lyrics

Artists

We are the artists, and there is no doubt
We open doors and throw things out
We are the artists and we do not care
We keep notebooks and pencils in our hair

We are the artists and we go to bed late
We quaff our wine and we smash our plates
We are artists and we tear out our hair
We bite our nails and we live anywhere

La, la, la, la, la, la ... everybody knows

We are crazy and we are having a ball
We jump out of windows, you can hear us fall
We are lazy and we don’t give a damn
Prefering the inner life to a life on the land

We sow flowers and we rant and rave
We paint our faces, we paint in caves
We live on nothing but months and years
And when we go, everybody cheers

La, la, la, la, la, la ... everybody knows

This life’ll be the end of me
Across the ultramarine sea
Out of range, out of sight
Drawn to the edge, poised for flight
Down at heel, hitching a ride
Ballads lying at the roadside
Viridian and cobalt blue
I’ll make it all so new for you
It is of course worth the wait
I’m standing here at the gate
Sun reeling across the sky
And now it must be time to fly
