SUBURBIA

A perforated sunset rolling on forever where the rooftops meet the sticks
A passing conversation is lost in the reflection of this
And all across the slant roof seas of suburbia
No-one hears you shout
Noise from the unsettled is drowned out by boiling kettles
And no-one hears a sound

You’re just a lonely heart aching, just another glass breaking

Are you scared of getting older? Are you scared of being left all alone?
Your family visit once a week, treat you like a freak, and you wish they’d leave you alone
But in the world that you once knew, there was no neglect
But then your daddy sold you to the mill it’s cause and effect

You’re just an old hand shaking, just another glass breaking

Collapsing in the post office and lying on the ground
The silence seems to suffocate
Will someone call the ambulance

Just a lonely heart aching, just another glass breaking
Just an old hand shaking, just another glass breaking
Just a rich kid faking, just another glass breaking
Just a lonely heart aching, just another glass breaking
