Jejune 03:25
If not now then when? When it is holding you like never before, If not now then when? When the autumn light turns to fall But what would you say, To fall like the raindrops of May, And where would you go, 'Been running since the day I learnt to tell, These lies, lies like it will all be OK The place where we go when it all gets too much, The place that turns the colours into dust But what would you say, To wake up and it all burn away, And where would you go, I've walked the walk but everythings unknown The light outside the windows is yesterdays, Memory of August in the autumn flames, I'm the place that turns the colours into dust
For Edward 03:33
(Based on Bertold Brecht's 'In Praise of Doubt') I laid her down, And let her weep, I heard her words, And let them sleep, To dust at sunrise, Opened a box, I tried to keep, Closed for the night, Callow youth seas, When secretly my mind, Drowning in view Knives out, Heads shake, I’m thoughtless who never doubts, And thoughtful but never acts The knives are out, My body aches, It’s time to sleep again I’m thoughtless who never acts?
