All That's Left in Any Case, Is Advertising Space

This song moves me. As I sit in piles of work in the office alone, before opening time. It's quite a beautiful scene. Sad, but asthetic. In a sort of neutral, this is so not related to anything way. Just the peace and quiet and a great soundtrack.

Going home to dig out the guitar. Haven't had such a vibe from a song since Dishwalla's "Angels and Devils". We (at least the TFYE girls) all know how important that song was. It's like you know there's something deep behind a song like that, you just can't tell quite what, but it's there, giving all that subtext. Something about subtext, that stuff - you don't need to know what it is, you just need to know that it's there, bolstering everything around it, giving the whole affair it's reason for being.

"Advertising Space"
-- Robbie Williams


There's no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart
When it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you

Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Saying somethin'

There's no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
They're still fighting over
Everything you left over

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

Through your eyes
The world was burning
Please be gentle
I'm still learning
You seemed to say
As you kept turning up

They poisoned you with compromise
At what point did you realise
Everybody loves your life
But you

Special agent for the man
Through Watergate and Vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Did you think the CIA did

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistake
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

I've seen your daughter
Man she's cute
I was scared but I wanted to
Boy she looks a lot like you
