Nothing is glamorous

Nothing is glamorous
My day is deranged from the start
Some jazz band plays in the corner
From some distant time
Their sound still reaching my mind
As I stare out the window into the brooklyn sun
Burning the crowd
As they walk
Stand still
And run
Like a sax solo
People float in and out of different modes
Clash into each other
Hit a sharp
Just miss each other
Reach a flat
Then go on their merry way
Resolve the chaos
The train rolls by
Magically overhead
Like all the things I should be doing but don't want to
Flowing into the city

A song comes to mind

Love will save us all
But seems in short supply
The phantoms play their jazz
To the strangers walking by

Love will save us all
But is like a slight of hand
If the savior comes at all
He will live amongst the damned

Love will save us all
But love pollutes like dope
A little fills yer heart
With the thunder cloud of hope

It threatens to come down
And soon someday it will
As the the thing that gives you life
Comes in now for the kill

Love will save us all
But we must be its spark
As we hideout from ourselves
In the comfort of the dark

Nothing is glamorous
My day is deranged from the start
Some jazz band plays in the corner
From some distant time
Their sound still reaching my mind
As I stare out the window into the brooklyn sun
