Track Name: All Roads Lead to Hulme
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
Track Name: Babylon Rock
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
Track Name: Run Like a Girl
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
Track Name: DOG
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
