Somewhere But Yesterday – Junk And Doughnuts

Junk and donuts
Sipping white champagne
And pirouettes in the afternoon
On a thin line
You cannot get out
Of this garden delightful to view
Carpets of marigolds lie all around you
In full view

There’s nothing that can save you
soldiers coming now
Guard that’s sacred
Soldiers coming now come for me

I have died for a sleep or a dream
Riding in theropods warm blooded beasts
Strangely still dancing to the lure of the meat
Has the garden invited you through
Lie down in marigolds ice all around you
Dressed to kill

There’s nothing that can save you
soldiers coming now
Guard that’s sacred
Soldiers coming now come for me

Let us take your fathers home
Bringing them salvation
Yet he can’t stand up
To a beggar in angry clothes
The scarecrow can’t be found
And we all feel better now
Can’t you see that

Honeybees as cold as ice
Jackals pulling down the sky
Wondering how genocide
Would look on marble stone
No sleep on that carpet for you
Lie there as marigolds die all around you
Blessed and killed

There’s nothing that can save you
soldiers coming now
Guard that’s sacred
Soldiers coming now come for me

Let us take our fathers home
Bringing them salvation
Yet he can’t stand up
To a beggar in princely clothes
The scarecrow can’t be found

Inside yourself can be that mountainside
I’m drifting on an ocean liner
A fog you can’t get through
Into a peaceful quiet avenue
To find another play
Dance to another night

All around this world
There is a path to the other side
Around this world
There is a doorway

You look through and see
You can move so easily
There’s nothing like it
i’m free again to find that other me
No no not me

I have lived as you do now
On another altar
I can give as you do now
Wishing I was older
Time to get out

I have lived as you do now
On another altar
I can give as you do now
Wishing I was older
Time to get out
Can you get

Free to choose the you you want to be
Free your eyes from fooling your senses
The fog can disappear

It’s a game you play
Nothing could be harder
Each and every day
And from the start
If you find your way
Trying not to falter
Find another way
Back to the start

I find I can’t give up
Faraway forever more

I run but cannot hide
Looking for you takes all my time

(And if you go I know you’ll find
It’s easy it’s in my mind)

I run but cannot hide
Looking for you takes all my time

(And if you go I know you’ll find
It’s easy it’s all mankind)

I’m on another altar
I’m wishing I was older
Time to get out
I’m on another altar
I’m wishing I was older
Can you get out
Can you get free

I find I can’t give up
Faraway forever more
I find I can’t give up
Faraway forever more

I run but cannot hide
Looking for you takes all my time

(And if you go I know you’ll find
It’s easy it’s in my mind)

I run but cannot hide
Looking for you takes all my time

(And if you go I know you’ll find
It’s easy it’s all mankind)

I’m on another altar
I’m wishing I was older
Time to get out

I find I can’t give up
But if you could what would you do
I think I might have killed myself off to sleep

An Afterthought

Mary had a little lamb
It’s face was really quite cold
And so she took it for a walk
Over the edge of a cliff and down
