nobody searches
nobody cares somehow
when the loving that you’ve wasted
comes raining from a hapless cloud

then i might stop and look upon your face
disappear in the sweet sweet gaze
see the living that surrounds me
dissipate in a violent blaze

can’t you see what you’ve done to my heart and soul
this is a wasteland now.

the song references british serial killer housewife rosemary west, although the “rosemary” in the lyrics may be a reference to a road in clacton-on-sea, birthplace of paul banks.

rosemary pauline “rose” west (born 29 november 1953 in barnstaple, devon) is a british serial killer, now an inmate at hmp low newton, brasside, durham, after being convicted of 10 murders in 1995. her husband fred, who committed suicide in prison while awaiting trial, is believed to have collaborated with her in the torture and murder of at least 10 young women, many at the couple’s home in gloucester, gloucestershire, england. fred west is known to have carried out 12 murders. rosemary west had no involvement in the first 2; she had not met fred at the time.

rosemary west and her husband were convicted of sexual assault in january 1973. they were fined for indecent assault of caroline roberts, who escaped the couple’s home after being attacked and reported them to the police. the wests’ typical pattern was to pick up girls from bus stops in and around gloucester and imprison them in their home for several days before killing them.

she also periodically worked as a prostitute, often while her husband watched. one of the most frequent visitors was her father, by whom she had been abused from a young age. she was often pregnant and was the mother of 8 children: heather anne (17 october 1970), mae (1 june 1972), stephen andrew (august 1973), tara (december 1977), louise (november 1978), barry (june 1980), rosemarie (april 1982) and lucyanna (july 1983). 5 of these were fathered by fred west, while tara, rosemarie and lucyanna were fathered by west indian clients who had used rosemary as a prostitute.

it is reported that, even after the birth of her 4th child, rosemary’s father would still visit her for sex, and would then have sex with fred’s daughter anne-marie.

you’re weightless, semi-erotic
you need someone to take you there
saying, “hey why can’t we look the other way?”
why can’t we just play the other game?
why can’t we just look the other way?

+: what a great show they did @ coachella 2011.
