about

We remember the same events differently. Petrocelli was the first detective series I saw that looked at a crime from different POVs.

lyrics

The feeling of rain, a bottle-green shame
Filling my nylon shorts again
Setting up shop in a cardboard box
Wondering why no passing trade
Painting a yacht in an empty room
Riding my milk float all the way down to the Lane
But Gerard Ball’s out today
And Jimmy Ruffin is getting all the radio play

So what became of the unbroken heart
That sat on a buffet pumping away
Hiding a whole in the kitchen floor
Hoping these buyers don’t offer any more?
Wath-Upon-Derne’s endless sales on TV
And a lambent memory of falling asleep
Hugging an eyeless bear
Dreaming of kindness and some form of encouragement

Weebles may wobble
Can you be sure they won’t fall down?
Scary as fuck in the sinister treehouse
Owned by the pudgy next-door clown
Who runs his Wide Games for all the young boys
While the red ants swarm the pavement
And yesterday’s rose-petal perfume starts to smell oh-so cruel
Yesterday’s rose perfume starts to smell oh-so cruel
