Such A Pretty Way to End
Such a Pretty Way to End was the first publicly released original track by Cyclocosmia and features TyLean (Attrition) on guest vocals.
I used to have a job reading Social Care files prior to disclosure to courts, the Police or to people who used to be in care. In the basement there were miles upon miles of shelves, full of box files and binders. Every file held a story like this. There were no happy endings. Tens of thousands of ruined lives sitting forgotten in a dusty basement, the victims ignored, the perpetrators moving on with their lives. That basement had a *presence* about it. Nobody would go there alone.
This is not a song about any particular case. But in every town hall, in every dusty record archive, the pain of these people is recorded by the neat, intricate writings of long-dead doctors, social workers and managers. We wrote everything down. We did nothing.
