about

Written and recorded 2005 for GMB. My first song written on bass.

lyrics

We're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
Encompassed by another land
The sun far from the nadir
It's an old run-down place
With a new renovated soul
We're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
And who knows just what
Has brought us together
A future just waiting
For time to catch up
Yes, we're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
Our eyes are on the future
Our minds are on the present
We took too long
And we're the last to return
We're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
We're condensed like milk
A compressed rebellion
A pretty girl, an old friend
A great acquaintance
We're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
We'll fight the world
From this place right here
So crisp, so smart
A future in the East
We're a perfect square
We're a gang of four
