Cityscape Nights – Written Tuesday 22nd December 1992 (Aged 17)

Cityscape Nights

got up this morning and shook my head
felt like i had been hammered
felt like i was dead
i zoomed through time
searching for the happiness
that was rightfully mine
a television show from the sky
a psychic lion too
made me wonder why
smoking dope in a cityscape
drinking, sining, getting in late
a different girl each week
appeals to some, but it is not what i seek
love is what you want to be
but can it control peoples destiny?

James Garratt – Tuesday 22nd December 1992
