TORN PADDED CHENILLE

I wonder what’s my motivation / I know I sometimes go too far
I’ve worn the varnish off this bar / My liver’s pickled in a jar
Hearing conversations a million miles from silver spoons
The world keeps passing by as we sit in this room

We are where we revere the real / And the painted smiles peel
To reveal the quiet fairground / Where the paint peels on the steel
Of the rusted old big wheel
I’ll be here / Where the wallpaper peels
And leather’s cracking to reveal / Torn padded chenille

Travelling without moving / Bones are broken, Rings are lost
Words are spoken / Paths are crossed
Names are chosen
Some are coming some are going / Bridges change their colour
Weave in and out of one another / A dance so slow

We are where we revere the real / And the painted smiles peel
To reveal the quiet fairground / Where the paint peels on the steel
Of the rusted old big wheel
I’ll be here / Where the wallpaper peels
And leather’s cracking to reveal / Torn padded chenille
