Ben Howard – Far Out Lyrics

It’s abysmal the state of the union
[Verse 5]
And the dogs begin to howl
As they walk through empty mile
Bless the trees did lean in to make a suggestion
Well we know where they all hang
Near the hoodlums and the gangs
Those that read all the books stacked to the ceiling
[Verse 6]
Well they’ve been cutting us down
They’ve been messing us around
And they asked us all to stay asleeping
Treason
Yeah, we call it treason
[Verse 7]
There’s time to rile around
There’s a time to be aware
There’s a time to make everything nice and even
Well he stood in the hall
Feeling good and proud and tall
Found a meaning to a long forgotten secret
I was waking in the bath
For the purpose, for the path
When I heard them on the outside of the district
[Chorus]
Far out
Far out
Far out
Oh so far out
[Verse 8]
Once the violence has begun
We’re together all as one
If we don’t act now it’ll be tomorrow
Well I’ve seen this show before
So I left and closed the door
When I walk into the nearest forest clearing
There was nothing there to see
Just a boy beyond the trees
Picking psilocybin
[Chorus]
Far out
Far out
[Verse 9]
Tell me is there vacancy
Out in the house beyond the trees
I am in the forest of asking
Hold on
I’m asking Play this song
[Verse 1]
Tell me is there vacancy
In the house beyond the green
I’m in the fountain of asking
I’m asking
[Verse 2]
Oh is a diamond in the a make [?]
Everybody smiling on the take
Everybody wheeling around just to make the sun come down
Everybody knows a rain when it comes around
Calling
Clearing
[Verse 3]
Over the top they all cried
By the murder in their eye
Time walked out one Sunday to fill the sky in
Well there was no one to see
Just a boy beyond the trees
Picking psilocybin
[Chorus]
Far out
Far out
Far out
Oh so far out
[Verse 4]
Time to make a new plan
Said the gravedigger man
How am I to make a killing what with all of this living?
