and you may pour us away like soup

Dear Father Christmas:

It is years since i wrote to you.
I hope this letter finds you well and that the snow is still continuing to fall up in lapland.

Here it is mosly rain, not even jumper weather yet! But the christmas albums are already being played in the shops.
That must be so embarrassing to you.

I know this year will be exceptionally busy for you.
We all expect a little too much of you now i think.
And there are so many imposters on television.
Even in the street.

Since i wrote to you last when i was 9 i have tried to be good. But sometimes failed spectacularly.
I have also tried to do what i’m told but often have delighted in doing the exact opposite but always i have tried to give love and try not to cause hurt.

So
Dear father christmas
What i’m saying is ..

Now that i’m 47. If i have any last remaining credit with you, i have just these small requests.

That my kids have a beautiful christmas.
With love and understanding and peace.
Perhaps some heavy snow? That would be really great.
And can you sent the precious things that will really mean something to them?
And can you send them some hope for the future. That is very important.

I won’t ask you to solve the problems of the human race. These are our problems alone.

But perhaps this year you could consider not giving any presents to oil company executives and the politicans whose influence they buy?

And for me? Just some reading glasses :/ the blue ones

Yours completely sincerely

Thom.

P.S. Thanks for the zx81 computer when i was 11. That was really wicked.

it calls us like a phantom
it touches like a bream
it shines its understanding
see the moon smiling

open on all channels
ready to receive
we’re not at the mercy
of your shimmers and spells
your shimmers and spells
your shimmers and spells

(mmmmmm)

and we are of the earth
to her we do return
and the future is inside us
it’s not somewhere else
it’s not somewhere else
it’s not somewhere else

(one dayyyyyy)

one day at a time

(this is jonny’s bit, which I can’t play)

you called upon the people
people have the power

(whoops from crowd)

you called upon the people
people have this power
and the numbers don’t decide
the system is a lie
a river running dry
the wings of a butterfly

and you may pour us away like soup
like we’re pretty broken flowers
we’ll take back what is ours
we’ll take back what is ours

one day at a time

letthemachinesspeaktoyou:

“we’re not at the mercy of

your shimmers and spells

(mmmm)

we are of the earth

to her we do atone

and the future’s not silent”

–these would be the lyrics that are ruining my night–

I’m actually hearing the lyric as “to her we do return / and the future is inside us”. But I could totally be wrong. And either way, yeah.

I’m going to upload the version of the song I’ve been listening to, which I made by merging the audio of a couple of different youtube videos, along with my best guess on the lyrics. Looking forward to hearing it in finished form.
