World's Own Eyes

from by You Barbarians

  • Hand-Made Metallic Digipak Compact Disc
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Each cover is printed using striking copper, red and gold metallic foils onto black card. They are then cut, folded and glued with the cover image windowed in the front panel. Lyrics are beneath the transparent CD tray and credits on the facing page.

    I (Dave) print and assemble each case by hand. The design is by Danica Prowse.

    This printing technique is very variable and a degree of distressing/imperfections are expected as part of the process. Numbers are limited simply by the availability of materials and the time it takes to make these.

Cold winds sting my eyes when I catch too long a view & feel that breeze of time. How can I account for that I’m just the x & y of waking life & the visible band of light? They’re the world’s own eyes as much as they are mine. When they close we lose each other. It’s all time’s history as known just to me. When they stop they drop together. Before a single breath was taken, seas of rock & iron, illuminated by third generation fire. The metals & the stones which we use to say ‘forever’ are only here because even the stars can die. Won’t you pity the boy? Won’t you honour those immortal thoughts? Before the lightning got its thunder & every hour its number. Won’t you for fire’s sake? Won’t you for what is made & what would break? Hold my eyes open just somehow. Don’t let me miss an hour. Won’t you just spare me this fate? ‘Cause I’ve been so fucking scared as I’ve felt the pull temporal rope ‘round my neck. “Cause all I know is in my own head. All of time what’s seen or said & it’s never the second I’m dead
