Bloodsports – Style Council

Ghosts Of Dachau – Style Council

The Paris Match – Style Council

Spent combing the street In daytime showers They’ve become my beat; As I walk from cafe to bar I wish I knew where you are; Because you’ve clouded my mind And now I’m all out of time Empty skies say try to forget Better advice is to have no regrets; As I tread the boulevard […]

Wanted – Style Council

All Gone Away – Style Council

Having free reign with the town so bleak – Like everything else it’s – all gone away. The Town Hall clock gives forth its chime, For no-one there to ask the time – Like everything else they’ve – all gone away. The Grocer’s shop hangs up its sign The sign say’s closed it’s a sign […]

Big Boss Groove – Style Council

To get any back to you will have to pay Don’t shout or get upset It’s the same message from the holy Tory government Don’t rock the sinking ship And don’t fly in the face of it Work for your heaven’s way It’s the same bullshit from the pulpit and the president Hear keys getting […]

The Gardener Of Eden – Style Council
