Seventeen Years

lyrics

seventeen years of a home where ever I steer

a wander addict can’t quit – the people that risk

it’s a bond in a bail out

we’re carving a new route

through an old parched path - we’re cutting swath

through a jungle of shit



we sit silent and alone

in the green grass dichotomy

elated and unknown

in the thankless debt of false autonomy



an unseen reason – recognition or subtle treason

the warm abuse or some excuse to keep ourselves unbound

the sake of art / the song of farce

a whispered echo when we’re gone

the instrument of sage descent

and all the deaf ears it falls on…



we sit silent and alone

in the green screen dichotomy

elated and unknown

in the thankless debt of false autonomy



what about love?

that’s one hell of a weapon



seventeen years in the murk of the ether

what’s to show what can we sow

from the strain of sound?



what about love?

that’s one hell of a weapon
