about

"I wrote this song only minutes after hearing Frank Ocean perform 'Bad Religion' on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It was the first time in a long time that I was genuinely moved by a new song by a relatively new artist. The chords came together pretty quickly, but I distinctly remember wanting to write a song that wasn't about, love or emotions. I wanted a story with character. I'm lazy with lyrics but I felt the need to write something which was unusual. I got about half way through writing it, felt exhausted and almost left it where it was, but I pushed through and had the song done in an hour or so."- Kog

lyrics

Honour
(K.Ravindan)

You sit quietly
With a bunch of lemmings on your knee
In your cave there’s a window
Where the Himalayan sun won’t rest until you sleep

You like to play this game
You got seven little pills to ease away the pain
But one is laced, with just enough cyanide to blow you back to earth again

Where do you go if you’ve just been waiting?
Waiting to be loved by a crazy stage man
Why’d I have to start this stupid plan?

Sweep them away
Bring me a new line of dancers
I’ve got a plan this time, don’t mess with me

Where do you go if you’ve just been waiting?
Waiting to be loved by my mother’s saviour
Why’d I have to start this stupid plan?

I’m breaking up this town
I wanna know, can I leave with honour?
Reel it in
I don’t wanna loose my head
I wanna know, can I leave with honour?
Lick it up
I don’t wanna lick my wounds
I wanna know, can I leave with honour?
