The Mekons - Rock'n'roll - 1989

destroy your safe and happy lives before it is too late,
the battles we fought were long and hard,
just not to be consumed by rock n' roll...
capitalismos, favorite boy child, we must apologise,
up in the rafters a rope is danglin',
spots before the eyes of rock n' roll...
we know the devil and we have shaken him by the hand,
embraced him and thought his foul (stinking) breath was fine perfume
just like rock n' roll...
east berlin can't buy a thing, there's nothing they can sell me,
walk through the wall no pain at all
i'm born inside the belly of rock n' roll...
it's something to sell your labor for when hair sprouts out below,
i'm a microscope on that secret place where
we all want to go, it's rock n' roll.

Memphis, Egypt
Club Mekon
Only Darkness Has The Power
Ring O'Roses
Learning To Live On Our Own
Cocaine Lyl
Empire Of The Senseless
I Am Crazy
Heaven And Back
Blow Your Tuneless Trumpet
When Darkness Falls
