lyrics

Erupting from the ground sandcastles pierce the sky
Hollow concrete chapels aching to boast their size
Soon there is a city, from the sand and dust
heavy hearts drag scorched feet, they must do what they must
And all throughout the land castles of golden sand
wrinkled and weathered hands adhere to ancient plans
and I
Sit and watch, on
-
Wait for the water
Wait for the water
Under the sandcastles (we must do what we must)
Wait for the water (we must build what we must)
-
Sprawling sand collected, spider legs soaked in tar
too shiny too big too tall it falls, and washes away the
choked cars, ocean waves bring memories
spluttering splattering redemption to peel back the centuries
These pebbles are cast aside, soon they rust
Dissipate evaporate, the water does what it must
and I
Sit and watch on
-
Wait for the water
Under the sandcastles we wait (we must do what we must)
Wait for the water (we must do what we must)

about

M O S A I C Swindon, UK

5 piece art-pop and alternative fusion rock group hailing from Swindon in the UK. A bunch of teenagers striving to create interesting music with nods to both the past and present, with the hope of remaining creative and experimental but not at the expense of accessibility.
