about

Originally titled “Lou Gosset Jnr.”, inspired by the Iron Eagle, and The Able Tasmans’ song Mary Tyler Moore. The story goes: Doug finds Chappy, an Air Force Colonel who is intrigued by the idea of sending in two fighters piloted by himself and Doug, to rescue Doug's father.

lyrics

Lost without a sound and standing on the edge of town, the lights shut off again. Toward the plane in the sky your eyes signaled another long and lost goodbye. Cause there we go again. Allison once spoke and she said we were friends. But the nights were hers and the days were mine so the problems could never work out right. For us, the days were too long with every night another heart to fall upon. Those broken knees skinned to the bone it was just your way to say again we’re all alone. For us... The iron eagles in the ocean like stars were burnt out against the sky. Like lies told straight for a devotion like eyes were cast down and passed by.
