lyrics

{6. HALOGEN} The halogen flickers dimly sensing the coming daybreak balanced precariously on both feet he stumbles up these steep hills fighting the urge to fall lost in the pulsing whitewash tripping the light refracted pushes his way through the swaying bodies these lines are taut and torpid this ritual’s still in vogue but there will be a reckoning for superstars in waiting they’re queuing up and clueing in the pumps are primed and ready feel better won’t you I can’t speak clearly don’t you even try to speak this language I got lost in the translation just fell prey to hesitation speak clearly don’t you even try a satellite fixes orbit around a speckled constellation the strobe lights are oscillating signalling their intention flashing an SOS the monotone warning klaxon blending into the background like wallpaper fading slowly this film is too familiar I am not even here but guided by dead reckoning I’m pushing for the pavement the time elapsed but not too fast will circumscribe this longing who’s gonna want you who’s gonna tolerate this guilt trip down the arteries don’t get hardened
but try to lay low just move quick stick to the back roads speak clearly don’t you even try
