As a result of our inquiry, I went through the door.
I passed a wolf and a bear.

Without is without in the nursery
Darkness is not dark in the nursery
Time is not time in the nursery
Sun becomes moon in the nursery
It’s only hard at first in the nursery
No guilt, no retribution in the nursery
No fear, no retribution in the nursery
Dogs turn into wolves in the nursery…

Beneath the old iron bridges
Across the Victorian parks
And all the frightened people
Running home before dark
Past the Saturday morning cinema
That lies crumbling to the ground
And the piss stinking shopping centre
In the new side of town

I’ve come to smell the seasons change
And watch the city as the sun goes down again

Here comes another winter
Of long shadows and high hopes
Here comes another winter
Waitin’ for Utopia
Waitin’ for hell to freeze over

This is the land where nothing changes
The land of red buses and blue blooded babies
This is the place where pensioners are raped
And the hearts are being cut from the welfare state
Let the poor drink the milk
While the rich eat the honey
Let the bums count their blessings
While they count the money

So many people can’t express what’s on their minds
Nobody knows them, nobody ever will
Until their backs are broken, their dreams are stolen
And they can’t get what they want
Then they’re gonna get angry
Well, it ain’t written in the papers
But it’s written on the walls
The way this country’s dividing to fall
So the cranes are moving on the skyline
Tryin’ to knock down … this town
But the stains on the heartland
Can never be removed
From this country that’s sick, sad and confused

Here comes another winter
Of long shadows and high hopes
Here comes another winter
Waitin’ for Utopia
Waitin’ for hell to freeze over

The ammunition’s been passed
And the Lord’s been praised
But the wars on the televisions
Will never be explained
All the bankers gettin’ sweaty
Beneath their white collars
As the pound in our pocket
Turns into a dollar

THIS IS THE 51st STATE OF THE U.S.A

Wishing that something would happen
A change in this place,
‘cos I’m tearing off the fancy wrapping
Find an empty package

Take for a while
Your trumpet from your lip
Loosen your hold, loosen your grip
On your old ways
That have fallen out of step
In a changing time
Hoist a new flag
Hoist a new flag

Angry sun burn down
Judging us all
Guilty of neglect and disrespect
And thinking small

And death by boredom
And death by greed
If we can’t stop taking
More than we need

But across the fractured landscape
I find the same things
Tired ideas
Birds without wings

Birds without wings
Birds without wings

And these are just thoughts
On lack-lustre times
I’ve no interest
In excuses you can find

Like you’ve had a hard day
Now you’ve too tired to care
Now you’re too tired to care
You’ve had a hard day

Well across the fractured landscape
I see the same things
Tired ideas broken values
Many with the notion
That to share is to lose
A hollow people bound by a lack
Of imagination and too much looking back Without the courage
To give a new thing a chance
Grounded by this ignorance

(and the cat comes)
We’re just,

Birds without wings
Birds without wings
Birds without wings

Bat your eyes girl, be otherworldly.
Count your blessings. Seduce a stranger.
What’s so wrong with being happy?
Kudos to those who see through sickness. (yeah)
Over and over and over and over and ooh…

She woke in the morning.
She knew that her life had passed her by
And she called out a Warning:
"Don’t ever let life pass you by!"

I suggest we learn to love
ourselves before it’s made illegal.
When will we learn? (When will we learn?)
When will we change? (When will we change?)
Just in time to see it all come down.
Those left standing will make millions
writing books on the way it should have been.

When she woke in the morning,
she knew that her life had passed her by
And she called out a Warning (Warning):
"Don’t ever let life pass you by!"

Floating in this cosmic jacuzzi,

we are like frogs oblivious
to the water starting to boil.
No one flinches. We all float face down.

She woke in the morning.
She knew that her life had passed her by
And she called out a Warning,
"Don’t ever let life pass you by…
pass you by…"
