lyrics

THE HYPNOTIC STAND-BY (FOR BILL & FRANKIE)

WE STRING THE HARBOUR LIGHTS
IN SHAPES SUGGESTING HEAVEN
THE MOST UNCERTAIN PLACE TO BE
KNOCK ON EFFECT OF SHIPWRECK
LIE TO CLOSE TO JETTY GHOSTS
REPLACE THE POEM WITH THE SEA

SKETCHES OF ROBERT WYATT’S SMILING FACE
DECORATE SKIES, IMPLIES
MIST ON THE OUTSTRETCHED MEADOW BY YOUR HOME
KEEPING THE CHORDS INSIDE

WE CLOSED STRIATIONS
WITH THE SOLAR SYSTEM’S ENERGY
AND VOLUME’S COMPROMISED BY US
YOU CLIMB SEDATION
LIKE A MOUNTAIN GULL WITH FEATHER’S GREY
AND FALL DOEN INTRAVENOUS

TERMINAL FLIGHTS AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTD
REVIVE THE PATTERN WITH A BRUSH
JADE GREEN ON CANVAS SCREEN DECLARES A WAR ON RAIN
WE’LL LOSE OUR PIGMENTS IF WE MUST
