Oh, how it’s been so long,
We’re so sorry we’ve been gone,
We were busy writing songs for you…
Feet disturbing rainbow puddles
Wading in the ankle-deep flood
Zephyr and rain torn in muddles
Lost in the milky film of the fog.
A shattered half-empty wineglass
Vermilion stains on cream carpet
Tongues storming off, quite crass
Tied in a fight that no one started.
Cosmopolites bustling angry in line
News swing from vine to grapevine
Suits and silk dresses, a bar rumble
Jane is lost in a crazy asphalt jungle.
Caveats written in the cigarette air
Warnings washing up in selt water
Broken glass bottles decides dares
But the last laugh goes to the waiter.
Casual conversation in the quaint quiet lattice
Tall drinks of foamy, rich, and sweetest lattes
Croissants, cakes, pastries, a phantasmagoria
A mollifying ambience far away from hysteria.
