Not quite sure where this came from. I think I’d been listening to The Small Faces at the time and wanted to come up with a ‘characters’ song. Probably nicks a bit of style from Dylan too.

Zeroes and Ones


Joe the postman talks about
The fingers he can’t do without
And all the while he’s trying to
Set them free

Frank the butcher’s thinking of
Vladimir Nabakov
I wonder if he knows
It’s really me

I’m the one with changing eyes
Zeroes and ones can’t sympathise
No matter how hard you try
You can’t go back again

Teacher Sue is looking for
A changing kind of carnivore
She’ll never stop until she
Knows its name

The Silent One, our leader
Is everywhere and nowhere
I can’t believe we’ve followed
Him this way

But I’m the one with changing eyes
Zeroes and ones can’t sympathise
No matter how hard you try
You can’t go back again

There
Is a place
Where all the buttons work

It
Doesn’t end
On arrival in Dunkirk

Why
Can’t you see
How far we’ve come?



There’s
No looking back
The past can’t be undone

Alexander The Great
Is trying to turn back the hate
Before it devours him
Totally

Churchill’s aunt is on the phone
A little accident-prone
She might need some tea
And sympathy

‘Cause I’m the one with changing eyes
Zeroes and ones can’t sympathise
No matter how hard you try
You can’t go back again

Yao Ming went round the back
His dribble style under attack
But he ain’t the kind to hang
His head in shame

Sergeant Smith has packed away
His armies for another day
No-one wanted to play
His game

But I’m the one with changing eyes
Zeroes and ones can’t sympathise
No matter how hard you try
You can’t go back again

But I’m the one with changing eyes
Zeroes and ones can’t sympathise
No matter how hard you try
You can’t go back again
