big bang

I could grieve alone forever at the parting of our ways
or lift you up to heaven on a tide of fulsome praise
I could turn the world around you to keep you in the light
and all I ask is just one kiss to see me through this night

I could share with you the secrets that are buried in my past
tear the shackles from you to set you free at last
love you ’til the sun burns out and the universe has gone
and then kickstart another so my love for you lives on


the walls are closing in on me
the silence drags me down
the only thing that bears me up
is having you around
and that is rather shocking as
you know that this is true
I’d rather eat my own left foot
than spend my time with you


there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
daddy what should I do
there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
asking the way to the zoo

listen son do as I tell you
whisper right into its ear
I don’t give a damn where you came from
but there’s no way to get there from here

there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
daddy I’m at my wits ends
there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
saying he wants to be friends

listen son don’t be a nuisance
tell it whatever you like
then give it a drink and a sandwich
and tell it to go take a hike

there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
daddy it’s singing rude songs
there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
wearing bikini and thongs

listen son I’m getting angry
nothing you say makes any sense
so tell it that it don’t belong here
then kick it back over the fence

there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
daddy it’s calling me names
there’s a pachyderm down in the garden
disrupting all of our games

listen son this is the last time
tell it that it’s had its fun
but if it don’t leave here instanter
I’m fetching my elephant gun.

dark descends

the dark descends and you and I
are sat alone ‘neath lowering sky
we listen as the wild wind sings
and wait in dread for what it brings
what evil fetch from netherworld
will be upon our persons hurled
what monster from the howling deep
would rend us should we dare to sleep
oh we could cry and pray aloud
for angel dressed in armour proud
who’d stand his ground with sword in hand
and guard with grace this precious land
but nought will come to cry or prayer
our words are lost in storm tossed air
and we must fall back on such might
that will protect us through the night
the bargain will be made in fear
for death or worse is coming near
and if the cost is much to pay
that waits upon another day
survival now our only goal
what matters if it cost our soul
