VERSE

Brother you look like the Taj Mahal,
One colossal dome above you 
And the smell of something other,
A pillar and a scimitar, a little

Yes I miss you like a formless hide 
Stretching over me and dangled 
From the coastguard in a chopper
The scaffold of me all awry, a little

Broke your shoulder on the library steps 
Hanging round there in the dark 
Just doing nothing or whatever
What do you mean you saw the stars? You little

I could write it in a murder font 
I could say it in a way that would be lying or whatever
I don't want them to tell us apart!

CHORUS

You say that I'm an overlord?

Gorilla limb swipe and beat, and I learn dick about Earth.
Remember good man, you understand the heavens 
But leaving those streetlights on?
