about

This was born after meeting a special person who challenged me to write about my beliefs for the first time.

lyrics

You're red and white stuff in a tight pink suit
You look like an ape but you're still cute
You got one tongue, two lungs and a heart full of loving blood

And I can't believe that you truly are
the product of an exploding star you're the
best dressed collection of atoms and DNA

You're a ball of light born of the hand of Aphrodite
Boy I got it bad, you're the best accident I never had

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust

You're a tiger then a slave
You're a teardrop in a crescent wave, you fade
Back into the roaring blue
The big lost plane

You are only temporary
A speck on a spot on a map of infinity
A fleeting flutter of a strangers eye on a passing train

I'm just a bag of skin holding my beating heart in
Boy I got it bad, you're the best accident I never had

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust

Nothing upon the past has power
Don't waste sand in your hourglass fretting
Nobody had a crystal but it's all water over the -
damn the man I'm who I am

You, you are dust
You're heat and light and lust
and atoms and matter and I'm loving looking at you
You, you are dust
and we should timewarp thrust whilst robots rust coz all we are
is heat and dust x 3

Nothing upon the past has power
Don't waste sand in your hourglass fretting
Nobody had a crystal but it's all water over the -
damn the man I'm who I am
