"The Crukster" lyrics - GILES, GILES AND FRIPP

"The Crukster"

You're ever in doubt about this world
With eyes cast in deep frown
Wheels of turbulence abound after sweet innocence
But no, not sweet innocence
Just a bright colour

A colour so purposefully painted
Yet will not cover the stain
Nor stop the pounding rain
There is no shelter

There is no shelter for eyes that see
Troubled, stumbling to be but condemned

For to realise and suffer
That is the penalty for you and me
No sound can open their eyes
Nor vision bring reality to gloom and darkness

But don't sit at ease
Though the day is cold
The searing gap may weld
And once again while dew is wet
A bright colour will cover that paint
'Til silence is set
And then once again you can hear hell's heat
