Twilight Furniture

This song is by This Heat and appears on the album This Heat (1979).

Surveilling the twilight furniture
Telescope pressed to patched eye
Love is blind, so we are told
Don't pull the wool over our eyes
Shuttered eye, metal eye
Iron brain, eye and brain

Shapes policed and disinfected
Searchlights, stark towers and dead sky
Tommy guns, typewriters aimed and loaded
Fountain pen and a point three five
Careless talk costs lives
Careless love costs lives
Cease-fire ends at midnight
Curfew starts at ten
Unclear vision our sooth
Nuclear fission our friend
We must shake him by the hand
