the lyrics


One More Paper-Cut


thank you, Rightly, ever so much
we know you'll come into your own some day
my friend, there really is no need to rush
`til then here is another paper-cut

the backward climb upon the crooked stair
are you sure it's no more than a game?
when no-one feels compelled to play it fair
the vict'ry goes to those who do not care

from gentle spirit to that ever lovin' touch
there is always one more paper-cut

the final hour of unpaid overtime
just to reach the minimum wage
it will not do to hang your head and cry
fuck this chapter, never mind the page

from the spirit to that ever healing touch
y'should know to keep that back door shut
t'guard against the occasional bad luck

`til then here is one more paper-cut

one more paper-cut

_________

Rightly

Fantastic @rightly Musically and lyrically, I love it. The victory goes to those who do not care, how sad it is.
You can't go back. You can't stand still. If the thunder don't get you. The lightning will.

I ALWAYS look for your material @rightly . Your production and writing style is inspirational to be in its uniqueness and its quality.

This is another one from you that demands attention to the lyrics and how they ride the instrumentation to get the full feel of the song.

@rightly   The thing about paper cuts is they hurt like hell.  This line paints a clear picture in my mind.

lol!

I was exhausted and feeling sorry for myself
Then came this cruel prick of infinite pain.
It sort of put things into perspective.

Thanks for commenting!

I'm imagining a large mindless machine that produces nothing but hot air with knobs and gears and levers, pulleys and steam valves - run by a thousand emotionally vapid workers in the same uniform, with the same empty stare pushing the oversized levers and turning the gears while a receptionist sits in a front room with a thin paper mask of a smile and offers a pen to sign for a contract of employment in such an establishment. You hesitate as you look out the window into the large foray of nothingness. The contract offers you the terms, 'at threat of death you will comply.'  You sign and are given a badge - it reads 'Steam Making specialist'. You smile back, pleased to have employment and start working your contract.

A perceptive, relevant insight on a sad and boorish predicament.
Food for thought for my own writing!
Great stuff!!
