lyrics

if i had known the point of transmission
a friday that felt alright, one tomorrow
what could i bend? not brainwaves or chemicals
facts of existence rarely on show

oh oh oh oh oh oh, radio tower
red light, you blink bright with nothing to find

now you'll find form in free electrons
hit by our memories, oscillate right
my kind of wave, deep in the decimals
a weakening atmosphere dialed at night
signals and sines, some brain waves ghost tentacles
covering distance sorry and slow

oh oh oh oh oh oh, radio tower
red light, you blink bright with nothing to find
scan the night sky, my angled receiver
empty and quiet with stars who have died
oh oh oh oh oh oh, radio tower
why are there shortwaves longer than lives?
