With my foot

I want to stop this train with my foot
Sckewer the planet to stop it from spinning
Clap my hands and turn off the sun
Tap my heels together and be gone

What do you say
To a dream that won't go away?

Nobody Knows

Nobody will ever know
All the things you do or did
All the good and all the bad
And how this world would be so different
If not for the things you've done
That nobody will ever know

People's tastes should be varied and numerous
But all I ever meet are snobs and obscurists
Discussing American 19th Century humourists

Clark (part two)

A long day
And no one knows
How hard you try
And how it goes

You give yourself
To all you can
You run around
Like a chicken without it's head
You think of all the things you did
And hope it adds up to something in the end
You wish you had someone to share it with

But no one's gonna keep up with your pace

A big day
And another face
A minute there
Then on your way

Like photos that
Steal your soul
You hand them out
To people you have made a promise to
Clark, you know what you gotta do
Let yourself go be broken in two
Only then can you build something new
And everything you learnt will come rushing back to you

And when I finally think back on this day
I only think of words you dropped in passing on your way

Like you miss me and how red is my colour

In the year

In the year friends of mine started to die
Or decided to get married and change
Instead of entering my life pre-packaged as a pair

Clark you know what you gotta do
Let yourself go be broken in two
Only then can you build something new
And everything you learnt will come rushing back to you

Front page news

Thoughts On Paul Hester
Casey made a really good point at the time
That when he say the Sydney Morning Herald Website
And his face on the front page
He knew he died
Because why else would he be front page news?

One true love

by Dan Wilson

And all through the party I want to leave
All alone with one true love
All of the lights are shining on me
But all I want is one true love

Parrallel Universes

Anytime you felt you drifted off course
You actually went down the only road there was

And it's really not worth it
Worrying about parrallel universes

Last Time I Saw Richard...

Last Time I Saw Richard...
Richard was my boss for a few short weeks at a job I had.
He left a few weeks after I started.
And after he left he came back a few times to say hello.
And it was good to see him, but we were working, and we'd moved on.
And we'd joke with him, and catch up and then he'd say goodbye
But he hung around for a little bit longer.
And participated in the one last story and joke.
Kinda like how you stay up and watch Rage for 'just one more song'.
We all realised he was probably a bit lonely.
And Ben said, he's like David Brent in the Office Christmas Special.
Just hanging around, when what made him part of our lives was gone.
And I did that once too and once is enough.
And so now it's been ruined for everyone.
And going back to your old work and hanging around
Is now called doing a David Brent

Evil Men

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
- Edmund Burke

"Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy."
- Richard Linklater

So who's right?

You're always going, I'm always staying

You're always going somewhere
I'm always staying still
You're always talking loudly
I'm always staying hushed
You're always smiling slightly
I'm always staying pissed
You're always going forward
I'm always staying back

I'm in love again
I wasn't looking and I just fell in
Now I'm covered in a fog

Back in the swing

I'm getting back into the swing of things
It's really just like last year or the one before
I'm yawning over speaking
Flying low to the ground
