Soldiers

This song is by Cosmo Sheldrake and appears on the album The Much Much How How and I (2018).

I was looking over at my shoulder
Only thinking of the short term
But time was looking back at me
Every day I eat an egg and soldier
Then I sit a little longer
On a blanket made for three

Swap cow for bean
And grow a stalk
To tangle with the clouds
Plant poems in the barren ground
Blow doldrums round and round

Cut the brambles down
Search for heaven underground
It was lost but now its found
For we drank the ocean
We'll play while Venice drowns
Submarines won't save us now
We climbed a hill but then fell down
We climbed a hill but then fell down
We climbed a hill but then fell down

I was looking over at my shoulder
Only thinking of the short term
But time was looking back at me
Every day I eat an egg and soldier
Then I sit a little longer
On a blanket made for three

Swap cow for bean
And grow a stalk to tangle with the clouds
Plant poems in the barren ground
Blow doldrums round and round

All hail Tom Thumb
What's done is done
You'll never find the answer
Till its gone
