LONG SUNNY DAYS

I was swimming in sunshine driving on right
A sudden appearance at passenger side
A face made of paper made brown from the light
Knocking on windows
Has left a lifetimes labyrinth of lines on her face
She crackles and smoulders
She can’t stand the pace
It’s a rout not a race
Passers by are immune to the human burning

This place is so cold, could rend the flesh from your bones
Once you see past the long sunny days
There’s a desert of rain and desperation

I once met a man on a pavement
A pavement ever so fine
And the scars on his hands and the weals on his mind
From the ghosts in the engine room
Mark him out as a man of a kind
Who met with an angel with terrible eyes
And a chain on her wrist
It’s a perfect disguise ‘cos
The girl is a bitch

This place is so cold, could rend the flesh from your bones
Once you see past the long sunny days
There’s a desert of rain and desperation

The state will provide you with medical bills
Trade for powder and pills
You don’t need a home if you don’t feel the chill
And home is where the heart is
You lost your free will
To men whose grand purpose is
Shuffling papers, men without feeling
They can’t change your life if your life has no meaning to them
We all smoulder, we can’t stand the pace
It’s a rout not a race it’s a disgrace

This place is so cold, could rend the flesh from your bones
Once you see past the long sunny days
There’s a desert of rain and desperation
