No Safety Valve (Sam Whimpenny)

Just what are you trying to prove?
Dictatorship has left you bemused
“Swear” you’re calling time after time
"Maybe” might have spared you this crime

Self expression hits a new low
You’ve preached but now you’ve nowhere to go
Shelter’s what you have but don’t need
It’s someone else that you’ve got to feed

With your hairpin bend philosophies
And your high heeled leather boots
You’re a corkscrew in my head – I cannot free you
You electrocute reality
As you execute ideals
Your Perspex lies are getting hard to see through

Desperation sets in a last
You know you can’t control what is past
Patterns of relief in your head
Thinking over what she’s just said


from Good To See You Again, released May 1, 2014
