WRAPPED IN GREY

WRAPPED IN GREY


Description:

SOME FOLKS SEE THE WORLD AS A STONE
CONCRETE DAUBED IN DULL MONOTONE
YOUR HEART IS THE BIG BOX OF PAINTS
AND OTHERS, THE CANVAS WE'RE DEALT
YOUR HEART IS THE BIG BOX OF PAINTS
HOW COLORED THE FLOWERS ALL SMELLED
AS THEY HUDDLED
THERE
IN PETALED
PRAYER
THEY TOLD ME THIS
AS I
KNELT THERE

AWAKEN! YOU DREAMERS
ADRIFT IN YOUR BEDS
BALLOONS AND STREAMERS
DECORATE THE INSIDES OF YOUR HEADS
PLEASE LET SOME OUT
DO IT TODAY
BUT, DON'T LET THE LOVELESS ONES
SELL YOU
A WORLD WRAPPED IN GREY

SOME FOLKS PULL THIS LIFE LIKE A WEIGHT
DRAB AND DRAGGING DREAMS MADE OF SLATE
YOUR HEART IS THE BIG BOX OF PAINTS
AND OTHERS, THE CANVAS WE'RE DEALT
YOUR HEART IS THE BIG BOX OF PAINTS

JUST THINK HOW THE OLD MASTERS FELT
THEY CALL:
AWAKEN YOU DREAMERS!
ASLEEP AT YOUR DESKS
PARROTS AND LEMURS POPULATE YOUR
UNCONSCIOUS GROTESQUES
PLEASE LET SOME OUT
DO IT TODAY
BUT, DON'T LET THE LOVELESS ONES
SELL YOU
A WORLD WRAPPED IN GREY.....

...AND IN THE VERY LEAST
YOU CAN STAND UP NAKED

Andy Partridge of XTC fame is one of the GREAT songwriters of the 20th Century, a one-man Rogers and Hart, Ellington and Strayhorn, Cahn and Van Heusen, Lennon and McCartney....Colin Moulding ain't half-bad, either....

Everything. EVERY planet NASA has ever photographed, blurred and GREYED and DEAD....
In all that SUNLIGHT, how is that possible? This is a photograph of the MOON without the SUNLIGHT blazing on it....Looks quite like EARTH, eh?
