[1987]
In “I Am a Wallet”, album d’esordio di questa band inglese che, purtroppo, ebbe breve vita.

I Am a Wallet

Una canzone che ironicamente illustra quello che negli anni 80 era il punto di vista semi-ufficiale della Chiesa cattolica sulla pandemia di AIDS, virus isolato tra il 1982 ed il 1984… E si pensi che ancora oggi alcuni illustri esponenti della Chiesa ritengono quella malattia una “forma di giustizia immanente” (così per esempio l’arcivescovo belga Léonard), quando non una vera e propria punizione divina…

“Thanks for your help!”


A ciò bisogna aggiungere i criminali precetti anti contraccezionali di Santa Madre Chiesa, che hanno dato il loro nefasto contributo al diffondersi del morbo, specie nei paesi in via di sviluppo…
In this hotbed of vice, in this nursery of sin
Let them perish like flies in the reckoning
Your evil acts that none can name
Let them pave the way to the grave

God made the virus to punish the wicked
Let the bells ring out the old and ring in the new
In the new, in the new

The sixties was an evil time
Everybody took drugs and had sex all the time
On the darkest night was the day to them
But a sun arose to kill them

God made the virus to punish the wicked
Let the bells ring out the old and ring in the new

This pious plague
Is seeking out sin
Makes me believe
It's our turn to win

Though you've slaughtered the foe of the family
This holy disease wastes the enemy
If you'd only send a special death
For the lesbians and the communists

God made the virus to punish the wicked
Let the bells ring out the old and ring in the new

This pious plague
Is seeking out sin
Makes me believe
It's our turn to win

God made the virus to punish the wicked
Let the bells ring out the old and ring in the new
God made it to punish the wicked
