"The emotions that are on this record are very abstract, out of focus, fragmented, its words are gray. But that is exactlywhat it should be."

"Promenade"

Earth, sky, scenery
Is she coming back again
Men of straw, snooker hall
Words that build or destroy
Dirt, dry, bone, sand and stone

Barbed wire fence cut me down
I'd like to be around
In a spiral staircase to the higher ground

And I, like a firework, explode
Roman candle lightening lights up the sky

In cracked streets, trample underfoot
Side step, sidewalk
I see you stare into the space
Have I got closer now, behind the face

Oh, tell me, Cherry you dance with me
Turn me around tonight
Up through the spiral staircase
To the higher ground

Slideshow of a seaside town
Coca-cola, football
Radio, radio, radio, radio, radio, radio
