Everybody Is Dead

I got some sleep in the afternoon
Four hours in a hungry week
Spent my money, spent my energy
Spent my purpose, will that improve me
Took the first bus home and fell down
When I wake up everyone’s asleep
I’m awake and everybody is dead

My train passed a river by
One trail ran on either bank
One is a road now, one is dirt

While you’re sleeping I am thinking
How you came here and why you did it
When you wake up you’ll be leaving
Dead leaves lying in Powis Square in the rain
Dead leaves rot now
Powis Square in the cold

She squeezed my hand in the back seat of a taxi
“Rolls Royce…Rolls Royce…….”
….I L O V E Y O U
