Elbow – Dexter & Sinister lyrics
And I don't know Jesus anymore
And an endless sleep is awaiting me
And I haven't finished yet
And I'm not a dog for the end of days
I'm a bird in a hurricane
With the heaviest heart jackhammering in me
And I don't know Jesus anymore

Unstuck and the whole archipelago is rocking like a suicide pedalo at a high tide
Blazing eyes hey how' d'ya keep your eyes ablaze
In these faith free hope free charity free days

Come back to the light
Come pull on the bullwhip around my heart
Take me to the sea
Let me peel and fade by the seaside
Where dead men go to die
And long standing affairs fizzle in the brine
And everybody stares with Eastwood eyes at the horizon

And I haven't finished yet
Loss is a part of life this long
But Dexter and Sinister?
I've the heaviest heart jackhammering in me
And I don't know Jesus anymore
And I don't know Jesus anymore

    Eastwood eyes? Does this refer to the 'Clint squint' or a fearful glance towards China?. Times are as uncertain now as they ever were. Bring on Brexit for a new begining and a new hope for a calmer future. Who knows, this may be our time again to lead a new economic era.

    The contrast between Right and Left, Light and Dark, Good and Evil. Simple really. The first part of the song is troubled and disjointed and strident whilst the second part of the song is more relaxed as if a relief from tension. Garvey hints that it's about the troubled tense times that are current in the uk. Perhaps there is light around the corner.
