about

Primary Jet Men. 2004.

there was a time in this life
I would rather forget
all of those memories
aren't done with me yet
on the nights where the demons
demand an audience with my dreams
I take the oceans good company
and light a fire for the dawn

pile up the driftwood
to fuel this fire for the dawn
and prey its reflection
rages like a bushfire
across the mirror of my soul

The demons lay siege
to all I hold dear
in the night I can run faster
still they are near
choke their names in my ear
so close I can smell their foul breathe
oceans breeze is the perfume that I need
and a fire for the dawn

pile up the driftwood
to fuel this fire for the dawn
and prey its reflection
rages like a bushfire
across the mirror of my soul

from the sea which is night time
I feel in a simple way reborn
as the first gold comes rippling
wise words whispered are the light of the dawn
I feel my heart beat
sweat life in my veins
beheld the oceans good company
and burnt this fire for the dawn

pile up the driftwood
to fuel this fire for the dawn
and prey its reflection
rages like a bushfire
across the mirror of my soul

(and of the repeating line, 'you're mine', that is either god singing to me, or me singing to myself, or both)
