Birth, School, Work, Death

Un pezzo bellirrimo che già proposi parecchio tempo fa e che fu cassato forse perchè all’epoca le ‎‎“maglie” delle CCG erano ancora un po’ strettine… Provo a riproporlo, hai visto mai…‎

Semplicemente, le prospettive dei giovani inglesi nell’ultima fase del thatcherismo: nascere, ‎studiare (i più poveri e sfigati poco e malamente), lavorare (forse…), morire (fuckin’ surely ‎sure!)…‎
Been turned around till I'm upside down
Been all at sea until I've drowned
And I've felt torture, I've felt pain
Just like that film with Michael Caine
I've been abused and I've been confused
And I've kissed Margaret Thatcher's shoes
And I been high and I been low
And I don't know where to go

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death

And heroin was the love you gave
From the cradle to the grave
Boys and girls don't understand
The devil makes work for idle hands
I cut myself but I don't bleed
‎'Cause I don't get what I need
Doesn't matter what I say
Tomorrow's still another day

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death

Yeah I been high and I been low
And I don't know where to go
I'm living on the never never never
This time it's gonna be forever
I'll live and die don't ask me why
I wanna go to paradise
And I don't need your sympathy
There's nothing in this world for me

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death
