I have fallen in love with this quirky ensemble.

There I was, aloft one balmy winters eve. The heat was sweltering, the rain was an incandescent mellow hum on the roof, and the floor was singing songs of hoovers long forgotten. And this was not on a Friday eve.

Nay, it was... one of those strange days that happen between the evil of a Sunday and the reluctance of a Thursday... one of those, days.. so they say.

Any HOO... There I was, it would have been perhaps midnight, well, 2am, maybe.. anything after the witching hour is lost to me in terms of clocks and devices to measure time, I only await the chirping of birds and the protestations of the night fighting the day approaching with animosity in one hand and failure in the other. But I know then, it is time to rest...

Yet upon this fateful winters eve, as I wiped the sweat from my brow, I heard this fascinating thing.. it lured me in and trapped me on the spot - an encumbered soul, witnessing something brilliant.

It was an Elbow.

Well, Elbow... what an uncanny name for this band.

If Johnny Vegas ever met with an angel, he would sing....

I was born with a trust
That didn't survive the white noise of the lies
Oh, the white heat of injustice has taken my eyes
I just wanna get high
I am the great collector
I tally catalog and hold to the light
Forgotten scenes of love
Some of them were mine
All mine
I pick the broken dreams that hang in city center trees
All the love made urgently that gathers in the gutters of your mind
Some of it was mine
All mine
I was born with a trust
That didn't survive the white noise of the lies
Oh, the white heat of injustice has taken my eyes
I just wanna get high
I was born with a trust
That didn't survive the white noise of the lies
Oh, the white heat of injustice has taken my eyes
I just wanna get high
I tried to save the world silly boy by sullen girl with love as a given
Driven by my certainty
That they'd never beat it out of me
But who am I some Blarney Mantovani with a lullaby when the sky is falling in
I believe I'm giving in
Oh, the coldness of space with a suit that could do it
I was born with a trust
That didn't survive the white noise of the lies
Oh, the white heat of injustice has taken my eyes
I just wanna get high
I was born with a trust
That didn't survive the white noise of the lies
Oh, the white heat of injustice has taken my eyes
I just wanna get high...
