"You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it..." LENSED: IMAGE IS EVERYTHING
Lost in the high street, where the dogs run Roaming suburban boys Mothers got a hairdo to be done She says they're too old for toys Stood by the bus stop with a felt pen In this suburban hell And in the distance a police car To break the suburban spellLet's take a ride and run with the dogs tonight In suburbia, you can't hide
Run with the dogs tonight In suburbia Break the window by the town hall Listen, the siren screams There in the distance, like a roll call Of all the suburban dreams I only wanted something else to do but hang around In suburbia...
Words: Pet Shop Boys - Suburbia (1986). Pictures: the photography of Mikel Marton.
