Thread Name: Origin: Flandyke Shore (Nic Jones)
Subject: RE: Origin: Flandyke Shore (Nic Jones)
I've always thought the bullet makes total emotional sense, either where Nic has it or where it is in the broadside version, with the young man showing his feelings of utter frustration and thwarted passion in the only way he can. In the same way some people (myself from time to time) have been known to throw rocks into the sea.
It's one of my favourite songs of all time.
