Dust Devil
Madness Lyrics


Spy the little whizzkid yeah, she's streets ahead
On top of the daybreak and,
The last one to bed
Keeps her gizmo, under her pillow
Little dust devil whipping up a storm

Paving the way for dropouts she's,
Equanimous to the norm
Come early evening, well, she's banging off the ceiling
I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could paint you into my picture
I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could draw you into my picture

Holds the toilet seat around her neck
Writes the landlord out another open cheque
Come the daybreak well, she's a self-maid

I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could paint you into my picture
And I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could draw you into my picture
They surely would...

I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could paint you into my picture
And I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could draw you into my picture

I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could paint you into my picture
And I said 'Come down!' I am missing you
If these little fingers could draw you into my picture
They surely would...

I dunno why people hate the video so much. It matches the song quite nicely and fits with the title of the song. This girl if going through what seems like a night out gone wrong and spiraling out listlessly down the pisser. And every time she starts crying the chorus reminds her she should calm down... the good in her is what the "speaker" of the song is missing, yet he wants to capture her in her entirety, as the person she truly is. 

Without knowing what is actually being said we do not know who instigates the arguments so we cannot pass judgement .. but we can see she, like any person, is distraught and spiraling like a paper bag in a dust devil, out to places she wouldn't intend for herself. 
As one commenter also noted, she is in a wheelchair: Symbolism of life spinning down a path unknown?.

The music is as expected of Madness, tells a story and captivates the listener. The slower pace matching their maturity; It's simple and inviting into the world of the "speaker" in the lyrics. 

In my opinion the video works well in conveying the emotions of the song... 
How I feel about it anyway.
