Frank Black and Emma Hollis are forced to consider how many of their cases are truly ruled by conspiracy when a young girl, put in an asylum after being accused of murdering her parents, escapes from captivity with the help of a willing Sheriff’s Deputy. Are the girl’s rants regarding evolution and constant drawing of crossed palm trees a sign that there may be a more complex cover-up at work? Or is she, like Emma’s ailing father, simply going mad?

About Blur

Blur's original influences on their debut album, Leisure, included contemporary British alternative rock trends such as Madchester and shoegazing. Following a stylistic change in the mid-1990s, influenced by 1960s English pop groups such as The Kinks and The Beatles, the band released Modern Life is Rubbish, Parklife and The Great Escape. As a result, the band helped to popularise the Britpop genre and achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided by a famous chart battle with Britpop rivals Oasis.

By the late 1990s, with the release of their fifth album, Blur, the band underwent another reinvention, influenced by the indie rock and lo-fi style of American bands such as Pavement and R.E.M., in the process gaining an elusive American success with the single "Song 2". The final album featuring the band's original lineup, 13, found Blur experimenting with electronica and gospel music.

In 2002, founding member and guitarist Graham Coxon left the band early in recording sessions for Think Tank, the band's seventh and latest album. Blur continued in his absence, seeing both the album and a tour through. Since the end of their 2003 tour, the band has unofficially been on hiatus, as band members are working on solo projects. Although Coxon had shown no interest in rejoining Blur, in recent months he has reportedly warmed to the idea, leading unconfirmed reports of his return to Blur to surface late in 2006.

I got no style
I'll take my time
All those losers on the piss again
I dose dose away

That's just the way it is
That's just the way it is

I've got trimm trabb
Like the flash boys have
And I can't go back
Let it flow, let it flow
I sleep alone
I sleep alone

That's just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
That's just the way it is

I got trimm trabb
Like the flash boys have
And I can't go back
Let it flow, let it flow
I sleep alone
I sleep alone...
