​Giants

This song is by Slapp Happy/Henry Cow and appears on the album Desperate Straights (1975).

She says she has known moments
When an outer bright and varied
World appears.
"Spots of time" in which inflected
Perception of a sudden clears.
Mindful of time she repairs
To her room at the top of the stairs.
Pestered by Giants who bend
To her window with a will to win
Her hand and turn her head,
She slipped out of her bed
In dread of what her Father said:
"Giants exist to deceive,
They retreat if the're clearly perceived".

Music by:

Anthony Moore.
