about

Track 4 from 'The Machine That Made Us' (2017)

lyrics

It came on Tuesday when harmonic dreams had meaning
By Wednesday night the sense had crept away
I always see you as a young man as I read them
I wrote that down so some part of you remained

I keep his words and I eat them when I need them
They fill the space when I have nothing left to say
I have no shape, these scribblings that surround me secure the 'heads
Though the frame shrinks by the day

And so I wrote sat on stone steps in the harbour
Not fully grown, though it seems like yesterday

In the beginning there was hope
And all the world was mine
A fluttering palace of flax and rope
And all the world was mine
In the beginning the figurehead spoke
And all the world was mine
A chart with a line scribed bold, unbroken, and all the world is mine
In the beginning you helmed the role
And all the world was mine
In the beginning there was hope
And all the world was my design

I keep his words and I eat them when I need them
They fill the space - what a stupid thing to say

All my dreams are loving angels coming here in such disguise
