I Could Be Shouting

I went out
Into the garden
In my dressing gown
I worry about the world getting busy
With unimportant things
I look at the sun coming up
I look at the world sinking down
Listen to the blackbird; go off like a gun
My feet are very cold and wet now

I could be shouting
On my own
I can’t hear anyone else at all
I'm on my own

Don't tell your children to hush don't make a sound
Ask them to stand in the rivers and chase the fish around
I hope the planet and nature is left for them to call Mother
I’m sending out my siren fears one way or another
Am I a messenger pigeon with an airgun pellet in its wing
For a distracted world that only worships shiny things
Do I write on the wall that no-one is going to see or read
The pretty pictures on uchewb are all that they need
Am I shouting on my own?
Am I shouting?

I could be shouting
On my own
I can’t hear anyone else at all
I should be shouting
I'm on my own

I bang my head
When I get into a car
I am not as flexible as I once was
Can’t bend what is wrong into right

I could be dancing on my own
I can’t see anyone else at all
I could be dancing
I’m on my own
