lyrics

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.” —René François Ghislain Magritte


left hand hiding
slipping
slipping
second hand nervous
ticking
ticking


jack is nimble
jack is slick
jack has nicked the candlestick
the sandpaper touch of rubber-tongued words
licked like a sunburnt kiss 


slowly sucking honeysuckle
wanting more than tiny
dew-drop tug-o’-wars
climbing to the higher branches
she saw sweetness
he saw blisters

he never feels he’s won
it’s a see-saw game
so i’ve been tumbling after ambition
it was once such a good friend
now

jill is proper
jill is prim
jill is lovely out and in
i’m high strung
black as her
string of pearls
cold as a winter’s wind


jack fell down
and broke his crown
and jill fell after him
and though he landed in my arms
the consequences never
never seem to end

i never feel i’ve won
it’s a see-saw game
so ive been tumbling after ambition
it was once such a good friend
now
it’s always up or down
it’s a see-saw game
so i’ve been tumbling after ambition
he was once such a good friend
now
