Atom Bomb

lyrics

The whalesong of tennis shoes
Upon a parquet floor
The pheromones and muscle rub
Coalesce in the hall

Images of earwig
Trowel cut in half
Wriggle on the patio
Yellow flags in the yard

And you were scared of the atom bomb
That fell on you
And so you would sink to the bottom of the swimming pool
And you would stay under the water til yr lips were blue
And there was no-one at all to bother you

where you lay
Deep in the day

And so it goes...

Now The hoverflies are clambering
Across the cellophane
Blacking out the residue
All the stuff that remains

You were a morsel in a memory
A beetle in a stream
A parcel of a particle
And all the stuff in between

And you were scared of the atom bomb
That fell on you
And you would stay under the water til yr lips were blue
And there was nobody there to bother you

As you lay
Down in your way
Deep in the day
Out of the way
