"After Murder Park" as written by and Luke Michael Haines....
esme could you shut the door
and put the oil lamp on the floor
i feel it coming on again
just like it did on saturday
voices after murder park
in the damp in the dark
maybe we should call the law
maybe we should call the child's parents

i'll love you until the end

hi, hello, what have you seen?
god, it's good to hear your voice again
did you miss your brother
darling i will always love you
lying, in a shallow grave
there's a church nearby and a railway
on a bed of mud and wire
esme find out where the child is buried

marry the first born
bury the stillborn
i love you and i always will

we are lying here
waiting to be buried
we are lying here and you're losing
contact with the dead

please don't ask about the future
i am not a fortune teller
i know you're just being civil
but don't make this trivial
uncles i have never seen
only in my own dead dream
on a bed of mud and wire
esme find out where the child is buried

i'll love you until the end

    General CommentThis title track is a sequel to another song in the same album, Unsolved Child Murder. In Unsolved Child Murder, the child went missing but the body was never found. In this sequel someone with psychic powers sensed the dead child's spirits, contacted the police and the child's parents. The parents were finally able to communicate with the dead child through the medium and express their lamentation.

    In some sense this is a rather optimistic ending for a murder story, as the parents fantasized the dead child's spirit to be fortune-telling and talked about the uncle the child never met in his/her lifetime. This is so lively and sincere, and somewhat hilarious.

    This song again consists of mixed perspectives including that of the medium, the dead child's spirit, and the parents.
