It’s difficult to see in the dark
You panic fast
And pull all the sounds you don’t hear
To your frightened ear

Noise don’t cause you fear in the night
To wake in fright
It’s really the cold quiet room
Spilling blue coloured light

Several feet from where you lay
They’re waiting patiently
They never make a sound
Despite you hanging ‘round

You hear them through the car park at dawn
The curtain drawn
The rattling wheels, a car door
As there goes one more

Your father and you stand at their feet
You barely think
The words just repeat and slow down
“It’s all bad for me”

There’s no need to find your way
We all end in the same place
Don’t worry anymore
There’s no test to study for
No warden to impress
No suit you have to wear
No rules for styling hair
No magic underwear


from Almost at the Ivory, released April 15, 2011
