lyrics

according to all of the clocks
i am older than when i set off
but sure as each hand feels its way around
i will not be put off
i will not be stopped

so send in the Heavies
i’m ready for anything
and you started it
so i will have to finish you
i will hold you to it if i have to

be the first to emerge
as when the dormant awaits its rebirth
it savours its skin
binding and silken
looks all the way down and then pleads
to the sycamore seed

and says

“this is my chrysalis
my own
my metamorphosis”
and covers it in the biggest kisses
says “you know i’ll keep imagining
that you’re all around me
like a silver lining
a light defying that anything
is down to timing”

‘cause throughout life i have sought
things that straighten but never pull taut
things that coil in the hand
things that understand
that there are things to see through
and there are things to abort

so fuck it
fuck it and its time limit
i was only just getting into it
and short lived
as life is
i like it
and best for its
rough edges
