Bluebottle Dreams

Bless this man for he has prayed

Prayed for days forthwith since waived

On pedestals perch silhouettes

Faceless masks for which he’s wept

Kept images of futures past

Bowed down and followed to the last

Or so he thought with sightless hope

Dependants given tools to cope

Tools unused or touched by strength

Unknown henceforth this courage whence

To find the courage to endure

A pain not felt by man before

“Get up, get up and walk

you son-of-a-bitch

walk downtrodden, sun stroked, bleary eyed

and hazy from this field of bluebottle dreams

get up, get up

you son-of-a-bitch and walk”

Bless this man for he has prayed

Prayed for days forthwith since waived

His path unknown, his troubles so

He’s never felt so more alone

Big man big love, one man one love

One voiced angels from above

Sing of truths from darkened lies

Truths once told through others’ lives

Herein the now we all agree

Agree to set this young man free

Although he does not know the fore

His pains been felt by man before

“Get up. Get up and walk

you son-of-a-bitch

walk in need, unquenched, sunburnt                            

and drunk from this field of bluebottle dreams

get up, get up

you son-of-a-bitch and walk”

Bless this man for he has prayed

Prayed for days forthwith since waived

His troubles are but his alone

Subsequent of actions condoned

Unknowingly through love scratched eyes

Passions forgave our minds abide

Now with memories so clear

Cut glass, walk forward without fear

Your mind is yours but love is mine

Take this hand and break this bind

Sunshine always follows rain

And man will always suffer pain

“Get up, get up and walk

you’re free from all that binds you

tread soft, tread slow, stop and pause

catch yourself in breath and know

get up, get up and take

the first step to the rest of your life

get up, get up and walk

you son-of-a-bitch from

this field of broken bluebottle dreams

get up you son-on-of-a-bitch

and walk.”
