PERCHED ON THE CITY WALL
- Words by Ezra Hocquard

VERSE I

Appearing close enough to touch
Nothing depends on that focus.
Troubled me, troubled me
Vacant love, has never been.

It's a lonely track
To keep a win untold
Unsold I'm a window burning down
A lovely fool.

CHORUS I

Perched on the city wall
I'd never fall into your field
You know you keep us close to disaster.

VERSE II

Sad to say it's washed away.
Every step has gone to waste.

Distorted views - I write them off
The city works with pulling straws
Tragedy, tragedy -
All you've left for me to see

As blind as I've been, I have the wings
I'll find a day to reach the bridge.

BRIDGE

It's either fast safe easy.
And unlike me, or somewhere else
Before you walk the valley
I'll interfere - until you're manic.

It's a long way down...

VERSE I (reprise)

Appearing close enough to touch
Nothing depends on that focus.
Troubled me, troubled me
Vacant love, has never been.

It's a lonely track
To keep a win untold
Unsold I'm a window burning down
A lovely fool...
Down a lovely fool.

CHORUS II

Perched on the city wall
I'd never fall into your field.
Tremors keep us close to disaster
You know you keep us close to disaster.
