Batten down the hatches

Batten down the hatches

Remember that autumn, October 16?
From Cornwall to Chelmsford
Concarneau to Kent
We walked through allotments
My hands in my sleeves
We stepped over roof tiles and telegraph poles

How can you plan ahead
When you wake up with a tree in your bedroom?
How can you save your name Michael,
When the press take your words out of context like that?
