Genre: Indie Rock / Indie Pop / Indie Folk
Description: This song was inspired by a series called Inspector Morse. Housman, a fellow Oxford fellow and a favourite poet of Dexter (author) and Morse and is quoted in the finale. The music was the result of playing with some new additions to my studio -specifically the Chamberlin, the Mellotron, and the Optigan -which offer a sort of kitchy nostalgic and romantic lo-fi texture.

Lyrics:
Ensanguining the skies
How heavily it dies
Into the west away;
Past touch and sight and sound
Not further to be found,
How hopeless under ground
Falls the remorseful day.
To-day I shall be strong,
No more shall yield to wrong,
Shall squander life no more;
Days lost, I know not how,
I shall retrieve them now;
Now I shall keep the vow
I never kept before.
How clear, how lovely bright,
How beautiful to sight
Those beams of morning play;
How heaven laughs out with glee
Where, like a bird set free,
Up from the eastern sea
Soars the delightful day.
