"Little Fictions" as written by and Craig Lee Potter Guy Edward John Garvey....
A muffled battle cry across the kitchen table
A baffling contretemps that shakes the day unstable
Confessions from the cab, a habit that I got from dad
The flurry of departure in a cyclone of cologne
Would often devastate the gate and hedge
And set our tiny teeth on edge
I see it in me now and pledge
To knock it on the head, that’s what I’ll do

A muffled battle cry across the kitchen table
Bridges up, portcullis down and round the Tower of Babel
I’m babbling in my dreams of blue berserkers coming at me
Eyes and tongues and rusty knives
And God almighty laughing at me
From a fat boy fishing chair
I wake to find you laughing there
It’s nice to know how much you care
Decided I should spend my life with you

We protect our little fictions
Like it’s all we are
Little wilderness mementos
But there’s only you and me here
Fire breathing
Hold tight
Waiting for the original miracle

I’m trying to focus on the issues of the day please
Your paper’s upside down, the radio’s in Chinese
These little tremors that are ripping through our rituals
That friction up the interaction
Emanate from quite the greatest
Thing that ever happened to
A pair of boozy bowerbirds like me and you
In other words
The alligator pear inside of you

We protect our little fictions
When we bow to fear
Little wilderness mementos
But there’s only you and me here
Fire breathing
Hold tight
Waiting for the original miracle

Fire breathing
Hold tight
Life is the original miracle

Let’s get old
Dare you now
Mix blood with me
All in
Love is the original miracle

Let’s get old
Dare you now
Mix blood with me
All in
Love is the original miracle
Love is the original miracle
