Weller : "It's political with a small 'p'. There's a line in there about the death of the post box. It's about how technology brings advantages but it also depersonalises things." (Source Wake Up the Nation Songfacts).

Fish from the paper, fresh from the sea
The cracks in the pavement, the city in siege
I don't know where to replace it or who to believe
Can't find on the pavement or lay on his knees
