lyrics

BUILD ANOTHER CAR PARK

Build another car park / Dodge the tax and pay the bills
Drown the streets in tarmac / Decorate with rubbish bins
Privatise the pavement / Find the cracks and fill them in
‘Til every footstep is forbidden / Hidden echoes of a sin

Build another car park / There’s always room for just one more
Herd the people through department stores to find the only door
To escape the layers of concrete and set foot into a town
Which is identical to the others for a hundred miles around

Build another car park / Because I still know where I am
This town still has some character / Pay to pave it while you can
Don’t build homes for folks to live in / Put up stores then close the doors
My eyes are tired of seeing pound shops ringed by overflowing bins
Build another car park / Burn the Earth and crack the sky
Oil the wheels of the machine with tears from God’s unseeing eye
Build another car park / Fill up each and every space
‘Til every city is identical to every other fucking place

Build another car park / There’s always room for just one more
