Roads

what the hell is going on
morals going for a song
were we thinking of this
all along
did government’s get it all wrong?

Capturing infinity
on ocean waves
far out to sea
waiting for the clouds to come
we both
play tennis with the sun

the sky is writing notes on sails

vapour trails from vapour guns
paper talk from paper gums
someone coming after me
capturing infinity.

If we’re standing toe to toe
the first to kiss
the last to go
is it possible I knew
before the end came into view?

Follow orders one, two, three
capturing infinity
someone coming after me on
ocean waves far out to sea.
