WAVES BREAKING ON MARS

Held against your ear,
Empty money-jars,
Sound just like waves,
Breaking on Mars,

You and I could live by the ocean,

Bauble in the sky,
Just outside of reach,
The rich will get there soon,
Leave us on the beach,

35 million miles,
Brighter than any star,
Seasons twice as long,
Really not that far,

You and I could live by the ocean,

Held against your ear,
Empty money-jars,
Sound just like the waves,
Breaking on Mars,

You and I could live by the ocean,

Men-in-Empty-Suits,
Came to steal your dream,
Vacant, hollow eyes,
Counting every bean,

You must have spent it all,
You can't make the rent,
Juvenile excess?
Wilful mad intent?

You and I could live by the ocean,

When the Black-Dog bites,
You know I cannot stay,
My eyes are open wide,
But I am far away.

(Jeff Myers - music and lyrics 2015)
