lyrics

I still find no way around
those diplomatic sounds
converting what i feel or do
into something less true
just a funny kind of glue

i see a river up in flames
not for me to tame

apologies so lame
nothing else that i could name
selling your beliefs is so inane
when in comes to "never end"

i see a river up in flames
not for me to tame

poetry just doesnt come around
when maudlin words are bound
by fear of mishaps
chandeliers
wont make a dusky spirit clear

i see a river up in flames
not for me to tame
i see colours on my face
that cannot be quite sane

the corduroy on my last pants
finally found a cheerles end
a faded pattern made by hands
that never knew me well

sputtering out sometimes would be more sound
when once again we choose to show
precisely who we are
i thought we could go far
