To Shake The Night

De Boerderij met Lords of the Backstage

Found this one in one of my poetry books and I might have to use it - it's a bit mid-eighties Peart but I think the guitar may come out in a mo...

Zoom lense on a tolling bell
Microphone on a deathly knell
A beautifully miserable sight
To shake the night

A crying voice in an empty room
A weeping eye by an unnamed tomb
Wonderfully woeful sight
To shake the night
Think it might

Just roll away, today
In the burning heat of desire
Oh, please do stay, today
And keep alight the fire, today

Insight to a rifle shot
Thermometer on a melting pot
A veil of colour bright
To shake the night

Ticking clock with a timebomb fuse
River man with concrete shoes
A mask of horror plight
To shake the night
I think it might

Just fade away, today
In a massive feat of desire
Oh, please do stay, today
And keep alight the fire, today

Don't fade away, today
Keep that spark of desire
Oh, please do stay, today
And keep alive that fire, today

Rich Harding, 1986 (17th February)
