"Strawberry Hill"

[ from the album "Hypnoprism" (2010) ]

Lyrics

Flight path
Walk the track along the dead canal
Phoenix rising over water
Cranes atomic in the meadowland
I am weak
But you are strong
And I wish we were together

Black life
Foggy filters on a halftone pan
Colours blending in a starburst
Shopping centre in a half built ring
You are tight
And I need light
And I wish we were together

Swan rise
Flying wild before the zigzag suburb
Now I kneel before you naked
Alloy framing on a fat back feature
Fantasy
On the borderline
And I wish we were together

Strawberry hill
Black graffiti on a shotgun shack
Nothing's moving on the waters
Pulling focus on a hot young body
Fantasy
Reality
And I wish we were together
