Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey


Empty station
Watch the drizzle
With the data clouds


There are no planes
No single sex now


This world is not your oyster


Me entienes?


That passport expired
And the bus has been cancelled


No need to check the guidelines
Or look at a timetable


This building has been abandoned


Company orders


There are new plans now


A new order to this concrete reality


I have heard
Some call it unnatural
Others conspiracy


This forced removal
These lands put out to tender
These polluted views for the majority


Not that the pigeons
Or the rust on my shelter


For a revolution
With no alternative
For a dream
Born from a fantasy


Come on man
Just let me sit here and watch


I have nothing else to do
And nowhere else to go
