01 Mrs Caligari’s Lighter 

 

She’d been blushing very slightly

Wanting to light a cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

She went to a few parties

Yes- she said

Wanting to light a cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

She kept remembering that smile

Wanting to light a cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

She kept pretending to everyone

Wanting to light a cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

She moved silently suddenly realising

She’d lit her a cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

She was shivering her eyes reflecting

The light of her cigarette

From Mrs Caligari’s lighter

 

02 Doris

 

Is language a virus from outer space?

If so – who controls it?

Is it part of a plan?

Is it growing outside us? 

 

03 The Comforter

 

Sometime in the future mile

Reconnection was important

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

Catenations interconnections

Meaningful directions

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

I wish I could forget you

I wish I could forget you

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

Coffee machines and sensual eyes

Dating me but me

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

In the rainbow waves

Of all it’s sounding

Around me imagination

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

I wish I could forget you

I wish I could forget you

I wish I could forget you

Find me in those canvas dreams the comforter

 

 

04 Love is Just a Torrent ( melodrama )

 

Love is just a torrent

Touching the veins of your mind

Crushing the sound of your life

Spiking the dark in your eyes

Love is just a torrent

Inside this intimate daydream

Feelings grow distant and long 

And I keep remembering how

That fatal distraction

Whip lashed my shimmering song

Love is just a torrent

 

05 Funny Eyes

 

Watching you

You sombre

You calculating with that smile and fireful eyes

That could connect eternity

Frightful moment though

When out in the cold wind

It was gone it was gone

Hang on

To those warm sounds

Finding their way

Out of your heart

Hang on

To those sad dreams

Finding their way

Fixing their imagineness of today

Come with me

Through the doors of perception

Can you keep up with us?

 

06  You Just don’t Get It

 

Talk me through it

In the rain cold rain

Holes busted

In the rain cold rain

Derailed

No express

In the rain cold rain

More future

In the rain cold rain

More Pain

You Just don’t get it Y

Stagnation

In the rain cold rain

Under roots

In the rain cold rain

Anhydrous

In the rain cold rain

Long tracks

You Just don’t get it

Crossing over

In the rain cold rain

Dislocation

In the rain cold rain

Pleading you

Just don’t get it

 

07 It’s Friday Night you Know

 

It’s Friday night you know

I’m walking up to town

I’m meeting Frankenstein

I hold his slender hand

I call on him to stay

Please stay with me

Unwish my dreaming head

It’s Friday night you know

I hold his slender hand

 

 

08 Your Have to Watch you Know

 

After travelling

Through 24 feet of snow

You have to watch you know

And this is dracula !

 

09 How Long Before the Machine Rusts

 

Sitting with my back to the view

Checking out the altitude

Can we try for a landing?

I think in her condition it would be rather dangerous

How long before the machine rusts?

Can we try for a landing?

I think in her condition it would be rather dangerous

But as I watch the snow falling

I realised I had to forget

Can we try for a landing?

I think in her condition it would be rather dangerous

How long before the machine rusts?

 

10 So Long

 

Seeing thru mirrors and roses

Feeling your time space and love

So long- I could stay here forever

So long

There’s so much I’d like to say to you

But it doesn’t really seem to be real anymore

Tearing at passion inside me

Drowning in liquified glass

So long I could stay here forever So long

There’s so much I’d like to say to you

But it doesn’t really seem to be real anymore

Weeping and laughing together

Curled into breezes and cries

So long- I could stay here forever

So long

Leaving your murdered emotions

Racing for light heart instead

Recycling sadistic behaviours

Spill on the rocks and again

So long- I could stay here forever

So long
