This song is relatively self-explanatory. Obvious J.W. Dunne associations etc.


I sat on the sofa with Palmer,
The Night Nurse untimely kick in
Then Palmer turned onto the wrestling
The start had commenced to begin.

There's two kinds of people in this world
One sort pathologic divide
The people on earth into two kinds
The other sort don't

I'll sat in the tea shoppe with Palmer
We talked about J.W. Dunne
I substitute mustard for butter
And scoffed as he chokes on his scone

A disc to a specification
Projected say ten years time
The record assuming its amplic form
Subsequent to its decline

I'll sit on the airstrip with Palmer
And wolf down my poached egg on toast
Then help him erecting a deckchair
Taking two hours at the most

Awake in my threadbare pyjamas
Considering the distance between
The past has impended
The present has gone
The future is already been
