Search On

Tattered lives, ideals and plastic redemptions
Jump the barricades at dawns first light
Where are our tv dinners of slaughtered lives and remote controls
plugged into new elections to slow our electrocutions
Every game has an element of death
Where do you hang the crosses to get the best light
Search on

Curious and mystified, beyond now the barricades an endless night
Lets shed our clothes and dance in forests of life beyond now the city’s watchful eyes
They roll up the sidewalks early around these parts to concrete delights
Let us leave the shattered shop windows for others that need mirrors

Stretch out your arms, raise up your eyes
Stars above, a movable mobile cascading into infinity
Trip the heart and beat once more,
Sing the songs of distant thunder under a canopy of tangible wonder,

And know that you are one among many
That search on.
