Jack Ketch

Take a deep breath
Nailed to your desk
You know you can’t keep on like this
You’re suffocating
Oxygen masks fall
It looks just like the drill
But the air hostess don’t look the same
Makeup’s flowing all over the place

What we need is more anonymity
What am I to do?
Am I anonymous to you?

Touch down on the landing page
Redirect through time and space
No need to ask the way

Trapped in the digital age
Surrounded by all friends
Or at least avatars of them
They always will be there for you
At least till you get disconnected

What we need is more anonymity
What am I to do?
Am I anonymous to you?

 

Excommunication

Coming up for air
Deep inside the atmosphere
Trying to ignore the news
Got an offer that your can’t refuse
Tear the institutions down
The revolution’s run aground
Make like an expatriate
It’s time to excommunicate

 

Dos Caballos

Try calming your shivering bones
When you wake to discover you’re not alone
Two horses are watching over your bed you sink into like a stone

 

Julius

You came into this world
Unannounced and unperturbed
Fifteen-hour haul
Animals on the wall
And I’ve given all my time
The nights are new defined
I’m not one to complain
Wouldn’t have it any other way

Now you’re grinning through your teeth
And catching up on sleep
Never seems to work
Like swimming in reverse
And I’ve less than half the time
The nights are just sublime
I’m not one to complain
Wouldn’t have it any other way

I wish I could see the world through your eyes
