Concertina

clouds descending
I’m not policing what you think and dream
I run into your thought from across the room
just another trick
can I weather this

I’ve got a fever above my waist
you got a squeeze box on your knee
I know the truth is in between
the 1st and the 40th drink

concertina
concertina
a chill that bends
this I swear
you’re the fiercest
calm I’ve been in
concertina
concertina
try infrared
this I swear
you’re the fiercest
calm I’ve been in

the soul-quake
happened here in a glass world
particle by particle
she slowly changes
she likes hanging chinese paper cuts
just another fix
can I weather this

I got my fuzz all tipped to play
I got a dub on your landscape
then there’s your policy of trancing
the sauce without the blame

too far too far too far
it could all get way too cheerful

concertina
I know the truth lies in between
the 1st and the 40th drink

clouds descending
