Poptones

Album: Metal Box (1979)
  • Drive to the forest in a Japanese car
    The smell of rubber on country tar
    Hindsight done me no good
    Standing naked in this back of the woods

    The cassette played pop tones

    I can't forget the impression you made
    You left a hole in the back of my head
    I don't like hiding in this foliage and peat
    It's wet and I'm losing my body heat

    The cassette played pop tones

    This bleeding heart
    Looking for bodies
    Nearly injured my pride
    Praise picnicking in the British countryside
