The magic sway of oscillation
Causing febrile aggravation
Spreading fear and consternation
Across islands alone
My mind’s exaggeration
Mimics every complication
All this hope and this frustration
When I’m sat here on my own
Do you feel asphyxiation
Rising rage and confrontation
When there’s no point in objection
And the endgame’s coming home.
How did I ever reach a position
Where what’s real is an obsession
Killing bliss with such perfection
It’s murky in the danger zone
I can deny that great solution
Pretend my world is an illusion
Forget the idea in rejection
Before tomorrow comes and goes
Where is the duty in abstention?
Give me love and revolution!
Let me crave that pure attraction!
In a bitter, sweet, full, blow
I can manoeuvre operation
Pull the wool from situation
Paint a scene of lusting fiction
Ponder truth and play the show
For there’s one word in my conviction
Wrapped in wonder, dressed with caution
Lost in thought, lost in translation
Where the good and bad times sow.
