Long May the Night

Your hand in mine
We race the clock
And run against the rain.

Reorganize the bricks inside
The monsters we’ll create.

I say the words and make it true
You learn the lines by heart.

The calendar begins its work
Those days are numbered here

It’s changing you
A little each day
So long may the night be
Before you don’t need me

So while I am the guardian
You are my angel.

But the offering has disappeared
The halo has been dimmed.

You say the words and they’re untrue
This day will break my heart.

It’s changing you
A little each day
So long may the night be
Before you leave me.

It’s changing you
A little each day
It’s changing you…

"It’s a particular feeling, and you know the one. Night sky, smokestacks, street-lights, shouts. Office towers turned into mirror walls, and trees’ leaves gone grey in the dark. Receivers’ music is the dense, noir melancholy of electric guitar and electronics; it’s the lull and lullaby of Marzinotto’s voice. It’s alienation, hope, and back-lit dream..."
-Sean Michaels (2014 Giller Prize Winner)
