  1. Honestly

From the recording Songs from Fiction Pt 1 EP

Lyrics

Honestly, if you ask me I will answer thee
Truthfully, I’m a mussel and I filter feed
I may be slow but I’ve seen places that you’ll never know
You can trim my beard, I’m a beatnik you can’t silence me

And if you still persist with your questions and you insist
And if you still demand of me, the answer to your insecurity
Then you must take this pearl that was handed down to me

Think of me as a person not a chimpanzee
Just look at me, I am busy writing poetry
Picture me parading round the old town square
Humour me for I will storm the Earth and stun the Air

And if you won’t return my love, I’ll push and shove these bars
Awaken what’s inside of me, I’ll fight the Russian Czars
Shake this mortal coil that taunts and shackles me

Take a moment to sail in the Trade Winds that blow south
Leave all your burdens behind
The birds are returning with branches in their mouths
We are all bone, tooth and claw

And if you can resist the charms of my ventriloquist
And if you can prevail the lifting of this painted veil
Yours will be the earth and I’ll be left behind

Take a moment to sail in the Trade Winds that blow south
Leave all your burdens behind
The birds are returning with branches in their mouths
Send your distilleries ashore
Let yourself drown, let your spirit be released
For we are all bone, tooth and claw

And if you can resist the charms of my ventriloquist
And if you can prevail the lifting of this painted veil
Yours will be the earth and I’ll be left behind
