Collecting 'The Collector' in rain branches

Chasing ambulances  
Cos’ smell of hospitals  
Is an aphrodisiac.  

Disinfect  
Infect  
Near Perfect.  

Enticed by chloroform  
Living a life of sleep  
In cradles of infirmary  
Call 999…999…999  
And tell them ‘all’s not fine’  
It’s a crime around here to be sleeping.  
 
“Knock knock.”  
“Who’s there?”  
“The night nurse to surprise  
Now open your eyes.”  
 
Distinct  
Infect  
Almost perfect.  
 
Chasing ambulances  
Stuck in traffic  
Always at amber  
Driving through red rain  
watch the tyres bleeding  
Lights flashing  
Outside the bedroom  
Infected.  
 
Dragged from fountain of youth  
The BBC report  
‘They all drowned.’  
We know we’re already dead  
And this is why  
This is why  
This is why…..  
 
*3 of The Collector (excluding cleaning operative & Mauritian friend). Split due to musical differences i.e. we were gloriously shite. Simply faded into obscurity (not even a Top 50 hit in the Faroe Islands). As much does. And much should. Only time I sing now is for Uma ;)

Oh dear. Dragged from thinning memory. Funny what fragments filter through black box of memories. Pleased to say, no audios exist. These remained with the drummer who disappeared into South France...
