SECRET7" - THE MACCABEES, GO, LYRICS

I chose The Maccabees, Go, due to knowing the bands previous music, whilst finding the lyrics quite open in terms of developing a concept for the artwork.

The song Go is their newest single taken from their album 'Given to the Wild'.



The lyrics are as shown below:

Left you there in the sunlight
In the sunshine by the windowsill in the kitchen
In light of what was to come it was not enough

Just like the cardboard that covered
The missing panes and cracks in our bedroom windows
We should have known they wouldn't keep out the cold

It was not enough
It's not enough
And it never was

And they'll call out with a name by which I'd never call you
And we'll grow out when it's time
And the skins we've known no longer fit us

It's not enough and it leaves you tired

See you there in the sunlight
In the sunshine by the windowsill in the kitchen

And they'll call out with a name by which I'd never call you
All things being well still feel it was not enough

The main points/reference points I took from the track are as follows:

- Light
- Sunshine
- Panes -> Window Panes/Panels of Glass

I found that the track had quite a sad, almost eerie tone in some respects, discussing loss and distance and heart ache
