Statues and Snowmen

from by Storm the Palace

lyrics

The flat is cold
It smells of smoke
It smells of ticking clocks and other peoples’ homes
It is a mess
Oh what an embarrassing state of undress
I am not here
Just passing through
Another set of boxes in someone else’s rooms
Please ignore them
You won’t notice them soon
I have no plan
I have no programme
Just crazy visions and no one I can show them to
Please just listen
If it’s the last thing I do
I made a choice
A bold incision
Not to be a victim of my own indecision
Oh no not me mister
No need to carry me home
I must not doubt
I must not falter
Must not be sacrificed on someone else’s altar
I must not call her
Up to carry me home
I must go on
I’ve got to show them
Through cold and blizzards
Past statues and snowmen
Time waits for no man
No man to carry her home
You know the rules
Know how to work them
You catch a little girl on every shining circuit
You have a schedule
And I will swallow it whole
Today will be
Another battle
My mind breaks and my thoughts begin to scatter
Time what’s the matter
Why won’t you carry her home
You must go on
You’ve got to show them
Through cold and blizzards
Past statues and snowmen
Time waits for no man
No man to carry her home
