Oh Atlas could not understand
The world was so much smaller than
The one he used to hold before
But the weight it brought him to the floor
As you watched him struggle to his feet
You took photos capturing his defeat
And messaged them to all your friends
And we all laughed at his expense

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

Oh come my love and swim with me
Out in this vast Binary Sea
Zeros and ones patterns appear
They'll prove to all that we were here
For if there is no document
We cannot build our monument
So look into the lens and I'll
Make sure this moment never dies

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

Oh Atlas could not stay engaged
Was more distracted every day
You slowly fell into disarray
Just trying to think of something to say
For if there is no document
There cannot be a monument
So lean in close or lend an ear
There's something brilliant bound to happen here

longest 4 minutes of 2016!
could not wait for this to end
As a long time DCFC fan, all I can say is:  EXCRUCIATING.  They have finally jumped the shark, just like once great bands like The Church and Coldplay and Cracker and so many others with a shelf life.  I guess that is what separates the Good from the Great.
It always reminds me of:  "Pigs" - Pink Floyd Animals album

I'm pretty sure they included those elements on purpose - it's not like any of that happened by mistake and no one else noticed.  The question is though: do you like the song?

Wish they hadn't taken their name from Bonzos song on Magical Mystery Your..   BUT this is fine.{#Bananajam}

My daughter perked up in the other room when she heard this. She thought it was Sleepwalkers by They Might Be Giants.
Sounds sad and depressing.

Thought it was 'Private Universe' until I recognized the DCfC guy singing.
Play it again Sam!
Big DCFC fan here, but this album does not touch me like all the others before ... I hope this will grow on me. Right now it's a 7.

Sounds very sixties.
