Time in the Tin Summer was discovery now the slightest wind chills me and I’ve set nothing aside I’ve only scattered thoughts to hide From quicker clock face hands From rain that turns it all to sand A bit more life is in the can With hands outstretched we try to cram Every last taste and scent and breath That rings of life but every pledge Holds its promise and the line Towards home is hard to find 30 seconds is a lifetime on tv, and this is what I’d say if I had your attention Please don’t spend the hours staring at the distant shrines in shopping malls The speechless saints in magazines and city walls See the billboards on the street Take us all for imbeciles Lay their promise at our feet But it’s always out of reach With our minds thus occupied We didn’t see our hands get tied They seduce us and deride Us, and we forfeit all our pride. Who dares tell you good enough Means buying into all this stuff While the thoughts inside your head Are dismissed, remain unsaid. 30 seconds is a lifetime on tv, and this is what I'd say if I had your attention Please don’t spend the hours staring at the distant shrines in shopping malls The speechless saints in magazines and city walls

The Starting Gun The starting gun Echoes on Fires again To raise us From waking dreams Half pretend Just one life We don’t de-pend upon The myths we’re sold Getting old Don’t let on Your heart’s a roaring furness underneath the evening news A mighty engine longing for The chance to be the fuse So dance again Doubt suspend Wake, extend The lack is not within Your own / hands can mend Draw the curtain back Join what was once apart Scrape the grease from Your beating heart... Your heart’s a roaring furness Underneath the evening news A mighty engine longing for The chance to be the fuse We are bullets of pure light Unravelling in time Through damage, loss, theft; The darkest of each other’s crimes We are bullets of pure light Unravelling in time Through damage, loss, theft; The darkest of each other’s crimes Your heart’s a roaring furness Underneath the evening news A mighty engine longing for The chance to be the fuse
