prodigal son
(electronic)



you may be a star in your own mind

but you’re greatly deluded in mine

i heard reports that you drink

and you take drugs most of the time



and that your life is in danger

and that you were involved in a crime



is it over, is it over

will you come home now

is it over, is it over

don’t you let me down



you’re the architect of your own excess

join the queue at the start of the line

in a wilderness with an empty sky

the clouds are gone and the desert is dry



the prodigal son is returning

he shouldn’t be walking the streets

they tell me that children are starving

he’s got everything that he needs



is it over, is it over

will you come home now

is it over, is it over

is it over now



won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come, won’t you come home



won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come, won’t you come home



won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come home now

won’t you come, won’t you come home

comment
at a drawn out seven minutes, this is the least tuneful song on the twisted tenderness album and a bit of a curate’s egg. the five remixes that appeared on singles and promos don’t add a great deal to this nascent appeal, and it’s best approached within the context of the lp, where it sits between the more digestible late at night and when she’s gone. all six versions were included on twisted tenderness::deluxe in 2001.
