This is the first of five songs that form a journey through five paintings by <a href="http://johnconway.co">John Conway</a>, themselves based on five other songs.


Humiliation and pointed fingers
Bright people with hard vindictive laughter
This world cannot be trusted and I can’t muster any optimism

This fear surrounds until all I see if black
It's like a prism without colour,
And only pleasure in detailed fiction.
Escape into a safer world
And this is my intimate night time terror

The sun, the sky, I haven't seen you for such a long time
The sun, the sky, I haven't seen you for such a long time

I've felt every way a man can feel by now
Perhaps I've felt the best I ever ever will
It's safe down here for now and I feel comfortable
The sucking void inside me rarely makes it up to the surface
It's a distant rumble, and for the most part I feel fine
Cos I'm productive and my time is mine
It's a distant rumble now

Why would I give my heart away and risk it all
The burning pain and disappointment all over again
Disappointment all over again
I pray that no-one ever finds me
And I know that something isn't right
And I can drink it into submission most nights
I know that something isn't right
But I can drink it into submission most nights, most nights, most nights.
