Anouska Hempel just appeared to me In the form of one of my dreams She was illuminated Sunlight on her skin Pictured in soft focus A heart-shaped tailspin Strip lighting Highlighting The black and white Colour scheme She gathers her hair in her fingers Her lips are frozen red I can see her stop-motion animation in her head She looked so still and serene The library picture for every magazine Photos in a scrapbook Sheltered from the rain Images picture perfect And wrapped in cellophane Your eye gaze Sets the stage Sparkling Aquamarine She gathers her hair in her fingers Anouska's lips are frozen red And I can see her stop-motion animation in her head

Vallorcine 03:44
In answer to The question you Just asked me, secretly I'd take a car To the nearest star Or as close as I can be Take the train Straight from the plane To the higher peaks of Chamonix Run the mountain path Through the trees to Vallorcine Stop on the Col at the top of the world In answer to The question you Ask me, frequently I'd take a boat Somewhere remote And lay on the beach Sleep in the sand Asleep on the sand

The only girl in French Club Puts on her make up Stretches out her hand Diamonds in her eyes Sparkle and surprise She’s there in the skies She doesn’t need to worry Because that’s what makes her feel bad Diamonds in her eyes Sparkle and surprise She’s there in the skies The only girl in French Club Doesn’t want what you’ve got She keeps that to herself Diamonds in her eyes Sparkle and surprise Silently beside her when she cries La seule fille au Club de Français Elle se maquille Elle sait ce que tu ressens Elle sait ce que tu penses Diamants étincelant et surprennent Aux yeux elle est là aux cieux The only girl in French Club Doesn’t want what you’ve got She keeps that to herself Diamonds in her eyes Sparkle and surprise Silently beside her when she cries.

All the secret home truths Images from the photobooth A glimpse of the next steps Roadmmap, Alphabets Horizontal bar graphs Functioning psychopaths Cheap photo montage All the right camouflage Carouselling polychrome Soundtracked on a Stylophone Roadside messages Toehold on the precipice Vertical bar graphs Functioning sociopaths Cheap budget montage All the right camouflage Look up to the high trapeze Promises without guarantees Swings like a metronome Spaced out on Zopiclone In the quisling circus ring 22 clowns colouring In the Circus of Death

You like our songs Our sound is sweet "This song" is really up your street The noise we make And our mistakes All out of time But still complete. She wanted me to Write another new tune Like all the others Is it something just for us Or something just for me Despicable me You get Americans as friends And the messages they send Beggar belief An aperitif For a meal you'll never eat And she wanted me to Say some things that were Terribly rude And to take her somewhere When she was quite bare 'Cos she's thrilled that someone seems Seems to care

Stephen take your medication Please stay in make good decisions Don't go out if that upsets you Don't go back there if that's what you want to do But those lights lead the way Back to your old school Back to the innocent and cruel Remember what we have told you About the bad things that You can do They are not necessary In fact they are really Very, quite scary All the bad things that we talked through Are all about to come true

Solitary boat That's barely afloat Twisted and tilted by the waves Swept in whispers under the sea Slipping to the seabed silently Fingers tight against the wheel Struggles to conceal Hands white against the metal rim Captain mouths a silent hymn Laid in secret on the sand Laid in silence in the sand Laid in secret on the sand Laid in silence in the sand Glass boat lost in the swell Capsized hollow shell Coral reef Ocean tides Against the seabed sand dunes Hidden from the stars and the moon Laid in secret on the sand Laid in silence in the sand Laid in secret on the sand Laid in silence in the sand The underworld The sinking sun

EJB 03:56
Hallelujah to you and me Avenues all lined with trees Good things come to those that wait If you don't hesitate Something equal this way comes Calculating all the sums Menthol-tipped cigarettes Music on compact cassettes Hallelujah to me and you A constant sense of déjà vu Blessings fall onto us all Garlands around our necks for what comes next
