Track Name: Hello Or Goodbye
I fell asleep upon the sand
Heard her voice, held her hand
And dreamed of being swallowed by the sea
We ducked and dived on the ocean bed
As waves collapsed inside my head
I hope I don’t wake up alone...

She floats around my sulking skull
Gloats - my life is duller now
She’s no longer by my side -
Yeah, and who am I to disagree
When the mirror looks back at me
And reveals a foolish man

Where is she now?
How would it be with her now...
Toxic? Utopia? A craving or a phobia?
Hello or goodbye?

Flashback to her basement flat
Marlbro Lites and rising damp
With a single bed too big for two
And this is how we’d spend our days
In a haze of lust and takeaways
Too wired to even step outside

The key is tight inside the lock
A cuckold in a floral frock
Believe what you want to believe
Alcohol mixed with juice
A neck is placed inside the noose
And hangs on each word she breathes

I’m waiting for a miracle
A thunderbolt, a fireball
The temperature is starting to rise
Beads of sweat become a stream
I’m on the shore back in my dream
And I hope I don’t wake up alive

Where is she now?
How would it be with her now...
Toxic? Utopia? A craving or a phobia?
Hello or goodbye?
