lyrics

Candles and Key Chains

The trees and the stanchions
Are windswept,
Rusted red, coloured blood
From the sky above.
I think the sky is shivering,
It dances,
Like candles and key chains.

A sudden metamorphosis
Seems lucid and fake,
Like what I’m really seeing is
My eyes turning opaque.

White-walled silence,
The reverence of Fridays,
Playing on and under tables;
It’s dinner time,
It’s dinner time.

You’re right,
Well it really isn’t fair,
But it looks like
The death of summer, she said.

The trees and the stanchions
Are windswept,
Rusted red, coloured blood
From the sky above.
I think the sky is shivering,
It dances,
Like candles and key chains.

You’re right,
Well it really isn’t fair,
But it looks like
The death of summer, she said.
