VACUUM BOY

(All lyrics written by Adam Weston, December 2011 – May 2012)

I grew up in a vacuum
Everything to its own tune

I’ve heard nature abhors me
But I’ve found others who don’t need to breathe

This air you prefer – people breathe it everywhere, such an oddity
They wheeze it in and spit it out – it’s ‘economy’; a commodity

I resort to facetiousness
To deal with part-time existentialists
‘Share if you support second-hand opinions’
Say the bandwagon’s minions


Oh, I’ll stay awake for you all day
No, I’ll never see wrong in you
Oh, my body has seen better days but
I’ll hold the sun up for your wrath


It’s a matter of infinite hope –
I’m not going to judge you for watching soaps’
Omnibuses jack-knife themselves
In the valley by the stagnant stream

Eckleburg scolds
The anatomy of ‘the mould’
But pyjamas and 'cheap plonk’ and trashy chick-flicks
Don’t constitute the cuckold

I’ll hold the sun aloft for your wrath
With a rubber glove on each hand
Acceptance before embracement
Handshakes before hugs

That’s not to say I’m cold
Probably just bored
Alone with my monolith
Waiting for the star-child


Oh, I’ll stay awake for you all day
No, I’ll never see wrong in you
Oh, my sanity’s seen better days but
I’ll hold the sun up for your wrath
