lyrics

"The Order of Things"
© ℗ 2013 C. Rose

these boxes
hold nothing
but someone else's cares
in time we
will learn to
forget they're even there

the pictures
on these walls
behind their broken frames
they tell all
the stories
with someone else's names
________

this is not the life we made
and those are not our sins
these are not the plans we laid
and this is not
the order of things
________

the lamp on
the table
still flickers off and on
the wires
are frayed
and the paper shade gone

the bed in the corner
is stripped and lying bare
the nightstand
is holding
a note that isn't there
________

this is not the life we made
and those are not our sins
these are not the plans we laid
and this is not
the order of things
________

the window
hangs open
just as it was before
as god is our witness
in time we'll close the door

i only
hope we have
enough faith to survive
or enough drugs
to persuade us
these were someone else's lives
________

this is not the life we made
and those are not our sins
these are not the plans we laid
and this is not
the order of things

Electronic music progenerated from early 1980’s synth-pop examining the complexity of human communication; how we relate, connect, and manage the inevitable failures inherent in all fragile machinery.
