about

—History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.

(This is the likely title track of the next Baguettes studio album.)

lyrics

Tonight we burn the tapes, make our grand escape
Tonight we break the links, tonight we spill the ink
Tonight we wipe the disk, tonight we asterisk
Tonight it’s all erased, ghosted out, MySpaced

You said you wanted a beautiful forgetting
A universe begetting something new
Isn’t this what you wanted?
Now we’re no longer haunted by what was true

Tonight the magnets hum, tonight the future comes
Tonight we break the toys, we unmaster noise
Tonight we misdirect, tonight we disconnect
Tonight the machine stops, tonight the hammer drops

You said you wanted a beautiful forgetting
A universe begetting something new
Isn’t this what you wanted?
Isn’t this what you wanted?

To unwrite the world, unwrite the world, unwrite the world
Unwrite the world, unwrite the world, unwrite the world
Unwrite the world, unwrite the world

Tonight we unanoint, condense all time to a point
Tonight we make it real, tonight we learn to feel

URL and IRL and we are all together
