lyrics

Alison, you take a bow and marvel at how lucky you are. In the crowd you see yourself from years ago, cheering you on.

She doesn’t believe in the audience. Looking round, wanting no part in it, hating that she cant help joining in. Breathing toxic air, its in her head that the world is all mad, so she must be alert.

Alison, you take her hand and wonder how you could ever have been so small. You try to hide emotions from so long ago, mirrored in her face.

She doesn’t believe that she's capable; visions of triumph and happiness inundate her senses til she drowns. Suffocating in her seat with eyes bulging madly, she fails to exhale in suspense.

With no wings, you'll fall; with no gills, you'll drown; with no medicine, you'll die. But she doesn’t seem to try to set anchor down/use a safety net, and she threw away the key, deliberately.

about

April Fish Wellington, New Zealand

Stories are variations of truths. Stories are made up.
Stories are honest lies.

Stories become songs, and songs are poems cloaked in sound.
This is art.
Art is in the eye of the beholder.

∴ April Fish are artistic liars. The cheeky blighters.
