Heavy Weather

from by Paul Liddell

lyrics

I’ve been hearing / Shouting voices
It makes me wonder / What the point is
Tiny people / Rendered pointless
Trying to leave a mark by spewing out idioms
On into oblivion / Too many opinions

I see people / Trying too hard
Trying to make up / For what they are
Shouting nonsense / Into my head
It’s mental litter of the written word / It makes you seem absurd

Fields of metallic trees carry carcinogenic electricity
Each a recognisable freckle upon a face that I alone can see
So please live, love be free
‘Cause compared to the minds and the memories of the trees
We’re just dust floating upon the breeze
Pollen not enough to cause a sneeze

A quiet rebel putting pieces together
Forever wondering where is the relevance in all this heavy weather?

I am mourning / All the time spent
Charting petty disagreements
A voyeuristic waste of our time
No-one gives a fuck what you think we are here for
Get a fucking grip step away from the keyboard

You did it all just to find some relevance
But your thoughts are like a knocked down tenement
Mansions and slums alike become rubble and dust
Missing teeth / Decay, tarnish and rust
It is the ruins and the dust upon the breeze
It is the smoke in the borrowed air you breathe
It is the echo in the space in your heart
Where the truth is as rare as the tears of a great white shark
