We’re forging energy in jets of storm
The surface reaving from the turbines form
The fire bursting in unnumbered swarms
When all we did was lie to Evelyn

We spin the engine like a white-hot sun
We’re burning fuel by the megaton
The other vessels coming on
All we can do is cry for Evelyn

There stars shine out like eyes
All round is wonder

The farthest limits close within our reach
But hope extinguished as the shell is breached
A tear discorded by a prowling leech
(And) all because we lied to Evelyn

We set a final course to bring us home
Our hands contracting on the frozen chrome
Until we see the shimmer of her throne
And we return at last to Evelyn

Nameless cosmic forces have led our hands and throats to articulate a new lifeform, a hitherto unknown being, an empyrean music, for whom our souls have been set to labour over, its earthly avatar guitar, drum and synthesizer, the clarion call of voices raised together. And together we can reach a higher form of existence. That is not Saint Jude’s goal, it is its inevitability. ... more
