about

This track is taken from the album Paul Liddell & Delphians - LIVE. The album was recorded at a gig in a tiny room upstairs at The Grey Horse pub in Whitburn Village, Sunderland. There were only 80 people at the gig. I hope you're enjoying the intimate vibe of the album. Thanks!

lyrics

Exploiters network is the national grid/unscrupulous doesn't quite cover it
You think that you're safe/but your name's on the list
I'll be in severing heaven when opening up your wrist/and you may
Think it strange but I don't find it funny
Relieving old people of their pension money
And I may be wrong/this may not be your fate
But I based my decision on an estimate

***I wanna knock on your door with a knife in my hand
I wanna be your kill - o - gram
No luck of the draw/it's personal justice
The law of the land is never gonna touch this
Knock on your door with a knife in my hand
I wanna be your kill - o - gram
Can't hide from my law/when your name's on the list
You'd better get ready for personal justice

I don't believe in abstinence everlasting
I put my faith in a prophylactic
People need to be free from disease/so with the holy see I disagree
But I prefer the see to celebrity
Transgressions broadcast on TV
Intellectual infidelity/is broadcast on the BBC

***

Is the fear in the media making us sick?
Is the pope a Catholic?
Do we deserve our fate 'cos we lost our wits?
Is the pope a Catholic?
A brazen beauty/clothes obscene
Bought her the life of a waking dream
The televised death of a beauty queen
With her face on the cover of a magazine
Is the fear in the media making us sick?
Is the pope a Catholic
And we deserve our fate 'cos we lost our wits
So give me the knife and I'll cut you quick
