"Whirlpool's End" as written by and Paul John Weller....
The sun came out & hung above
Over our heads but far enough to see
A bomb exploding in another town
Children choking on a poison cloud
While on the streets, where lovers once walked,
Side by side in idle talk
Bullets fall like unholy rain
People change as the panic sets in,
A frightened baby by her dead mother's side
In a brutal world where there's nowhere
To run, hide or cry

Now nothing feels the same way,
Feels like it's changing again,
Upon a street with no name
It's hard to find it again

I ran as fast as my feet could fly
Down country lanes where I took my time-
Time like a hound snapping at my heels
I got past thinking so I could feel,
Feels like a film playing in my head
And I kept rolling down green Surrey hills,
In Spring

Now nothing feels the same way
Feels like I'm changing again
Upon a street with no name
It's hard to find me again,
The sun came out & hung above, over our heads
But far enough to see

    General Commentbest track on Weller's best album. As a man born and bred in Surreyits also always nice to ensure the homeland gets a mention!

    General CommentThe descent into madness. The song speeds up as it happens and slows down as he comes out, into the Surry Hills in Spring.

    Awesome song.
