POSTCARD FROM AMNESIA

The spewy dewy 13th morning streets
Are lined with unwanted trees
I’m trapped by the trinkets
I believed would set me free

I meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
I tripped and it slipped my mind
I meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
A joke to folks left right behind

Backwalking in the footprints
That brought me round about there
But I can’t unsee, unhear, unfeel, unthink
I can’t change planes in mid-air

I meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
Just an old fart kicking up a stink
I meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
But I had too much to think

I’m leaving out the empties
I’m not taking in the fools
I’m opening the toolbox
Playing with my tools.
I’m dropping out of my comfort zone
I’m getting in the rounds
I’m shaving off the bad years
And piling on the pounds.

Today’s jewellery’s tomorrow’s jumble
It’s no secret, I can’t give it away
Build it and it will crumble
Like the twilight swallowing the day

I was meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
Something cheesy and trivial
I meant to send a postcard from Amnesia
But it’s hard to be easy and convivial
