lyrics

London is a rain machine, who keeps turning it on?
I thought the cold was ending but I'm still not getting sun.
And everyone's complaining like they don't know who to write to,
We just wear down all our pencils while we try to wish the sky blue.
I just checked the rain we got a whole week of weather,
Like the sky's OCD trying to clean the streets better,
But I've never found myself with dry veins in my bitterness,
I've got the black inside me and I'm living like a lizard is.

I go to the ground feeding my sadness to the worms,
I want to fly away but there's too much baggage tied to words.
Light will emerge when I get my eyes out this darkness,
I've got the strangest wounds and I'm speaking in their jargon.

Do poets follow bad clouds or bad clouds the poet?
Don't test drive my madness you can call me locomotive,
There's a head in my voice and I can't stop it thinking,
The worst thing about this is there's no way no to listen.

I could be standing in an earthquake and the only think that can't shake is that feeling that I can't keep sinking, and you know, I sleep on my feet sometimes and criticise my own dreams like "Come on Ray you've got to keep it moving." But my movement is stuck in the time that I spend trying to live in it, yet I know what really matters is all the little things. I am from a universe that has not taught me about its gravity, I'm from a slightly more derelict Hackney, I've been working on myself you can smell the surgery. You can see the scars, stretching I can tell you where it hurts. Failure is the worst thing that could happen to my heart. I know how hard it gets when you know only too well that's it's in your architecture to destruct what you've built. And you're burning, on fire from the answer that what you have is not working. Sometimes I love what the weather does. Sometimes I wonder if what falls out the sky belongs on the ground?

London is a rain machine, who keeps turning it on?
I thought the cold was ending but I'm still not getting sun.
And everyone's complaining like they don't know who to write to,
We just wear down all our pencils while we try to wish the sky blue.
I just checked the rain we got a whole week of weather,
Like the sky's OCD trying to clean the streets better,
But I've never found myself with dry veins in my bitterness,
I've got the black inside me and I'm living like a lizard is.
