this tack is part of a 3 song medley

part of the Dowry EP, written on Dowry Place, on Hotwells Road in Bristol, first performed in the scout hut, Bristol, recorded by Phil Dodd on Hermitage Street, Cheltenham.


Freedom for the boy
who burned down the playground.
He left you with matches
to kick the can in.

Playing in the field
seeing who could trip who.
Hiding in the bushes.
In the sloping buses.

A garage full of snakes
dared to go climb the roof.
Climb the grazing roof
and run your freezing hands
against the blue door.


from Dowry, released May 11, 2011
