ON & ON :: LYRICS

Button up your polo,
you’re a winner, boy.
Earn your dinner, boy.
You will miss these times just like an old toy.

Winner.

The figure’s drawn and on and on it goes,
on and on . . .
and something’s gone, but what you don’t quite know,
on and on . . .

Spindly, buckled freeway trees are here
and then they are gone.
Friends you’ve dearly loved they have moved on
and nothing’s really wrong but something’s really wrong.

Winner.

Somewhere it is different, it is fair,
on and on . . .
maybe someday I am headed there,
on and on . . .

On and on and on it goes!

INTRODUCING
ON & ON

INTRODUCING :: ON & ON

From Casey:

“If you haven’t seen the album introduction we sent out yesterday, I suggest checking that out here –> [Pale King :: INTRODUCTION]. It gives a little (necessary) context to what the album is all about.

For the lazy (like me), in a nutshell: this album is about work, which has become such an enormous part of American life—our lives, as a band—that we felt it would be a fun and universally-understood topic to explore in an album.”
