Why read the Squeeze Reader?

Because Glenn is in Japan and Jools is doing his regular stint as a mega celebrity, things seem to be a little quiet in the Squeeze-news front. So, I wondered what is bringing people to the Squeeze Reader, and my tracker came up with the following:

Intriguing last item, n'est-ce pas? Can anyone shed light on that (or fess up to it)? And for the rest of you, because we at the Squeeze Reader aim to please:
I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case
I said to my reflection, let's get out of this place
Passed the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill
Billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still keep calling and calling
But forget it all I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on now that you have gone
There's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I'm at the carpark, the airport, the baggage carousel
The people keep on writing, and wishing I was well
I said, "It's no occasion, it's no story I can tell"
At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer
I fumble for the clock, alarmed by the seduction
I wish that it would stop


I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune all for you
But it's not my conscience that hates to be untrue
I asked of my reflection, tell me what is there to do
And now you know.
