lyrics

Plastered to seating in the heart of town, anger shouts at an unseen man. The woman squeezes the device in her hand, she’s red as iron, casts a throwing stone

Throwing stones

Better not tease or belittle or boast. Red reactions and electric fires. Don’t relent, deceive, abuse or toast the remnants of your hearts desires

Your desires

Filthy washing line hanging over her head
Acid rain clouds
Scold the drift of time, undercurrent of dread
Acid rain clouds

Foul lament corrodes a forest of dreams
Notes reside beside a burning brick wall
If all that matters is the climb to the top
Don’t waste you seconds coz this won’t shield your soul

Shield your soul

Filthy washing line hanging over her head
Acid rain clouds
Scold the drift of time, undercurrent of dread
Acid rain clouds

Paper words cut close shredding you into pieces
You’re disposable
Open nerves you sold, you delight in just tasting the fruit of stale revolt.

Fruit of stale revolt
