Track Name: Scrap The Town Hall
Rates too high, you don’t have to lie
Four million pounds won’t drop from the sky
It’ll come from the ratepayers’ pocket
And there's no way to stop it

Scrap the Town Hall!

You’re not alone, pick up the phone
The council can’t get blood from a stone
If you don’t like their tricks
Phone 22056

Scrap the Town Hall!

The winters are cold, the houses are old
But it’ll get better, or so we’re told
But there’s no need to complain
If you live in Cranmore Lane

Scrap the Town Hall!

People in the Square don’t think it’s fair
But the Tory Councillors just don’t care
There’s plenty of offices in the town
But they claim their reasons are sound

Scrap the Town Hall!
Track Name: Secret Police
When you’re walking home at night
Don’t think that you’re alone
And don’t believe there’s no-one there
When you pick up the phone

The Secret Police are on the job
And they are watching you…


They always know when you’ve been out
And exactly where you’ve been
And they’ve got names and photographs
Of the people you have seen

The Secret Police are on the job
And they are watching you…


There are ways to ascertain
What you read and what you write
What you know and where you go
Who you slept with last night

The Secret Police are on the job
And they are watching you…
Track Name: Squadron
Flight codename “Copenhagen”
Introducing “The Squadron”
Volunteer with hesitation
Mobilisation? Exercise?

Got a job way up North
Classified information
Action that will grab the world
Newscast sensation

Scramble Copenhagen Squadron
Airborne in ninety seconds
Moscow will never forget
The Copenhagen Squadron

Two hundred feet above the sea
Mach 2…increasing
Under enemy radar screens
Fly tight formation

North Seas into Arctic night
Warheads primed and ready
Target in visual sight
Payload dispatched

Scramble Copenhagen Squadron
Airborne in ninety seconds
Moscow will never forget
The Copenhagen Squadron
Track Name: Gambling Man
He's a gambling man he steals from the state
He won't seek help ‘cos his habit's too great
He's always broke but cash is his need
His soul is full of greed

He'll work his way into your house
In the guise of a loyal friend
He'll bleed you dry in the blink of an eye
But won't return to make amends

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do

He's a gambling man he steals from the state
Loyalty to anyone is what he lacks
He borrows from those he calls his mates
But never pays 'em back

He'll feel no remorse for what he'll do
He only thinks about himself not you
He'll steal from you but quickly deny
And sell his spoils, what a guy

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do

He's a gambling man he steals from the state
He won't seek help his habit's too great
He's always broke but cash is his need
His soul is full of greed

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do
Track Name: Forgotten Youth
We are the forgotten youth...what are we gonna do?
We are the forgotten youth, they've forgotten me and you

The forgotten youth live on council estates
In the outer suburbs, where there's no escape
We need a break, we've got to escape
How did we ever get in to this state?
Got to get away, can't take another day
Got to find a better life, find another way

The forgotten youth go nowhere at night
Hang around in groups, don't get into fights
We need a break, we've got to escape
How did we ever get into this state?
Got to get away, can't take another day
Got to find a better life, find another way

The forgotten youth
We were the forgotten youth
Track Name: Cowards
I hear them laughing when I'm walking down the street
They call out names and they even raise their feet.
When they're in a gang, they feel they're well protected
But on their own, their courage is affected

They're all cowards, that's what they are
They're all cowards, oh yes they are

Are you real hard if you plant a bomb and run
Wouldn't be so brave if you were staring down a gun
When they're in a gang, they feel they're well protected
But on their own, their courage is affected

They're all cowards, that's what they are
They're all cowards, oh yes they are
Track Name: No Police No Love Songs
Everybody sings about the police or love songs
Everybody sings about the things that went wrong
We sing about the things that get us down
We just want to sing and make our own sound

No police... no love songs

Everything’s a cliché, everything’s the same
Everything’s been done before so we’ll do it again
They sing about the police that they have to face
Then the love songs all take second place

No police... no love songs
Track Name: Speeding Along
Same old boring everyday
Jumped in my car to get away
Highway driving I felt fine
Speeding along I had plenty of time
Thought I’d turn my radio on
But all I got was a disco song
Reached and moved the dial along
But all I got was Jimmy Young

Speeding along with my radio on...

Gave that dial another twist
But all I got was Brahms and Liszt
Thinking this was pretty bad
Capital Radio driving me mad
Turned it on to LBC
Where news comes first but not for me
Switched it to the Long Waveband
Some DJ I can’t understand

Speeding along with my radio on...

Turned that dial a little more
On the air it’s Radio Four
Programmes on the arts and mime
Politics and story time
Thought I’d put the FM on
Police transmission coming on strong
A speeding car APB
Then I sussed that car was me

Speeding along with my radio on...
Track Name: Mercenaries
Go to the docks tomorrow – stand near the back
You’ll see a man there waiting, dressed in black
Follow him along the quayside, get in his car
He’ll take you where you’re going – it isn’t far

Within a month or maybe two
We’ll make a man out of you
We’ll take you to foreign lands
We’ll put a gun into your hands

We’ve got the guns to give you that kill real clean
We’ll train you to perfection to be real mean
Russian sub machine guns that shoot real fast
The AK-47 – it’s built to last

Within a month or maybe two
We’ll make a man out of you
We’ll take you to foreign lands
We’ll put a gun into your hands

Two thousand pounds a week with no tax to pay
You can kill someone different every day
Learn how to be a soldier, learn how to fight
As long as you don’t think, you’ll be alright

Within a month or maybe two
We’ll make a man out of you
We’ll take you to foreign lands
We’ll put a gun into your hands
Track Name: Dead Quiet
I’ve got a feeling deep inside
That there’s no-one left alive
I’ve been trained to control my fear
But it’s dead quiet round here

Dead quiet…nothing, not a sound
Dead quiet…no-one else around
Dead quiet…nothing, not a sound
Dead quiet…no-one else around

Well I’m a million miles from home
And I’m feeling apprehensive
Never quite sure if I’m alone
Always on the defensive

All around me shattered remains
Of broken civilisation
Everywhere it’s just the same
Desperate situation
Track Name: Waiting
Switch off your TV, take a walk down town
The kids ain't dancing, they're just hanging around
Ask them why and they'll turn round to you
They'll just say there's nothing to do
We hang aound, we ain't been told
We're just waiting for the end of the world

Most people say what we're doing is wrong
We just say it won't be long
One of these days those nukes are gonna blow
And we'll have some fun when we go
We hang around, we ain't been told
We're just waiting for the end of the world
