Northampton’s Road To Nowhere

Standard

Take a walk through my town
Down the dark and dirty paths
We got no money for street lights
There are no wages for street cleaners
Peer from the lofty lift tower heights
Drink in the run down derelict sights
Hear the dereliction of council duty
Drunk on their neoliberal counsel booty
We have been cut raw to the bone
Dying homeless on the streets alone
Where is the council’s ghost at the feast
Playing host to our very own beast
Draining the lifeblood of our town
We have even been abandoned by the clown
Society now secondary to loan repayments
Who gives a fuck about benefit claimants?
Tear the bus stop down one won’t be soon
Expect one along once in a blue moon
Repeat to me we are all in this together
While I freeze to death in the cold weather
These fair weather friends provide no service
Do they forget they are suppose to serve us!

Corruption Capitalism

Standard

Creed of Capitalism
Is the greed of capitalism
Bringing about the fall of capitalism
There is no hope of reforming capitalism
We can only settle for abolishing capitalism
Solely because of the crimes of capitalism
Forget about the lies of capitalism
Focus on the destruction of capitalism
Socialism the only cure for capitalism

Cracked Windscreen Called Life

Standard

Stuck in the fast lane
And going in reverse
Try put the breaks on
It just makes things worse

On the outside looking in
At the end of my journey
When will it begin
I thought I saw an angel
Yet I’m living in sin

Curtains begin to close
We take our final bow
We smash into the verge
Our souls have one last surge

What is left for us to say?
We lived with our regrets
Now come what may.

Famine of the Soul

Standard

That emptiness you feel eating away at your soul
Is the suffering that the world feels
The pain and wounds inflicted on one effects us all
We’re all connected we’re all one under the Sun
You know something is wrong but you don’t know what
You can feel it right now eating away at your gut
Your heartaches and you’re not sure why
Sometimes you just want to break down and cry
Its due to the injustice that we take
Its because its our future that is at stake
The planet society its all reaching melting point
So enough of being a defeatist repeating
Whats the fucking point?
The lines that connect us might be invisible
But its this system that is indefensible
And I aint talking about a grand cosmic shift
All that is needed is for you not to take this shit
They brainwash us to think this is how it must be
But look into your heart we were all born free

A Birds Tale

Standard

You’re not a bird said the eagle to the crow
You can’t fly as high as me
look how high I can go!

The crow flew after him
try as he might
but it was no good
the eagle flew out of sight

so off the crow went
on his merry way
What a terrible start to his day

A robin the crow found
On a tree branch stood proud
You’re not a bird the robin did say
look at my red breast
As he fluttered away

When the crow looked down
no red was to be found
The crow flew up
he did not want to stay

Twit-to made the crow jump
He hit into a tree with a loud thump
Looking down on him there was an owl
You’re not a bird, I’ll show you how
Then the owls head moved right around

It startled the crow
he flew away quick
he did not know how
but afraid he was
he couldn’t stop now

Then the crow heard a beautiful sound
There he looked on another bird
came flying down

It was a white bird
what he did not know
There he shared his tale of woe
I’ll help you the bird did say
It was a dove friendly
and in love

So they went back
where the birds could see
they squaked and they shouted
we are birds now sit and learn
together the two danced
as happy as can be
there is power in numbers
just wait and see!
As the two birds sung
as loud as can be
more flocked to them
as many as can be

Hail Simmonds!

Standard

Simmonds thinks he’s Caesar
he reminds me of Caligula
Fiddle as Northampton burns!

He’s a school builder
not a crime fighter
Simmonds school
he played us for fools

Blood stained legacy
long after he’s history
the truth will be a mystery
Corruption in Northampton
is a state of normality

Police force on all fours
you tell me the cause
Who needs officers
we have an academy!
Money making offers
enriching Tory coffers

Crime is on the rise
so lets go roundabout
Its time for your goodbyes!
Enough with the sell off
the great pcc rip off
Its time now mr.pcc
why don’t you f off
