Deep In The Heartland
On the long night watch you are surrounded by darkness and your spirits feel tired
So many around you deeply down in the dream world of the skins they have acquired
Walking along the lines and contours where the pathway goes
You stumble on non-places in the darkness and bang my nose
Deep in the heartland, the painted window is breaking
Deep in the heartland, the house that holds it is shaking
Solid things seem to disappear down the grid they pour
If references lead us nowhere, what are they for?
It’s falling apart
Big men drive you crazy, put their lies inside your head
The voices of confusion, even follow you to bed
You’ve seen something not exactly hidden, but someone’s been trying
We’ve all seen things are officially denied, someone’s been lying!
