Came to town last week and the whole thing still seemed like a dream But here in the city I've learned nothing is quite how it seems The shopkeepers don't give a f**k about the reason that you're here Rip you off with lowgrade stock Your dream's a pound for the cashier
Young band's on stage but the bar is where the action's found Who needs the hope of tomorrow when the old band's reformed and in town When they finally take the stage they'll take you back to better times An age that ended long ago A nostalgia trip that's just a lie
There was a time when you had something to say But you can't live in yesterday 'Cause the power is gone and the glory won't stay You'll die on the new cross today
Just up the street is a town where the grief hasn't changed But you sit on your asses and let society take the blame Your hairstyle does the talking now, your creed's a jacket that you wear Your fight turned to complacency And now you're just a cross for us to bear
What was the point of you coming this far If you can't finish what you start What was the point if you trade your beliefs For a world of self-deceit
How do you feel about the above Allegiance "Die on The New Cross" lyrics? It seems to be a song about a fallen english scene.
I don't know too much about Ghetto Rock, but they got in touch with me last year as they wanted to reissue the Redskins live album. Anyway, I put them in touch with the Redskins bassist Martin Hewes. I'm not sure what happened, but in the end the Redskins live album came out last month on Mad Butcher Records. Which is really bad news as Mad Butcher are rip off merchants. Not only have they ripped me off in the past, but they don't pay songwriters fees either.
