Upgrade Sojourn


Upgrade Sojourn…….

In the concrete towers
In the concrete Babylon
All your senses strip back
You know it doesn’t take long

One day you’re dreaming
And the next you’re awake
Wondering what is keeping you
Keeping you up so late

How do we tread this mill
Without falling to the ground
Without falling to our knees
Without making a sound?

There’s art on the table
There are pictures in my head
There’s a pulse i keep checking
To make sure I’m not dead

6am Sunday morning
Is the quietest time there is
When the sirens are sleeping
The dawn is a kiss

But I miss my portal
With it’s www view
Connections down phone-lines
Lead me to you

It’s a strange way to live
In this dot.com reality
But it’s a way of beating back
The flood of banality

If I seem totally distracted
By a variety of creative things
It’s because I’m in a hurry
To find what makes the heart sing…..
