about

An alternative ending for George Orwell's 1984

lyrics

Bury her beneath the bougainvillea
where the sunlight leaks
through the leaves like god's granting her reprieve
She'll wait there for me

Before we met before I spared her from this mess
In the cold night she
walked and slept the streets like migrating spinafex
and they did nothing

Bury her beneath the bougainvillea
the petals slowly
drift and drip resting sweetly on her lips
that won't betray me

Like it's vines she crept over the members of government
their lust she kept
until the trap was set and then their hands ran up her dress
she ran her hands round their necks

oh Julia

Bury her beneath the bougainvillea
far from their reach
let the dirt compress what air's left in her chest
they won't make her speak
