about

Bedsit life. Reading Algren. Wrapping your clothes in plastic before you cook bacon on the hotplate.

lyrics

So many blue notes, it’s hard to hear to the true notes
I’m pushing green totes, beneath the Brompton Road

Just someone in boots, trying to go unnoticed
A sandrich, a Marlboro’ red, then out through the back door
Fight off the demons but the ones inside remain
Sweaty terror dries as salty pain

One room and roadside, with nowhere to wash or to hide
Clothes wrapped in plastic to stave off the smell of the taps

Tomato puree, the only thing to eat today
I feel the hot breath of ma bête in the laundrette

Just someone in boots, trying to go unnoticed
A sandrich, a Marlboro’ Red, then out through the back door
Fight off the demons but the ones inside remain
What’s that ringing in your ears?

They’re calling for you
No one but you

Have you got no home to go to?
