Lyrics

Prothero Road

First time round you caught out compressing lifetimes on a page
You made me drive all night, blew out my pilot light so I got blown right out the door
Next time round saw me peering in while you were standing by the shore
You set your jury rig, unleashed a demon pig so I lay broken on the waves
Can you please tell me the quickest way back home?
I’m bone tired and weary — but I can’t miss the fall of Rome
So take me back to Prothero Road
Then one time you met me late at night and you were naked in the rain
We danced up on the roof, then with a magic poof! You disappeared right down the drain
Two years out on a steaming moor we shivered in the Northern cold
Closed down the motorway with a shotgun, babe; we never did what we was told
Can you please tell me the quickest way back home?
I’m bone tired and weary — but I can’t miss the fall of Rome
So take me back to Prothero Road
Long time gone you brought me back to life, there you were standing by the stage
You stole my Theremin, went down on Sin-D Sin while I was dancing in my cage
But Oh My Dear there’s so much more to fear now that the Bogey Man is gone
Not underneath the bed, just living in my head or out there lurking in the dawn
Can you please tell me the quickest way back home?
I’m bone tired and weary — but I can’t miss the fall of Rome
So take me back to Prothero Road
