"My Guernica" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
I'm small and I'm tired
I'm blurred to bits and wired
I'm nothing in this universe
Nothing but pieces of dust

Appearing in more repeats
The mirror man has seen defeat
Hide away, be old and grey
Alfred J Pru frock would be proud of me

Keep it together hold it together
Keep it together hold it together

Little someone in my own little Guernica
Sleep so heavy that it's out of the question
Little someone in my own little Guernica
Wake up and pour myself another ice-breaker

Going now so happy and so loose
Making bigger holes in my stomach
Losing losing split down the middle
With no end and no beginning

I'm small and I'm tired
I'm blurred to bits and wired
I'm nothing in this universe
Nothing but pieces of dust

Keep it together hold it together
Keep it together hold it together

Little someone in my own little Guernica
Sleep so heavy that it's out of the question
Little someone in my own little Guernica
Wake up and pour myself another ice-breaker

Keep it together hold it together
Keep it together hold it together

Little someone in my own little Guernica
Sleep so heavy that it's out of the question
Little someone in my own little Guernica
Wake up and pour myself another ice-breaker

Ice-breaker
Ice-breaker
Ice-breaker

    General CommentIn case some people don't know who Alfred J. Prufrock is, he's the character in TS Eliot's famous poem 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock', a poem that exhibits melancholy sentiments and fears about the modern age, growing old, etc. that really suit these lyrics. This song is kinda hard to figure out the meaning of precisely, but it sounds like just another one about Nicky feeling insignificant in the grand scope of the universe and feeling depressed about this and about getting older too maybe.
    "In my own little Guernica" -- I guess would translate to "my own little warzone", scene of chaotic and confused misery or despair or something.

    General Commentthe title is a reference to Picasso's "Guernica" depicting, unless i'm mistaken, a scene from the spanish civil war when a whole lotta people were killed.
