PLANETS AWAY

We are familiar
We are at odds
We’re strung together like the stars

I am your Matthew
Polly sits by
You’re not unnoticed out of sight

I have been dreaming and aloof
I would be happy, and you
But you’re not alive here
Home is planets away
I would be happy, and you

Spiralling upward
Waving goodbye
Had we’ve kept it eye to eye

It’s been peculiar and askew
I would be happy, and you
(But) you’re not allowed here
Home is planets away
I would be happy, and you.

SLEIGHT OF HAND

In the day the sun she’ll come for me,
Oh it’s just her sleight of hand
And we’ll lay in her disregard,
And turn our stomachs inside out
To write with entrails on the ground
Mmm

You will say her warmth is comforting,
Oh its just her sleight of hand
But her rays given without mind,
Turn us old before our time
We’re watered down like Jesus’ wine
Mmm

In a way we trace her solar path
Oh its just her sleight of hand
Like a stray, with no celestial home
We’re flying blind by brail of stone
And space debris as trusted friends
Mmm

In the night, there in moonlit hills
Send me into darkened skies
Wear a smile pale upon your face
Should the sun rise in my place
So it must, her sleight of hand
Mmm
