The Navigators - One Line Epitaph

So you say you know just who I am.
But I’m afraid that you don’t understand.
‘Not a line written in your book.. ‘not an angel, and I am not a crook.

You see black and you know just what that means.
You say “no” with so much certainty.
You see a world drawn out on a grid, running from oceans where the buried treasure’s hid.

Don’t squeeze me in to your photograph.
Don’t sum me up to a one line epitaph, skipping phonograph.. a one-trick pony.

Life is simpler when you know just who you are..
til the breakdown comes and you find that you were wrong.
That oppression comes for an extended stay.. stand on the shore and watch your future drift away.

Don’t squeeze me in to your photograph.
Don’t sum me up to a one line epitaph, skipping phonograph.. a one-trick pony.

A one line epitaph, skipping phonograph.. a one-trick pony.

These lyrics are by The Navigators, from One Line Epitaph. Posted at 7:36am on 28 August 2006.

    The line:

    “skipping from a graph”

    should be

    “skipping phonograph”

    a reference to a broken record, monotony, etc.

    Awesome song though.

  2. I’d really wondered about that. And that makes SO much more sense! Thank you Kunkii :)

    My pleasure – you should listen to the River too if you haven’t, a friend introduced me to the Navigators (album: “Glory, Glory”) and it has so many great tracks!
