The Sound Of Speed

from by Men With Day Jobs



Happy snaps from a terrific Apple Isle trip – complete with Tasmanian Devils, seals, fairy penguins, Tassie friends and their works, mixed-up kid quotes, and the grizzled subterranean wisdom of Dave the Cave Guide. Life changes that took our friends to live there – a move more than one of us are considering following, a bit down the track. S tafford’s hyperactive lead vocal is set against some punchy drums, bubbles of keyboard and exhuberant pings of guitar harmonics.


There are fairies on the sand, standing frozen in the red lights / Devils close at hand - more rabbits in our headlights

As we roar along the road, faster than the sound of speed

There’s a whisper in the caves, many eons in the making / Whiskers in the waves, see the liberties we’re taking

As we race across the bay, faster than the sound of speed

No misunderhearings, it’s a long way down / All at once we’re on shaky ground - better slow down…

There’ll be changes in the yield, deeper than our learning / Destinies unsealed - the tide is slowly turning

We’ll go soaring to the south,faster than the sound of speed…
