so now i'm holding in my sides, and my bags are over spilling,this leads me to think.
my guts have started to boil, and my stomach keeps on spinning. thank you, my friends.

The next stop is not echo park so i've shut my eyes, i'll pretend instead.
You don't have to tell me this is wrong.

I know but i can't erase two years of my life.
even in my dreams if you turn up i'm unhappy.

I take a step, and carve all the horns. the wings are trapped in the door,
i sure feel, the spit.

and everyone is staring,it's all so overwhelming, if they didn't look would i still complain.
of course , i would.

a disquieting pre-occupation,
the keys to a nightmare which i taped,
and made sure, i watched daily.

this required a careful touch and a swinging chain.
put the salty water in my broken wounds....

tell her,
i give up.
he's won,
and i have lost all
my humanity.
and now,
i give up.

i give this planet another 10 years at least. sweet.
sarah, my treat.
keep running from me.

    General CommentThe "Sarah" sounds a lot like "Tell her", a strange phonetical coincidence I think. It still sounds a lot like "tell her" to me, but a good few reliable sources say it's "Sarah", so I guess it's so.

    General Commentjust me or
    "a disquieting preoccupation,
    a keys to a nightmare from which i taped,
    and made sure
    i watch daily."

    v v v similar to jg ballard opening of attrocity exhibition-
    "A disquieting feature of this annual exhibition.."
    "..the keys to a nightmare in which she had begun to play a more willing and calculated role."

    both lines on the very first page. maybe im reading farrr too much into it but it definately rang a bell for me! love love love dev and he's even more amazing if he's been reading some Ballard!

    General CommentLove, nay treasure this song. The build up, the flute, the female vocals at the end. It's just lovely.
