The Build-up

Kings Of Convenience

The build-up

Lasted for days

Lasted for weeks

Lasted too long

Our hero withdrew

When there was two

He could not choose one

So there was none

Worn into the vaguely announced

Worn into the vaguely announced

The spinning top made a sound

Like a train across the valley

Fading, oh so quiet

But constant till it passed

Over the ridge into the distances

Written on your ticket

To remind you where to stop

And when to get off
