    Even on the darkest day. Even on the longest night. Even when there seems to be no hope left.
    Even when you surf the channels and see only monsters.
    Even little you, little me, pacing our way through a forest of dark menacing shadows wondering if the great creator had simply sneezed upon the candle we need to guide us through to kinder pastures.
    Even now my friends, there is an Angel In The Detail.

    An album two years in the making. There were a few diversions, a few questions never answered, and a cloud full of value moments. The latter have been preserved for you here and many will be related live in the forthcoming Legendary Pink Dots’ 40th Anniversary Tour. In fact we turn 40 in August 2020 , but I guess there is no harm in starting things early.

lyrics

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Beggars can be choosers underneath that crooked line
where all that is disposable can decompose,
and lie there for a week, a month , a year.
The low-down  scavengers don’t care,
 they’ll  fight for crumbs
and leave us  here to catch the mood and feed your fear.

I chased so many ambulances,rode a few red lights,
I witnessed life’s cruel consequences right before my eyes.
I crawled through corridors of carnage for the perfect spot.
Swerved this way, that way, then the other,
as the sniper shot me through my spinning wheels.
I greased the palms of psychopaths, dictators, 
casual maniacs
Met Hitler in a sleazy bar,  I slapped him on the back …whispered “Thank you…." 

And yes I sold the sequel.
In my book we’re all created equal, 
we can sink or soar like  eagles. 
Me? l ‘ll keep it legal as I’m zooming in.

Who are you to sit there on your throne and say I have no depth?
Who are you to hide behind that stone and keep me at arm’s length?
You, who would not test the water. You….who will not taste the wine.
You, who craves death twice resampled, aired at half past nine
If it’s getting all too heavy swap me for a snack.You may change the channel but still you’re just a rat …on a spinning wheel. Rats trapped  on a spinning  wheel. 
We shall keep revolving …
We’ll spin until that setting sun’s been snatched with cameras rolling.
Roll on.
