The place I love is a million miles away,
Its too far for the eye to see
Still its me at least, and you can't come there
No one is allowed at all
Only animals that love, will always, only, ever could be
And its always at the back of my mind.
The place I love is overgrown now
With beautiful moss and colorful flowers
And goldfish that swim in a pool, there's a small brick wall

With neon lighting controlled by lightning
I'm making a stand against the world
there's those who would hurt us if they heard.

The place I love is no where near here,
Not within a mile of those trendy dos,
Where dogs bodies pick you up, and graciously give you a lift,

With cherished thoughts and bitterness.
I'm making a stand against the world,
there's those who would hurt us if they heard
And that's always in the back of my mind

    General CommentWeller mmntioned this in an interview (MoJO, May 08) when he was talking about his affection for the countryside. I think the most obvious clue to that is "The place I love is nowhere near here, not within a yard of those trendo do's" and the beautiful moss and clourful flowers.

    The sound alone makes me imagine a sunny day in the sticks. Don';t know why, it just does.

    But yeah, perhaps also about a safe place in the back of your mind where it seems no one can hurt you. I think in the third verse there's a bit of a nod to imaginary friends too, who 'pcik you up' in contrast to the rather cynical real world.

    That 'safe place' could certainly be one's memories of the countryside anyway!
