I was writing my Roy book and playing this song from his first album. It is really nice to reacquaint myself. Such a great album and song.
This is a song about Roy’s rejection of the values of society – the capitalist greed and acquisition of wealth instead of experiencing life.
It’s full of such interesting drug references. A poetic song of social comment. It’s good to have songs full of imagery, meaning and observation.
Meanwhile, the polystyrene obelisks rule.
