  • Hello
    I watch you come and go
    I know you can hear my voice
    Don't walk away
    Come daydream with me
    In closed loops and future-proof cardboard to caviar
    Let's show them how good we are
    If you look after me, I'll look after you

    Sonar, night vision or desperate lovers
    Seeking privacy for their forbidden
    I am their defenseless host
    Through my open wounds they let themselves in
    Sheltered (sheltered), they mock me (they mock me)

    If you stand up for me, I'll stand up for you

    I'm weather-beaten in a losing battle punctured by nature, becoming organic
    The air in here ages me, ungracefully!
    But if you take care of me, I will take care of you

    Oh, my crumbling heart!
    If you'll be good to me,
    I'll be good to you

    I'm amidst
    I could be the best decision you ever made, a beacon, your peaceful corner
    Find me, cherish me, take me on or pull me down
    You choose (Wait!)

    Oh, safe in the ache of soul-decay!
    'Cause I will remember you
    Will you (Remember me?)

    Bespoke to broken, this interwoven tapestry of tragedy,
    Crooked frames and cracked glazing
    Slithers of wistful window gazes glint in borrowed light

    Where doorways with no door stage a ballet of leaves,
    Who pirouette in the footsteps of once glorious days

    By peeling paint, I'm a sunken ceiling,
    I'm cracking up, and can seem threatening

    I'm falling apart

    I'm scary at night
    Take dark, forbidden
    Keep out, keep out!
    No, no, no go forth

    A has-been, a once was, the leftovers, an eyesore, bleeding, oxidising,
    A few remaining, unloved, emotionally damaged, a waste of space,
    A nuisance, I haven't had time to become, unwanted!
    What's gone? I'm losing it
    This is not what I stand for
    This is not what I stand for
    This is not what I stand for

    It was a perfectly good grand piano

    Stop in the name of love!
    I've got just what you're looking for!
    I've got tree-lined interiors,
    Where we can dine with the biosphere

    If you'll take care of me, I'll take care of you
    If you be good to me, then I'll be good to you

    I'm a story in mourning, and you're the author
    So pour out your masterpiece

    Entropy increasing, how long before I'm dust?
