CRABS UP NORTH

Where the weary give a big fat sigh
Cats and dogs play side by side
The spinning of an old 45
A billion glued to their tv screens

wave goodbye to a paper boat
as it sails across your telescope
a crab’s eye moves back and forth
as we make our way on the road up north

How can we stand by it?
We’re on our own
I know there’s something wrong with it
from when we were born

Challenger crew are still walking around
Astronauts with a puzzled frown
Flat earth pictures through a fishbowl lens
vomit comet goes up and down

A wanna be pirate with a wooden sword
Stanley Kubrick’s looking pretty bored
wires and hairspray n make pretend
Capricorn one was a big fat clue

How can we stand by it?
We’re on our own
I know there’s something wrong with it
from when we were born

come on a take a look
Do you really wanna know?
Go down the rabbit hole
How far does it go?

you can’t say anything
cos you’re gonna get ridiculed
you can’t say anything
cos you’re gonna look like a total fool

How can we stand by it?
We’re on our own
I know there’s something wrong with it
from when we were born

(M. Carr)
