Song of the Day – “Carnation” – The Jam

That Paul Weller knows how to bring a party down.

If you gave me a fresh carnation
I would only crush its tender petals
With me you’ll have no escape
And at the same time there’ll be nowhere to settle.
And if you’re wondering by now who I am
Look no further than the mirror –
Because I am the Greed and Fear
And every ounce of Hate in you.

Seriously, these words become more accurate with each passing year, as online social media encourages people to score points with a barb rather than try to understand our neighbors.
