Our lips are sealed

Our Lips are Sealed, My Dog Sighs, 2015

Being a lucky soul I picked up a My Dog Sighs message in a bottle on Friday evening. 

A tiny face with sealed lips in a tiny bottle. But the news from Paris later on Friday made me question the relevance, like Art doesn't matter when this stuff is happening in the Real World.  

Then I remembered what the tiny face with sealed lips was part of. So I reread the words of FunBoy3's Our Lips Are Sealed and it all made sense:

There's a weapon that we can use
In our defense, silence
Well, just look at them, look right through them
That's when they disappear, that's when we lose the fear

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

It doesn't matter what they say
No one's listening anyway
Our lips are sealed

Thank you Fun Boy Three and My Dog Sighs for giving me a perspective.
