Come fly with me

Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away If you can use some exotic booze There’s a bar in far Bombay Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away Come fly with me, let’s float down to Peru In llama-land there’s a one-man band And he’ll toot his flute for you Come fly…

Invocation

The demon comes but must be called Comes to all the sleeping homes He breaks the night and lifts their drones Demon comes but must be called The demon calls to me at length Demon has no other strength Except to end the stretching thighs For those whose fate it is to die The demon…

Pumpkins & Cats

Run, run, catch the sun before he slips away Oh, winter Unreason’s cold, tenacity Pause your nature, dance with me One more autumn day Come, Prudence Come, reason to chase my light away Catch me, catch me No, not this day Twilight fall upon all souls Darkening our skin and bone Soon I’ll follow Prudence home Until…

Where are you now

You were the shadow to my light Did you feel us? Another star, you fade away Afraid our aim is out of sight Wanna see us alight Where are you now? Where are you now? Where are you now? Was it all in my fantasy? Where are you now? Were you only imaginary? Where are…

Calling your name

Been sitting eyes wide open Behind these four walls Hoping you’d call It’s just a cruel existence Like there’s no point hoping at all Baby, baby, I feel crazy Up all night, all night and every day Give me something, oh, but you say nothing What is happening to me? I don’t wanna live forever…

Love On The Brain
