We are The Uncommon Earth. We play good songs. Sometimes they have strange noises.

Biography

The Uncommon Earth live in a maintenance basement where they look after ungrateful doctors all day. To cheer themselves up, in the night they write psychedelic pop/folk songs with themes such as steeplejacks, boats and abandoned fairgrounds. The doctors like things like glockenspiels and melodicas, so they tend to crop up in the music too.

Lyrics

Siren

Written By: The Uncommon Earth

Took off before dawn
A Benzedrine breakfast
I know I will crashland
Like the airship in Lakehurst

CHORUS
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time

I'm at fifteen thousand
As high as an angel
The sky is forever
And fear is a stranger

CHORUS
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time

A choir of sirens
Sing from the ground
They're plotting the vector
Of where I'll be found

Above or below
I don't really care
Cos it's not today
And I'm still in the air

CHORUS
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time

CHORUS
And they make me feel so happy all of the time
And they make me feel so happy all of the time

Happiness Writes White

Written By: The Uncommon Earth

Yellow orange sun
Silence, dust and heat
Slow and safe and calm
Soft and warm and sweet

Arms encircle me
Heavy on my skin
Big deep dark brown eyes
I can breathe him in

CHORUS
In a dream I fall
From walking a tightrope
Can I let him in?
Do I dare to hope?

I hope the fear has gone
And I can try to sleep
Someone I can trust
Someone I can keep

He's sleeping in my bed
His scent caught in my hair
He's in my head
He's going to stay there

CHORUS
Colours in my dream
Like a kaleidoscope
Can I let him in?
Do I dare to hope?
