lyrics

As I walk through the door to your room
The walls are flooded with pictures I sold you
Of stony faced rebels with dinosaur bones,
Peering out over their frames.

I can't help but notice their eyes.
History book drawings, flat faced and fettered,
Icons reduced to a high margin sale,
Printed out thousands of times.

I move to sit down on your bed,
Wading through soft sticky incense of images.
You beckon me in with your Mona Lisa smile,
The one I've seen selling me lies.

You go lock the door and stand quiet,
Finding such comfort in familiar faces
You look to the pictures with a deafening awe
And then the whole world disappears

-------------

And there is nothing
Except the fading
Aeroplane trails of time.

I am standing
Behind the counter
Watching you turn out the light.
I say goodnight.

-------------

As you walk through the door to my room
The walls are sagging under sound that I'll sell you,
Chip-board and stolen lines that I just
Choose to ignore to get by.

You walk up to me with your arms
Full of celebrity faces and notes all recorded
On out of date format that clings to the world .
We occupy physical time.

-------------

But there is nothing
Except their eyes
Staring at me on your bed.

I am standing
By the back room
Waiting to turn out the light.

-------------
