about

Inspired by model-turned-artist Lee Miller*, her turbulent relationship with Man Ray, her traumatic career as a war photographer, and her subsequent retirement in the English countryside.

(*not to be confused with Trainspotter-turned-Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller.)

lyrics

A flash, a kiss
Your lip and his
A home

An eye, a line
To keep the time
Alone

A clash, a note
A slash, a throat
The red

A Man, a Ray
A girl afraid
The dead

You never told your son what you did in the war
He had to find out from all these boxes you kept hidden in the attic
In the attic
In the attic
In the attic
In the attic...

A flash, a kiss
Your lip and his
A home

An eye, a line
To keep the time
Alone

A clash, a note
A slash, a throat
The red

A Man, a Ray
A girl afraid
The dead
The dead
The dead
The dead...
