lyrics

I took a knife from the sideboard
I stole some cash you put aside
I gently ran away through winding lanes
I wrote a letter and I hid it behind a shelf
You'll find it years from now
You'll read it and maybe you'll remember

We tried to live as they do
We tried to have a kind of pleasant life
We rented proper thoughts and usual advice
But we got into debts for we weren't hardworking
Those expensive pastimes / those costly commonplaces
Now I have to turn off those useless lights
And watch the night

I miss the years we have wasted
I miss the beauty we've lost
I have to map this slow disaster
I'll dig to the bottom of the history of failure
Before I stop to moan
Before i pull down my watchtower
I have to go down to the sewers
and feel the water

****

A storm in the morning
Puddles on the tracks
Old tire marks
And rubbish left by poachers
Setting out for my hidden recess where i will rest my mind

Swamps by the old gas station
Hungry creatures roam around
Clouds of bugs assault moving flesh
Heaps of rusty scraps
And i mingled with foxes and hedgehogs and lizards
And i got old fast - crawling in the sludge of a mean world
