THE TRUCE OF TWILIGHT

Enjoy it while it lasts because soon it will be differentThe Good

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
