Drawn, on the floor a line Lingua franca is this a sign? Our native tongues are twisted and tied Will talking untie ‘em As I am forming a creole, a rapport? Her endless eyes are mirrors in a hall Different colours, different eyes Our lingua franca died Are we blind? I carry a hard-back thesaurus – You carry a knife Universal grammar got my tongue Higher and higher we’re balancing on the wire We are tall But we’re two dark figures lost As the night draws in Different colours, different eyes Our lingua franca died Are we blind? Different colours, different eyes Our lingua franca died Are we blind? Here I hide, cold, Under the sheets and cry Different colours, different eyes Our lingua franca died Are we blind?

Reality poured in through the window Light poured out of his heart Reality poured in through the window Light poured out of his heart And through the lens Farewell The simple things are hard Like opening his eyes Farewell Things are distorted And begins his demise Divide, divide and break out A spectral array Divide, divide and break out Everything grey Farewell The simple things are hard Like opening his eyes Farewell He severs involvement in The things he used to like Divide, divide and break out A spectral array Divide, divide and break out Everything grey
