"Angle Park" as written by Stuart Adamson and Bruce William Watson....
The autumn howled around the heads
That hung so slack, with lips so red
The blooms had withered leaves were shed
Tongues stuck in jaws sad clowns parade
The crushing whine began its call
And pointed fingers at us all

In Angle Park, the lights are dimmed
The statues grin

In Angle Park
The fountains crack
In Angle Park

The beaten cry behind white dress
The clowns stuck fast upon the mesh
While mothers wring their hands of tears
The spelling books are in arrears
The evil genius hugs his wife
As tiles ring with fear of life
The window fills with beating hearts
Beat on blindly beat it all

In Angle Park, the lights are dimmed
The statues grin

In Angle Park
The fountains crack
In Angle Park

In Angle Park, the lights are dimmed
The statues grin

In Angle Park
The fountains crack
In Angle Park

    General CommentGreat song that deserves a comment even though I'm not at all sure what it's about!

    Many of Stuart Adamson's early lyrics were concerned with the possibilities of nuclear apocalypse which often seemed very real to those of us who were young back then, so I am guessing this lyric may have something to do with Cold War fears paralysing people, and the last verse perhaps urging the listener not to let this stuff stop them from living?
