Suburban Surface (Never Do Art)

from by Kalahari Surfers

/

lyrics

your words have vague meaning
ambiguous clown on a tight wire
tangled emotions
force you again to my room
where you claim boredom
talking pre-dawn police raid-politics new pass law brutality -we salute the smouldering civilian and wrap a building in District 6 in red cloth - art while the kettle boils - to reassure us of bourgeois suburban
stability - we talk on and on - words change order - colour - smouldering colours - predawn disappearance - suburban talk raids in six cloth red district salute pass law citizens wrapped pass law citizens wrapped while police brutality boils over - never do art - w.ony 1982
