Red Wedding


Fang Over Lip

Nymphs and shepherds discover to their mild annoyance that in their efforts to be individuals, they have all ended up looking the same.

Here do I stand on top of the bridge
Over the Cider Sea
There's a Network Seven and a Sprinter train
Where "Implacable" used to be
We've been sold down the river of profit and loss
Our boss is a self-made man
He's all the fun of a poll-axe
And I'm betting on also-rans
He sells into China for gunpowder tea
And buys Anarchist PLC

So I've rented a house on the East side of hell
With a garden and wonderful view
Where I'm all grown up and I'm all washed out
And forgetting my misspent youth
Here the cats keep coming on covered in sighs
So long as they can't catch me
Then I'm all wired up and I'm all tuned in
And I'll evermore bouncing be
Don't say you don't know me at all
If you ever come round to call

Now this is my table and this is my chair
And this is my Ford Capri
There's a sunstrip sticker and a leopard skin wheel
Where my para-boots used to be
Where once before I was certain and sure
To be bound for a heavenly see
Now I'm learning to do as I'm done by
It's the fire side down for me
And I give you my guarantee
Some day you will ride with me
