lyrics

Rough Translation ©Laforge/Randall

It’s a work in progress
With a working title
Unfinished canvas on an artist’s easel
A sketch, a screen test, a vivid detail
Remains untitled but the work is his
A brief description that stands as is

It’s a rough translation
It’s a form of art
Life is far from science
In matters of the heart

There’s no deep resolution
Only occasional solution
Sporadic attempts at construction and revolution
On this journey the game’s set in play
To send us rather wildly on our way
No one’s keeping score
We’re left wanting so much more


It’s a rough translation
Trying to make sense
Of words and explanations
Sense from nonsense
It’s a rough translation
It’s a form of art
Life is far from science
In matters of the heart

And in the planet’s collision
If you are one of the lucky ones
Solace will come with the passing of time
A sense of wonder, pleasure and pain
Promise of clear skies to gets through the rain
Beginning or ending, a story waits to be read

It’s a rough translation
Trying to make sense
Of words and explanations
Sense from nonsense
It’s a rough translation
It’s a form of art
Life is far from science
In matters of the heart
