about

We want people to find joy with this song. The last 45 seconds render it unplayable for 99.9% of radio/tv. We purposely did not record a media-friendly version. We are not a political band. We are 4 boys born and raised in Northern Ireland. Many of our friends come from similar backgrounds yet due to some powerful opinions, this country does now allow said friends to marry because of their sexuality. This song was written in solidarity with these friends. We are not a political band. This is not a Brexit bandwagon. We still wear banana suits and skate shoes. We do not want to tell people how to vote. We want to support our friends. We hope people find joy with this song.

lyrics

All our friends are skipping town
It’s only you and me
The last ones hanging around
The last leaves on a tree
Beside the Irish sea

My best friend moved to Dublin to escape his discontent
He said he likes the city though he pays 4 times the rent
Got himself a husband and place beside The Bernard Shaw
if he stayed in Northern Ireland he’d be breaking a civil law

All our friends are skipping town
It’s only you and me
The last ones hanging around
The last leaves on a tree
Fuck the DUP
