AN EMPTY HALL
I never saw the crossroads on last year’s map
Should I take the left turn or the right?
Straight ahead all I can see is a never-ending trap

Dreams seem so much better looking back
‘Time Out’ for now stares me in the face
I need space like you need drink and food
I don’t want to leave you without a trace
And join the broken, workless multitude
Indifference on the menu for tomorrow

A place where shadows smile and look away

Kate the mandolin
And Finn sold his accordion
