Almost Blue
The Graduation Ceremony (Lonely Astronaut Records)
2011


Playing with your toy soldiers
You don't know what they're for
So you just make lots of noises
Decide who wins the war
Now you're playing with matches
Even though you've been warned
That something evil could happen
You don't care cause you're bored

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In the middle of summer
It's only you and your friends
Each of you tryin' to go under
But hoping it never ends
You finally make it to winter
And all rejoice in the snow
Crawling over each other
There's nowhere else you can go

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue
And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

Played live for the first time in Tourcoing on 2011 May 15th

The song was on a very rare EP called "Bonus Tracks" (around 2002) which was distributed internally among Virgin Records employees. The title of the song was then "Almost New". The song is finally released almost 10 years later !
