Spend our money on distractions
To displace our emotions
Exhaust sleeps with ambition
In overpriced accommodation
With telephone and bills
Everybody’s shouting
And all I feel is dirty
Everything’s distorted
By rays of different waves
To make it all look normal
To make it feel ok

I know you really want me
But you can’t have me
I think I’ll sit in this window
I think I’ll tease you
I think I’ll please me
Something’s you’ll never know
Like what’s at the end of my black rainbow

You know we’ve been cabled in
With intellectual morphine
We want to be outrageous
But we don’t even know it
Only victory’s impressive
The vanquished are neglected
Honesty’s rejected
All I fell is dirty
All I feel’s complicit
Now I’m not playing for a gallery
Or some index linked academy
We get all judgmental

I know you really want me
But you can’t have me
I think I’ll sit in this window
I think I’ll tease you
I think I’ll please me
Something’s you’ll never know
Like what’s at the end of my black rainbow
Words best left unexplained
Places you’ll never go
Like all the way to the end of my black rainbow
