Abstract art lines on white
Shapes and colours hold me tight
Trains and planes and crashing cars
Lonely people starry-eyed in bars
The world is upside down in a glass
Pour me another, this too will pass
My skin crawls with sense and sound
Take this heart and send it around
Climb this feeling, right up to the top
Look down from the edge, too late to stop
Muted notes and soft words
Are sharper than bloody swords
Snapshot of a life

Old rubber tires squeal on concrete
Dust still flying from the day’s busy feet
Tired trees dripping slowly with rain
Paint mirrors on the flagstones again
Sideways to the ground
Watching till I’m found
Snapshot of a life

From the constant circle
Sent the king on his path to the tree
Only in sound can you find silence
Only in crowds can you be alone
The world is upside down in a glass
Pour me another, this too will pass
Snapshot of a life
