about

My bandmates were having a smoke. I stayed on my place and played around - and there was "Like Ants". It's february after all, you can't miss an occasion to write a song.

The lyrics were scribbled down in a hurry and are not well thought out. It's just a little sketch, but when I had this delay sound I went for a psychedelic feel. In my own music I often miss the experimental freakiness for which I admire people like The Flaming Lips or Blur (13 era). So I recorded a vocal take through my guitar amp, sending it through my pedal board. Just because.

lyrics

LYRICS:

We're one in many
alone we're just small
We live together
like ants
like ants
like ants
we soldier on

We're born to work hard
We're soldiering on
We're so replaceable
like ants
like ants
like ants
we go on and on

We don't know the reason
we hatch, work and die
what does it matter
what does it matter
like ants
like ants
like ants
we go on and on
