about

Like an alien who doesn't understand a chair.

lyrics

The children are ready to burn
Dreadful secrets I’ll never learn
Private skins they plan to shed
When the police helicopters have gone to bed

The children are all in disguise
Already they’re plotting our demise
Like their many deceased pets
They’ll let us slip away from neglect

How could you leave me?
Why won’t you stay?
How can I set you free?

The children swear - ‘oh I forget’
Buried menus - obscene texts
Limbs akimbo - feet up in the air
Like an alien who doesn’t understand a chair

The children live on toast and jam
No eye contact - doors that slam
Shoes that pile up on the floor
Like they don’t wanna dance no more

How could you leave me?
Why won’t you stay?
How can I set you free?

The children are ready to fly
They go quiet when we happen by
They got that look like ‘yeah, for sure’
Here we go - another world war

How could you leave me?
Why can’t you stay with me?
How can I set you free?

Go to sleep
Go to sleep
