The slow lane.

 

Schematic diagrams
Were you prewired left or right
The breaking of a wire didn’t solve
Irrevant Melody’s 
that takes you further back
Windows too those souls
Stained glass refractions
Long closed story boards.

Supposed I never really had those answers.
Just more questions like you and those other folk                                                                                                                                       waiting in the queue.I’ve been here gathering dust                                                                                                                                            Watching people skip past.

In the slow lane I learnt that some
Of those songs I’ve listened too
Are not lives I’d wished to lead on screen

All these doors along this store
These names I can barely read
The harmony’s I hear like Handel
Leaving pretzel crumbs for me

Suppose I never really had those answers
Just questions like you and those other folk
Waiting in a queue. I’ve been gathering dust
Watching people skip past.

The slow lane has never seamed so pleasing
All this great scenery and a good book 

Suppose I never really had those answers
Just questions like you and those other folk
Waiting in a queue. I’ve been gathering dust
Watching people skip past.
