Cover of Imogen Heap's "First Train Home".


bodies disengage, our mouths are fleshing over
as hiss and echo gain irises retreat into ovals of white
the urge to feel your face in blood rushing to paint my handprint
and frisbee one by one your vinyl on laminate
i'm desperate for some kind of contact

first train home i've got to get on it

temporal deadzone where clocks are barely breathing
yet no one cares to notice, for all their yamming on i clam up to hold it together
i want to Play-Doh wave forms in the hideaway, i want get on with getting on with things
i want to run in fields, paint the kitchen and love someone
but i can't do any of that here can i

first train home i've got to get on it

so what - you've had one too many
so what - i'm not that much fun to be with
so what - you've got a silly hat on
so what - i didn't want to come here anyway

what matters to you doesn't matter to me
what matters to me doesn't matter to you
what matters to you doesn't matter to them
what matters to them doesn't change anything

first train home
got to get out NOW
