Today’s rehearsal with Dark Is Desire was great.  We’re working on the new songs ‘Night Without Sleep’ and ‘Safehouse’ (which is based on an excellent new tune created by Ash + Dan).

 

Ancient stories of stolen glories

Faces screaming from tragic flames

No state of mind for the chosen kind

Ain’t no place for babyface

 

Finding truth in the safehouse

Burnt out youth in the safehouse

 

Modern heroes, Hendrix, Monroe

They’re all waiting in the safehouse

Kiss of Pand’ra: propaganda

Tar and feather old offenders

 

Finding Truth in the safehouse

Burnt out youth in the safehouse

 

One moment of beauty

One kiss of your soul

One final possession

This flower will grow

 

In the safehouse…

 

Later:

 

‘All the Love’ – Kate Bush



 

Tonite, on the way back from rehearsal, I cycled past Miranda Wasp’s house and it upset me.  It really did.  I cried.  I often wonder what she’s doing.  And now I cycle by her beautiful home more than ever.

 

This is the ghost that looms…
