On a day like today

On a day like today…
Yeah
Did it all come undone
In the time it took
To catch the morning paper
as the early birds
welcomed you to their panic
Did the crap add up
To one big motherlode
In ten seconds
It's come undone
It could happen

And I will be ugly and bittersweet
Yeah
Just like sunlight when it melts the street
Like icecream when it hits your feet

Like memory it oozes over and through
Creeps up from behind
Leaves you standing in the wreckage
Wondering what the fuck happened
To anything that every mattered

If pure will is all that props you up
What happens then

Style over substance
Attitude over style
Give me give me give me
Sweet sweet silence

powerful Kieran. I love the rhythm through the whole thing, it's a painful plea..

Style over substance
Attitude over style
Give me give me give me
Sweet sweet silence


have I told you your writing reminds me a bit of Bono's on Zooropa and Pop?

Hmmm.... I think I have to agree with that statement. The imagery, yeah. Good work, Kieran.

the first stanza kind of reminded me of "The Wanderer"

I really enjoy reading your writings, you always have something interesting to say, and in a very unique way
