Royal Free Disease

from by Chris Rainier

Vocal, pump organ, Weissenborn with e-bow



Asleep in the Royal Free Disease
My dreams seem infected
A fool took the heads off the sheep
This war for the trees, the birds and the bees
The dust clouds they blind you
The flies in the meat they find you
The moon shines on scavengers
The moon shines and scavenges
I realised too late it’s you, it’s me, it’s you, it’s me
We’re lucky we’re just a pinprick in time
The eye lost the needle when you changed your mind
Fold me like paper, in water, in wine
This ghost ship it’s floating ‘cross continents
This hell it’s a lonely sea
Till we slip off horizons, collapse and greet the Beast

How could you disguise this tale of two tired eyes?
This creature of habit, this beast of belief is just a museum piece
This joker’s a thief, your country’s asleep
