about

with apologies to any tory voters, this was written at the height of the first lockdown of 2020 when things were getting to me a bit

lyrics

Waking from forgotten dreams
I took my bike from where it leans
And cycled to a place that’s warm
Not far from where I was born
The trees were heavy as I rode
I cycled with a heavy load
Of worries from the day before
The stress and strain my muscles tore
But the sun began to ease
My thoughts were taken on the breeze
And though my motion was alone
The trusty movements took me

Home to a place I belong
Home if I’m right or I’m wrong
Home to the place where she lives
Home where there’s love and there’s someone who always forgives

I took my phone, and tapped the screen
I liked the posts and swiped the memes
I saw another lie writ large
And lack of shame from those in charge

I tried to hide from it all
I tried so hard to recall
How it feels when I come

Home where the world stays outside
Home where it’s safe and I hide
Hide from events and the truth
Hold back the tide of today with four walls and a roof


As I sat to watch the news
I felt it tighten like a noose
The grip of what we have become
Corrupted by this Tory scum
The bigots and the racists won
Their hatred has eclipsed the sun
It doesn’t shine here anymore
Where cruelty reigns from shore to shore
And I just do not recognise
Where I was raised with open eyes
And where there is a house I own
Where all this stands is this my home?

Where we whitewash the past
Where our mental empire’s built to last
Home where we vilify the poor
And leave hungry children wanting more
Home where our myths win the vote
Home where we live in the comfort of lies that we wrote.
