this is the follow on from control. you do need to read that one to understand the last line of each verse. its the refrain i’ve wanted to use since i thought of the character and i’m really glad it was able to fit with the rest.

 

Chaos
like a spider he crawls on the web of the world.
in his hands are shears that he clicks and clacks open.
the raggedy man and his mischievous ways.
snipping at strings, snipping at strings, snipping at strings.
he smells like petroleum with flapjacks and sweat
his clothes are mismatched and the colours are random
and his beard is untrimmed for he’s far too busy
snipping at strings, snipping at strings, snipping at strings.
he knows that hes chased by the angry control,
and the ropes that he cuts will be fixed very soon.
but he’ll keep on going for it’s what he enjoys.
snipping at strings, snipping at strings, snipping at strings.
so when things go wrong and there’s trouble in the air
when chaos reigns supreme and there’s darkness around.
listen for the noise of a trickster hard at work.
snipping at strings, snipping at strings, snipping at strings.
