"The Fan and the Bellows" as written by Mark Burgess, David Fielding, John Lever and Reginald Smithies....
A Beechers Brook is low
A hurdle at which greater men have fallen
She manipulates
Steals my mind and hides it in the garden

[Chorus]
But now, only love can bring me down
Somehow, somehow love must bring me down
I become the fan and the bellows

The cupid masturbates
Absent of all thought and of all reason
Shoots me in the back
I think perhaps it must be shooting season

[Chorus]

Not me, not me!

    My InterpretationIt's about falling in love despite your better judgement. More specifically, the song is about the old Victorian romantic sensibilities, and a man who can't fight his feelings for a woman. The imagery of the brecher's brook, cupid, the fan and the bellows are all meant to evoke the Victorian era.
