Sequestered Luminosities

 

Faking it


You go your way I’ll go mine, there’s no need to fake it,
‘cos we’re just hanging around, too comfortable, now,
and why can’t you not keep your head on?
you keep your lies and I will keep mine,
no more moving around making our webs.

Crushed myself under a truck, I’ never felt like that!
I never needed anyone to let me down,
should have minded my own business, but I can’t keep out,
and I will be right there when it all goes down, down, down, down, down down,
it all goes down

And to not slander your name in this way,
always anticipating my bad thoughts,
I don’t need you.

You can say just what you want, but I don’t belong here,
where there’s everything to choose,but I just can’t decide,
which side

And why can’t I not get my head straight?
Oh I’m wishing everything was washed away,
yeah no more no dragging on the ground.

Well I like the way that sounds,
but reality is substantially different I found,
and I’m right back at the start.
Well each and everyday I tear myself apart.
Tonight I feel alright, no no no no no no,
tonight I feel alright, no no no no no no

Easy Tiger


Come on we’ll lift you up this time,
and we will make you wondrous now,
let us guide you to your end,
sit back and enjoy your time with us.

We will write your empty threats,
that will keep the Tigers at bay,
so you can loosen off your ties,
and we won’t wrestle you with fear,
you’ll see

Yeah, ‘cos we are murderous,
we bought our souls for cheap and look at us now, yeah yeah yeah.
Dragging our heals, until the day is done, I don’t mind at all, yeah yeah yeah

‘Cos we wont let you down,
oh how could we,
and we will gather ’round,
why would we leave you in this state,
yeah we wont let you down,
no, no no, so sing to me

The Sunlight in your Eyes


Take a walk to the tide,
and if ever it gets to late,
I would hold your hand,
and sit under the stars.
Build a fire,
talk all night,
and when you fall asleep,
wrap you in my arms,
and let you dream

Either way we were thrown into this world head first,
swallowing everything we had come to love or hate,
blown away by the way that you let me beside you,
and I know, that you love me too

Watching you waking up,
with the sunlight in your eyes,
and a warming smile set upon your lips.
Take a walk to the edge,
where the known meets the unknown,
press your body close,
and understand

Either way we were thrown into this world head first,
swallowing everything we had come to love or hate.
Blown away by the way that you let me beside you,
and I know, that you love me too

And even though my life has gone,
it faded like before,
I could hear the words you said to me,
as I was falling to the floor.
And I would do most anything,
to see you once again,
with the sunlight shining in your eyes,
and your dress falling right to your feet

Empty Pockets


I opened up my eyes today,
to all the hurtful things I say,
if I could just shut my mouth,
things would stop coming out,
that I don’t mean, that I don’t mean

I left you lying on the floor,
with your wounded battered sores,
I stuck my words in like a knife,
and twisted them for dear life,
and I don’t know why,
no I don’t know why

You climbed to your feet and never looked back to check the score,
and I don’t blame you for walking, yeah walking out that door,
but I don’t want to believe in anything I’ve done to you,
and so I empty my pockets of blame from you

Guilt is written on my head,
I cross my heart and go to bed,
and when I get up the next day,
I’ll pretend it’s gone away,
and I don’t miss you,
but I’ll miss you

And now it’s been at least 20 days or more,
and every time I hear a knock I think you’re coming through that door,
and I have lost my belief that you were ever the one to blame,
and I now I’m hanging my head in shame

Autumnal Hymn


Morning light spills into the street,
breathing life into you and me,
it turns the leaves to flame,
casting their gentle light on our frames

Every leaf will make its way from this world,
fall into the fattened earths underworld,
the heaving sigh of their resign to let go,
rivaled by their brightened glow in this world,
in this world

Children fly through leaf covered streets,
kicking up the scent of memories,
coloured ‘chutes flawed in design,
caught in the currents of the divine

Everyone will make his way from this world,
fall into the fattened earths underworld,
the heaving sigh of our resign to let go,
rivaled by our brightened glow in this world,
settle ourselves amoung the God’s of the next world,
leave your shell to be re-curled and made new,
made new

Hanging Noose


I never sink, but I’m always swimming around, just over heads depth,
and I never liked you anyway, you’re such and over-earned bitch.
And I can’t seem to be able to untie this knot and I’m beginning to choke,
and you look at me like I’m not evenly stepped, and that, well that’s the big joke

But don’t twist me, I might just break in a way you did not quite expect,
and don’t ever repeat my sounding joy,
I know you, and you’ll never cope

And you don’t like the way I’m so over and out, but that’s the way that I am,
and I don’t think I’ve ever seen this side of you so evenly tanned

But don’t twist me, I might just break in a way you did not quite expect,
and don’t ever repeat my sounding joy,
I know you, and you’ll never cope

But don’t go too far away from me,
too far to see you again someday,
again to play your fool

And drown me in all of your ecstasy,
‘cos I’m so low,
bleed me and I will be self-assured,
‘cos I’m so low

But don’t go too far away from me,
too far to see you again someday,
again to play your fool.

Again to play your fool

Spanish Encounter


Bottomless pockets sown in your dress, but you think you’re like the rest,
and absolutely no thoughts of your own, as you sit there on your thrown,
under blue skies.

I’d love to wind you up and watch you walk right off the table,
I’d let you fall and catch you at the last moment,
I’d love to see that look upon your face,
just once

And you’ve lived your whole life in the same shoes, princess of the blues,
wrapped up inside your protective pack, well no sleepless night’s you’ve had
…until yet

And you know it’s an inevitable lonely cascade fall,
you know it’s inevitable.
Don’t be like all the rest of them,
you try to put yourself down,
for when it comes to the end

I’d love to wind you up and watch you walk right off the table,
I’d let you fall and catch you at the last moment,
I’d love to see that look upon your face,
just once

We Love you Son


You brought me up to be someone who looks up to the sky,
and dreams of being something great, well even if in disguise.

But I’ve got these Mynor birds they’re twisting ’round my words,
and everything I say ends up sounding quite absurd,
don’t even know in which way to begin,
and so I fain my way, up until this day.

But I thank you for teaching me to look up to the sky,
‘cos I have found something there that I can’t even begin to start!

But I’ve got these Mynor birds they’re twisting ’round my words,
and everything I say ends up sounding quite absurd,
don’t even know in which way to begin,
and so I fain my way,
up until this day,
I hear them say.

We love you son,
you’ve got yourself to blame,
but we love you son,
you’ve got yourself to blame,
but we love you son,
but we’re overrun,
and underfun-ded.

Son let it be said you were always the one,
who was going to take us beyond these skies,
we’re glad you’re still here,
and wish you well upon your way,
and will you come back and see us again
