Title track from Loquat's third full-length album, We Could Be Arsonists, released in 2012 on Nacional Records.

lyrics

It’s wind over wind, and it’s cold upon dark. But outside the door, the weather is clear and unfailing. None of us really need the medication. I don’t want any other revelations. But we have to stay awake because the stakes are high. We have to stay awake because the stakes are high. We could be arsonists with the impetus.
We could be infamous if it were effortless. We could be mobsters if we were in the family. We could be crime lords if we got out of bed today. Mechanical walls are squeezing us in. But outside the room, the space goes on forever. None of us really need the medication. I don’t want any other revelations. So we have to make our escape because the stakes are high. We have to make our escape because the stakes are high. We could be arsonists with the impetus. We could be infamous if it were effortless. We could be mobsters if we were in the family. We could be crime lords if we got out of bed today. Can’t you get up, get up with me? Strike a match and start it slowly. Watch the fire spread swiftly everywhere we look.
