THE TRUCE OF TWILIGHT
Enjoy it while it lasts because soon it will be different Pernicious playgrounds and new age cultism Outbreaks of optimism in care homes of England The famous goodwill dumped in your fly tips so… Go raise your idols pull them out the marshes Go give them sanctuary put them in your new builds Because everything is now a live stream the noise is rising Curtain twitchers can take out their sunscreen It looks like it’s come to rest The truce of twilight the echoes of the Horned Ooser In a Southend caravan park from shore to pierhead The twelve that follow on they are camping on the cliff top They not dreaming just looking to midnight Go fill your pockets now with tomorrow’s landfill The Lions and Unicorns are sleeping out in shop doors Outside dreamland glassy eyed demography The smell of cut grass the swallows are returning And it looks like they’ve come to rest Bring me my shell box and my submachine gun Because you can’t get over anything quite like this Where the water is darker than the mirror of the sky And Demis Roussos playing “Forever” on the waterslide Conscripted into ranks Look what we have done The feckless and the lazy Look what we’ve become Chicken collector man Look what we have done The fortune teller she sits with the starlings Look what we have done Oh the mass elopers turn to exhale Look what we have done In the dance schools of England Look what we have done
