Hot In The House (free) 06:17 video
It was mere folly… I didn’t mark it there’s more here than there seems… I don’t like it 50,000 wild flutes blow up a storm there’s someone within us, someone amongst us someone who knows what frightens and thrills us there’s laughter behind you and someone is crying wild dogs are running through dry riverbeds Go down to the town, down to the town Go down to the town, down to the town where they never work all their lives so they just lie about lost until knives cut the skins from their backs the butchers, the bakers, the nightmare makers all lost till they stammer out there’s answers for life Go down to the town, down to the town He loves his little children, he waits in their bedrooms merging with furniture, hiding in playthings He comes down, he comes down the father of fear with a family to feed collector, reactor, collator, relater sheds tears, he sheds skins… he is here surrounded by wild men and ghosts and wild boys he is wise, he is panic, he is fear We are tense we cannot sleep we pull wool from the backs of sheep o hot in your houses and stained by dead horses situations repeated like films of your past like babies in baskets, like rats in the rushes Bou Jeloud is searching for secrets inside He loves little children, he waits in their bedrooms merging with furniture, hiding in playthings
