On Deep England

Dada Paradox

On Deep England (Ian Roure)

A golden afternoon, pint of mild,
Creased cricket whites
A different history
Made a different present you'd like
Empire declined, industrial rewind,
Reality refined...
Your Deepest dreams have new life
Now you gave up the mental fight
You can almost feel from clouded hills
Your feet alight...
On Deep England

Your fainted form was found
And a tonic was prescribed
Then you saw the vision
And your fainted form revived
Escher-like design, your saviour ever kind
Has graciously resigned...

When you close you eyes
You can see quite clearly
The future comes alive
Like a cartoon on TV...Oh, oh...
When you close your eyes
They've got you easy
Selling to the blind
The world you'd like to see
If you just believe...
