David Sylvian

David Sylvian (born David Alan Batt, 23 February 1958) is an English singer-songwriter and musician who came to prominence in the late 1970s as the lead vocalist and main songwriter in the group Japan. His subsequent solo work is described by critic Jason Ankeny as "a far-ranging and esoteric career that encompassed not only solo projects but also a series of fascinating collaborative efforts." Sylvian's solo work has been influenced by a variety of musical styles and genres, including jazz, avant-garde, ambient, electronic, and progressive rock. more »

Once again I'm hiding in backwaters,
Running this way and that,
Trying so very hard to please.

(Beware of hidden snares.)
Rushing to bite the hand that feeds me,
Running this way and that.

(There are always other possibilities.)
This way and that.
