ALL ROADS LEAD TO HULME They used to say this was a no go area Even Bobby wouldn't walk this beat Then they tore down the Birley Tree & built student flats at the end of the street Its just a zoo for a transient population A shit example set for the next generation They say its for community But it stinks of gentrification to me Chorus: Stuff your yuppie flats, we're happy with the rats She's living in the ghetto The Paper told her so the city got plans for this place A place that she don't know She used to know her neighbours Used to go and knock round Borrow a cup of sugar, cup of tea or a few pound And Gary's dad squatted here Back in the day Then they put him in this block of flats To keep him out the way Well now it's prime property In a prime location On the city limits It's prime for expansion Unaffordable housing springing up all over town, As all the old flats have been sold or ripped down Day in day out the ground beneath your feet Turns in to Tupperware towers for the social elite Communities ripped apart as the developers move in & if you don't like it you better get moving Cos the yuppies yeah there coming in next door Shouting turn that fuckin' music down there banging on the floor

Babylon Rock 02:36
Babylon Rock Took a piss on the boarder, Symbolic but I needed to go Increased control on the boarder, Barbed wire, traffic going slow Twenty miles from this green unpleasant land, Where the camps stand, prison camps locked up Locked up by the governments hand and the peoples pencil cross We have to leave, leave, leave, leave em to suffer suffer behind the padlock Meanwhile another night, another night on Babylon Rock Chorus Another night in front of the TV, on Babylon Rock You and me in front of the TV, on Babylon Rock Saw the tarps from the window, Didn't feel the real sufferation You saw the colour on the television screen & said we have to say no to immigration Protect this place from immigration WHAT?! The industrial estates and service stations? Make this place great again? Its just blip on the map soiled by shame Lights flicker in the houses Towns busy, binge drinkers Streets full of rough sleepers Prisons full of dole cheaters So you wanna protect this Island? Mentality England is just a state of mind keeping us under lock and key Road block and curfew, me and the crew just role through The boarder police they pose and chat, seems to me there just a talking parrot

un Like A Girl I got more unwanted male attention when I was twelve years old I still have my keys between my fingers when I'm walking home Humans only love you when your smiling I'm told So look happy, look happy, keep smiling, keep smiling Chorus You run like a girl, not an insult You cry like a girl, not an insult Gotta be the man they say don't show how you feel But its all constructed and you know it just ain't real When I was young they said you know that boys don't cry Keep it down and grit your teeth until they day you die Laugh and feel and cry and scream Yeah I'll laugh and feel and try and scream Laugh and feel and cry and scream Yeah I'll try and scream yeah I'll cry and scream

DOG 02:20
DOG It's times like these I realise That Dickens's model still applies As I toil hard behind the scenes Greasing the cogs of their machines With blackened faces and half broke backs From warehouse dirt and shifting stacks We cough the dust up from our throats and line their vaults with crisp new notes Chorus I'm a dog and I work like one too, I'm a dog, a beast of burden for you War drums beating gain Back of the wagon 7am Fifteen tonnes by 5pm & again, & again The mill owner he looks at me & he don't like what he does see Cos I'm far to high a price to pay To shift the barrels from the loading bay
