Lyrics

Keeping The Curtains Closed
He's been waiting for the bus to come, been waiting there since 3
And when it comes around he will be as happy as a boy can be
But people worry about each other
Some even worry about me

And so he stands at the busstop at the back of the line
And there's too many people and there's not enough time
So now he's keeping the curtains closed

He was waiting for the revolution to rumble down his street
'Coz when it came around
He was sure that we'd all get enough to eat

But at the busstop he's still on that line
And there's too many people and there's not enough time
So he's keeping the curtains closed

And there's no point asking what went wrong
Nothing as far as I can see
He just stood there at the busstop at the back of the line
And there were too many people; there was not enough time
And now he's keeping the curtains closed
He's just keeping the curtains closed
He's just keeping the curtains closed
He's just keeping the curtains closed

Found On

Buy These Records
Fishcotheque
Having ended up on Creation Records, which I took as a bit of a validation, I was keen to get as far away from all those "w" words that had followed my group around. The sessions were chaotic and funny. What disappoints me is that it came out sounding so SMOOTH and tidy. But I like Fishcotheque; I wish there more records as good as it.

Edward's Closet
So you've got a CD player, have you? I've got a headache and an abiding dislike of expensive food crews in dumb baseball hats. I've been in Edward's Closet and he wasnt't in. "That JBC", they mutter at the bus-stop, "turned left at the light a Long Time Ago".
