Out Of Control- II by Xerces Out Of Control- II by Xerces
From my series of pictures named with a song title Out of Control- The Chemical Brothers
The second of two pictures for this song.
Out Of Control- I

Again, focussing with layers of glass involved isn't fun :-(
Fake blood and liquidised tissue.
Some of you may notice that this is a WKD bottle. I thought that would add a little twist to their hook "have you got a WKD side?" It also took a few attempts to break tha bottle in the way I had visualised for the shot, so there is now a couple of dessimated bottles sitting in the old coal shed in the back yard. If anything, it is an improvement to the general shit in there already _

This picture is showing how things got out of control. Interpret it how you will.

The words that inspired it:
Sometimes I feel that I'm misunderstood,
The river's running deep right through my blood.
Your naked body's lying on the ground,
You always get me up when I'm down.

And it always seems we're running out of time.
We're out of control,
Out of control. Out of control.

It may be that I'm just scared of losing you,
Or maybe it's the things you make me do.
It seems to me we both should hang around,
And raise the population of this town.

And it always seems we're running out of time.
We're out of control,
Out of control. Out of control. Out of control.
But it doesn't mean we're too far down the line.

We're out of control,
Out of control.

Just a quick message to inform you that your piece has been featured in the A, B, C's of Horror under the letter "Q". Q is for Quarrel, after all.
