lyrics

Green, Unpleasant Land

Charity begins at home, by checking out his wallet and his mobile phone
Cos if it feels like trouble then it’s probably trouble.
Working the weekend away or so he says,
But when it feels like trouble then it’s probably trouble.
It all boils down to you, you knit the truth, into a comfy jumper that suits
your seesaw moods until the world’s a mirror smiling at you
And no one can disturb you. Living in your green and unpleasant land.
There’s hot, hot hate, every day on a plate delivered by the voice of the Sun
and if it seems like trouble then it’s probably trouble.
The envy, resentment and bile; raging like a toddler past the chocolate aisle.
Cos if it seems like trouble then it’s probably trouble.
Sails her ship alone, to some twilight zone, where all the faces are more like her own
Skies are passport blue, taking back the rules, from all the unbelievers.
But no one can disturb you. Nothing’s going to change your mind. Living in your green and unpleasant land.
