I have a lot of love for Mike Skinner (i.e. The Streets). So I feel inspired to post some ‘Skinnerisms’ sporadically for the next few weeks on here. Just because. First one, and it seems appopriate, is from ‘Turn The Page’, an epic tune that opened his first album, Original Pirate Material back in 2002.
All stare, eyes glazed
Garage burnt down, the fire raged
For 40 days and in 40 ways
But through the blaze they see it fade
The sea of black, the beaming heat on their faces
Then a figure emerges from the wastage
Eyes transfixed with a piercing gaze
One hand clutching a sword raised to the sky
They wonder how, they wonder why
The sky turns white, it all becomes clear
They felt lifted from their fears
They shed tears in the light
