about

For Elaine, wherever she is

lyrics

...ah...uhm
if i run, and i always do
to catch the very last into the city
if i run, and i always do
to catch the very last train
in the city

you found the burial
you make the arrangements
then you loved as time passed
then a few pauses on the neural trigger
and you're face to face with what you never intended.

god knows when i'll be back
the red shoes, cinderella on the rag
pub crawls party favors small drugs
small flights of stairs like that
and foremost in our minds is, why?
mum can't see you if you have eyes
and you are so firmly notting hill gate

when she arrives
she arrives late
behind a curtain of hair and skin
thin like emulsion or swedish film
waiting on stitches
life like a witches
words that crease from a lovely raccoon grin

you found the burial
you make the arrangements
then you loved as time passed
then a few pauses on the neural trigger
and you're face to face with what you never intended.
