lyrics

When the lights go down in the underground and the rats are kings again,
When the Tower Bridge’s final swing sinks her into the Thames.
2000 year foundations built on fire and piss and rage.
When your cities burn, then the luxury of empire quickly fades.

What did you do with the city debt, just look the other way?
And I think you’ll find, these gears won’t grind, with the price you make us pay.
When the ship goes down, and it will go down, the captain must remain,
Cause the crew will stand on guard until he’s dead,
And then the band will play...

When the ravens fly on an acrid sky and the king loses his head,
And the 134 can roll no more through Camden’s living dead.
When you’ve gentrified from Mayfair to Old Kent Road don’t pretend,
Your heart’s an English rose, because we’ve all seen shit ascend.

What did you do with the city debt, just look the other way?
And I think you’ll find, these gears won’t grind, with the price you make us pay.
When the ship goes down, and it will go down, the captain must remain,
Cause the crew will stand on guard until he’s dead,
And then the band will play…

What did you do with the city debt, just look the other way?
And I think you’ll find, these gears won’t grind, with the price you make us pay.
When the ship goes down, and it will go down, the captain must remain,
Cause the crew will stand on guard until he’s dead,
And then the band will play...
