Lyrics

Polaroid lenses © von robinson 2006

Her life is so dramatic
It ought to have a soundtrack, she used to say.
Then polished up my chromium dental caps
And strolled off to the handbag store.
That soundtrack’s become
An almost imperceptible background drone.
I’m chaos mysterious
Alone with her, far from home.

Polaroid lenses
Won’t you darken a shade?
She keeps looking for the truth
I’d hoped you’d help me evade
I’ve got 9 tears in my eyes
A fundamental lie you’ll betray.

We couldn’t be reflective
Near the fractured mirrored trousers she put me in.
And I wouldn’t hang the canvas
Of Holy Scripture tablets she brought with her.
It’s Sunday evening
And I wish I could find one more day to ruin.
I’m Chaos Mysterious
Alone with her, looking through

Polaroid lenses
Won’t you darken a shade?
She keeps looking for the truth
I’d hoped you’d help me evade
I wish I could trade
These tinted lenses for mirrored shades.

cos you’re out of fashion when she comes in to view
Something painful comes out from me through you
I can’t explain why, and I’m not prepared for truth
I’d rather be hiding out behind you
But she’s not radiant and you’re not transitioning
So what might be conveyed?
I’m not being brave
That’s me speeding away.

When she said she’d been committed
I thought she was admitting something more.
That’s how our meanings tangled
Her final guilt I mangled, her punch destroyed
Our trimless doorway
Framed the image I’d already had in mind
I’d like to show
I hadn’t seen this coming for a long time

Polaroid lenses
Won’t you lighten a shade?
I’ve got one tear to shed
And it’s out on parade
And I’m not being brave
There just are no more I’ve saved
It’s the truth.
