SELL, SELL, SELL

[And they're working it pretty hard]
[And they're selling it by the yard]
[But it's more than I can afford]
[That's all that I know]

Words: D. Gray

APOSTLES OF NEGLECT


[People die as you elect]
[New apostles of neglect, self restraint]
[Whereby people die]

[As you pour yourself a scotch]
[Crush a roach or check your watch]
[As your hands adjust your tie people die]

[In the towns with funny names]
[hit by bullets, caught in flames]
[By and large not knowing why people die]

Words: J. Brodsky

BLACKOUT

[Give me a taste of something new]
[To touch,to hold,to pull me through]
[Send me a guiding light that shines]

[across this darkened life of mine]

Words: M. Ure

VISIONS IN BLUE

[Face in the window in the night]
[Caught for a second by the light]
[Ashes of memory still aglow]
[Only for you]
[Portraits and pictures you once saw]

[Visions in blue]

Words: M. Ure

DISAPPEARING WORLD


[Night falling on the city]
[Quite something to behold]
[Don’t it just look so pretty]
[This disappearing world]

Words: D. Gray

STATUS QUO

[Whole generations thinking of themselves
As infidels and pop stars]
[While the bomb loses patience
We line up and just lean against the bar]
Words: J. Currie

BLUR

And I might be more of a man if I stopped this in its tracks
And said, come on, let's go home. But she's got the wheel,
And I've got nothing except what I have on.

Words: Del Amitri

REVOLUTION

If no one seems to understand
Start your own revolution and cut out the middleman
In a perfect world we'd all sing in tune
But this is reality so give me some room
Words: Billy Bragg

BUILD

Clambering men in big bad boots
Dug up my den, dug up my roots
Treated us like plasticine town
They built us up and knocked us down
Words: The Housemartins

CAGED

The people gather and the birds they scare
Concrete and clay conspire to cage me there
Words: Roddy Frame
