Lazing – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


i have been lazing about
i have been lazing around
i never seem to get things done
it just gets me down
so i turn around and i argue back
no need to ask why,
no need to sigh
i looked you in the face
and you decided to lie
you left my place
and i wondered why
i got lazy,
and i thought i had gone crazy
but it was not me you see
it was the rest of them
paranoia grew quick and strong
and it soon tagged along
like a stray,
lazing about today

James Garratt – February to June 1995
