One of Our Submarines is Missing Tonight by 


My favorite Thomas Dolby song:

A hungry heart
To regulate their breathing
One more night
the Winter Boys are freezing in their spam tin
The Baltic moon
Along the northern seaboard
And down below
The Winter Boys are waiting for the storm

Bye-bye empire, empire bye-bye
Shallow water – channel and tide

And I can trace my history
Down a generation to my home
In one of our submarines
One of our submarines

The red light flicker, sonar weak
Air valves hissing open
Half her pressure blown away
Flounder in the ocean
See the Winter Boys
Drinking heavy water from a stone

Bye-bye empire, empire bye-bye
Shallow water – channel and tide
Bye-bye empire, empire bye-bye
Tired illusion drown in the night

And I can trace my history
Down one generation to my home
In one of our submarines
One of our submarines
One of our submarines

One of our submarines is missing tonight
Seems she ran aground on manoeuveres
One of our submarines

    Love this Casey, always found so much inspiration in the retro russian art style, and you’ve nailed it;)

    Thanks, Y’all! I’ve been so bad about checking in here; it’s good to be back.

    @ Shanina – I love your new profile photo! Yep; I’ve loved Russian film and propaganda (was there a difference?) posters since I can remember. Have you ever looked at the Taschen book “Film Posters of the Russian Avant Garde?” Fabulous collection; it’s my go-to bible of such things.
