Two brothers, one is living in the red
The other sees but he don’t understand
It’s not like you’re on vacation
Just need rehabilitation

He’s not quite sinking but he’s all right
You’re out there swimming and it’s high tide
He’s working just to earn the paper
You swear there’s time to grow up later

In the old days you could make do
As a prophet or a recluse
But now this world I needs ad men
And soldiers
That’s what happens when you get older

And there’s no going back now
Just get along with it or back down
There’s always someone just behind you
Willing to step up and continue
With stronger hands and quicker thinking
And that’s how the Earth’s reborn each day
Seeds and skulls trading graves.

"2 a.m. Orchestra has delivered an album that is worthy of superlatives. Impermanence deftly translates the chaos and elation of life, into uplifting and well-arranged rock songs - songs fused with eclecticism, vigour and exuberance."
(Get Frank)
