Happy New Year from Mars!

(aka ‘Martian Dixon’)

Here, the Hot air has nowhere to go

Labrador Dali- Possum House CDI light a cigarette
The smoke rises into my eyes

A line of cars waiting
A line up of lives
Stalled in the passing lane
Passing their chance
To take a chance on life
And on Mars it’s New Years Day

And I’d give anything to break free
From these chains of traffic and responsibility
Longing for the feeling of longing

Search the sky for a sign
Check the back of my eyelids
For the vision I once had
I can’t wait ’til I don’t have to wait anymore
Somewhere, it’s New Years Day
