Sam Burns - Meteoric

from An Intimate Evening by Grade School Records

/

about

Meteoric was written over a number of snowy bus rides through Saskatoon at night, pieced together from ideas that would come in bursts over time. It's about old friendships and burnt bicycles, disasters and hyperbole, endlessly planning escapes. Eddie Keller provides the drums on this track, dark & shoegaze-y in his own immutable style.

lyrics

Tracing a path
In concentric circles
Following you down
Through summers unlasting, mortal

Living for those fleeting days,
Just a halcyon haze
Destructive in creation, no destination
Bicycles torched in the blaze

Was this all such a surprise?
Our Meteoric rise
Has had its time, had it time

Now it comes crashing through the roof
Bearing down on everything that we built anew
Burning bridges like we knew it would do
We won't make it through

Was this all gone by sunrise?
Our adolescent lies
Have had their time, had their time

Now it comes crashing through the roof
Bearing down on everything that we built anew
Burning bridges like we knew it would do
We won't make it through
