Fool’s Paradise

last night around the time
when the queues were nowhere near fine
and the streets were filled with red and blue lights
it was nettlesome
i wouldn’t call it bright

when the air smelled of dripping dreams
thanks to the uniform and diffident queens
waiting in lines eagerly to pass the man
just to make memories
they themselves won’t be a fan

to do things tonight
that can’t be done tomorrow day
to tell a story that’s alright
and leave behind the horrors of grey

but don’t let all this
make a fool out of you

this town’s a different town today
this town’s a different town to what it was last night
you couldn’t have done that on a sunday
of course not

now don’t let all that pretty face
give you butterflies around your base

that girl’s a different girl today
i said, that girl’s a different girl to what you kissed last night
you couldn’t have done that on a sunday
of course not

but i can’t say the same for those presumptuous non-settling monkey suits
i just can’t

last night what we talked about
it made so much sense
but now the haze has ascended
it doesn’t make any sense anymore

The weekend anthem

i saw you piercing through the tipsy sky
looking for the stars
but you ended up
skedaddling away some desperate flies
while i was busy
constructing the night
a glance over you was
alright to summon a smile

but what can we do about the scumbag
who spoiled himself
over the dreams of the night
i admit it was silly, cold-hearted smite
only if you were
responsible for those arctic floors
well not everyone can do it alright
not everyone can compete with whores

your wandering eyes
traveled all the way
into the dreams of naughtiness
breaching through
the air of flatfoot presence
who couldn’t care any less
the apparent waiting was quite a concern
as i started to stir it up
spicing it up with tabasco
even the bloody mary wasn’t good enough

no don’t give me those looks
i’m not the kind of fool
who’s gonna sit and sing to you about the stars, girl
but I remembered when i looked up earlier
into the dark half of the blue and they’d gone backwards
but it shouldn’t affect you
neither me
the things that happened under the blue
were just meant to be
