For whatever reason you refuse to feel this space within
To know what’s insanity, to really know it
Whatever your particular anaesthetic is
That you hold onto so desperately
The thing that makes you think you know who you are
Whatever that thing is you allow you to keep you sane
Your ace in the hole
The psyche that keeps you from trying to guess
What your pimp has in store for you…
Whatever keeps you from screaming out at this moment
In absolute and sheer horror,
Whatever you fuck your brain with
Whatever that is, whatever that is…
It’s a lie. It’s a LIE!

I'm surprised I haven't commented on this one, I've seen it before, this is truly awesome.
A powerful SP, one of your classics! BV!!

outstanding!

Love it, the water, the expression, the white of your eye. There is something quite threatening yet sensual about this picture...

Can't do anything other than echo all the other comments... -- wonderful piece of work... (V)
Dominic Kite06-Jul-2006 23:45
That's exceptional, from the water, the lighting, and the pose, right down to the focus. Once again I find myself doffing my hat!
Guest 04-Jul-2006 04:41
Very bold and risky. I wish I had your guts.

Can't really add to much more to already has been written. Superb.

Stu03-Jul-2006 12:23
A cross between Jose Mourinho and Shane McGowan, surely! Excellent shot.

i want to comment but it seems so futile to try and put words to what i think, mainly because i don't think i can do so successfully. a "wow, this is so powerful and intense" comment would be true, but not enough. the complexity of my emotions on seeing this and reading the lyrics (oh god, those lyrics) is too enormous to describe. maybe it just calls for a "...".
Chris02-Jul-2006 21:16
Perfect marriage of lyric and image, but it needs nothing. Powerful shot, my bruddah. Vote.
Steve H02-Jul-2006 20:28
Lawrence has said most of it already. Truly immense, so powerful - vote

Hope you put lots of towels down! I did a selfbaptism too when i was coating my face in other household stuff - you have a much nicer complexion!This dark and long series continues to be peerless in its variation! Fine work. www.pbase.com/dravlinbood/image/62780481
Guest 02-Jul-2006 04:17
The very definition of intensity. I could interpret this so many ways. Techincally, it's awesome - tack sharp, great colours and saturation (glad it's colour and not B/W which I don't think would add much) and perfectly stopped motion of the water. Artistically, it's great also - very very expressive, the emotion leaps off the page. What I like about it is that I'm not entirely sure what to read from the subjects eyes as it's a mix of anger, fear, emotion, realisation even. The text answers some of that tho. Anyway, finally, from a commercial perspective I should think this has great potential. I see a Nike or Adidas logo somewhere next to this on a billboard with the words "what are you made of" :). Awesome work mate. Gmv
