Lyrics and music- Adrian Roye


Walking round’ corners

the streets getting bigger

surreal doused surprise

as the street lights get dimmer

oh welcome you new word

I’ve heard much about you

I’m glad to have met you

but I can’t get out of you

people parading their wares to the landscape

dream riches ascending

like buildings that sky-scrape

oh please Mr I’m not prepared for your notion

a plastic bag goldfish I am in the ocean you swim

models on taxis

and cameras and flashes

the men strike a pose

as she beats her eyelashes

my compass the empire

I left undiscovered

the magnets distracted

no time for another one

oh where is my north star

I long for my manger

once straw to a stable

but now I’m a stranger

the looks on their faces shows I am misplaced

but it’s just my reflection

of what I’ve been showing them

out to the highway where man stops for no one

my memory replaced of the land that come from

the buildings that sky-scrape
the landscape familiar

hello to the door

farewell to that other word
