The Canadian brought us snow
and Lucky Strikes for John to smoke
A Thursday night with powercuts
in mountain socks, burning books
We watched the Jetsons for too long
saw robots in our sleep
Naval lights from Amsterdam
through the kettle steam
The Jesus glow of Calor Gas
illuminates the frosted glass
The windowsill, a battle scene
of Airfix kits and Disney Queens
Born too early, wake up too late
Minds of Chomsky but low birth weight
Sleeping beside, treat us like eggs
Box-jellyfish light; tinsel legs

    General CommentVery nice song, no idea what the lyrics are about, though. Travelling? By boat? As a child? Anyway, nice to see the name of the city I practically live in.

    Many of PM's songs just have this mysterious atmosphere... I like!!!!11~
