I tend towards a life of style Taking comfort in the surface of things She said "I like the view from up here All I see is what I need" Skin.

for every moment that we wasted when the light was still you will beg for just like I do, the latest silence pill so I'm gonna make my exit when the void is filled if its true, it don't move, you can walk right through in the fullness of time I'm gonna unwind my mind hung out to dry by a crystalline why and like the autumn draughts turn to winter chills, I'm gonna sink to the ground, there to drag you down share in my views, hear the empty news I been released yeah yeah yeah

yeah I'm hockin' all my poems to the strange strange child she poses me a riddle in the form of a naive rhyme I answer in prose with exquisite, lyrical pride but it seems I missed the mark and the mall-rat, she turns and cries shouting to her now, startled startled eyes "I've got some well earned views" but I've lost my cue so I'm not inclined I best move on, else I'll be removed if only I could conjure I'd make a sweet cool breeze float me away like fairydown settle me now where the air is clean but that hot wind, its gotten me beat its meltin' me down still, I'm waitin', for the coldness of your call lining up those who got something I don't I'm gonna let it slip but better you mind As the kid pointed out, I gotta way forward and every way, its gonna be bleak the crowd stares back, all those pale pale eyes and I can't hardly see to think if only I could conjure I'd make a sweet cool breeze float me away like fairydown settle me now where the air is clean but that hot wind, its gotten me beat its meltin' me down still, I'm waitin', for the coldness of your call

with a mustard silk shirt and a pig-blood tie this dapper man was caught outta time with finest mauve flares assuring style this measured man took good advice for 10 years or more we watched a sadness unfold. hoarfrost eyes and a cobweb mind and how we wince when the conscience pricks

about

The first collection, loosely inspired by the idea of the Associates' 4th Drawer Down.

I have coined the term "lyrical scarcity and melodic primitivism" for this music, although at times I stray from that ideal.
