lyrics

I remember it got heated
more than any one remark.
A mute scene stifled by the sound of breaking glass.
I remember wishing you away
and getting thrown out in the dark.
Being half way up the motorway
and still breathing in the shards.
And from then we’ve gone our separate ways.
Shaken up and shocked.
Floating out on different planes.
Slowly cooling off.
But i remember it got heated
and getting thrown out in the dark.
900,000 years i’ve drifted to the sound of breaking glass.
And since then everything’s been running
from everything else.
Gradually the Galaxies
have been loosening off their belts.
Seems they too would sooner replace
one strangers face with another,
than be made to face those parts of themselves
they recognise in each other -
And i remember it got heated and the sound of breaking glass.
I remember wishing you away and getting thrown out in the dark.
And now if only there were snakes to take!
But I am bound instead for those who otherwise
would have only turned my head.
And with every step I take
the more uncertain I become,
now I know the gap between them
widens with each rung.
Though only relative to me
do natures rules keep changing,
when relatively, I always have been aging.
900,000 years I’ve drifted!
and still I cannot fathom,
for the life of me,
how this could have happened -
I just remember it got heated
and the sound of breaking glass
now I’m halfway up the milkyway
and still breathing in the shards.
