lyrics

What Where Why How Come

I haven’t seen you for so long
You let your light show fade
You’ve carved a niche out for a crime
And only shards remain

It hurts me see what you’ve become
To see you squawking over scrapes
Just one of many noisy gulls
And ever watchful of your back

And that night we laid out on the grass
And watched the Milky Way
We wondered what where why how come
In a stew and ladled away

I swallow hard and take your hand
And clutch your skin and bone
With gold and jewels you’ve made a grab
To overlay your soul

The conversation stumbles on
It leaves us so so cold
Just motions underneath a mask
Cos it’s the only we know

And that night we laid out on the grass
And watched the Milky Way
We wondered what where why how come
In a stew and ladled away

(indecipherable Joycean genius)

Yes the highs were always cheap
As glib as a telesale
Off the shelf attraction
That’s what you want

And that night we laid out on the grass
And watched the Milky Way
We wondered what where why how come
In a stew and ladled away

And now you’re full of prejudice (anecdotes)
And boring people’s fears (bloated going nowhere)
Of petty squabbles greasy poles (my bile is oh so justified)
And par for the course careers
