"Copper Down" as written by and Colin David Macleod....
This ships gone and run its course
Through a tired lack of force
And all that matters
Branded on your arm
So you don’t forget
How we first met


Suddenly I have this feeling
Tasting copper in my mouth
I look towards the clouds for my last breath


When you go into your skin
I’ll be the hope joining the walls
And all the scraps of world joined at the hip
Are there to hold you in
A secret place


Suddenly I have this feeling
Tasting copper in my mouth
I look towards the clouds for comfort
Filling the blacks


Suddenly I hate this feeling
Tasting copper in my mouth
I look towards the clouds for comfort
I hope I don’t let anyone down
Filling the blacks

    General CommentTo let you down or myself, why can't it be neither. The impossibility between us is cast in my shadow, inescapable, prisoner to my body. Why can't we be? Not friend, not lover, what shall we label our relationship to make it work. Shall I send myself in a box until you know me? When will you say that you love me? When will you stop changing your mind about me? I'm human not tool. But why when I finally get misplaced away from your tool box, do I lie there waiting to be returned. I want to get lost, lose me, please lose me Hope.
