lyrics

blaster guns
aimed at the sun
crossed eyes and dotted Tees
two-tire swings
deflated water-wings
lightening strikes our stubborn knees

sawdust sprinkling
through cracks in the ceiling
but our toes still point to hell
the summer melts and stretches
holding our hearts from the edges
we shake our savings down the well

and pulling at a transparent rope
twisting a tenner like a telescope
the future gilded by rays of hope

but the yarn still spins
the three witches grin
the mirrors blush and blur
and all at once
I sling my guns
and look at the brew I stir

then I sit in silence
peel back my eyelids
looking around for me
licking shadows
through holes in hand-drawn windows
lodged in the mud of memory

and the pictures pour out from the vaults
eyeballs doing somersaults
and the squeans and spurls spin and waltz
