about

“An evil soul producing holy witness, Is like a villain with a smiling cheek, A goodly apple rotten at the heart.”
- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice.

Sometimes it feels like the world is jam-packed full of Mark Kennedys and Nick Cleggs (i.e. immoral, opportunistic, self-interested, deceitful villains). Whether it’s through trusting an ‘activist’ who turns out to be an undercover police officer, or trusting a ‘Liberal Democrat’ who turns out to be a Tory, this song is about how easy it is to be fooled.

lyrics

They say “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” / Odds ten to one, conclusions drawn, solutions barely tried / Dissenting youth assemble truth, ammunition for the fight / We knew our time had come, a battle almost won, a target in our sights.

If we pull this off, we’ll bathe in glory / In a week, they’ll all be sorry / We could tell a different story now / A tale of bolt cutters and balaclavas / Liberation, love and ardour / We don’t ever plan on backing down.

You know that I had so much hope for the stories we might write / But we lost the plot while we were piecing it together, yeah we lost the plot while we were piecing it together / Yeah I had so much hope for the stories we might write / But we lost the plot while we were piecing it together, yeah we lost the plot that night.

Special branch is pounding on the door / There’s annotated blueprints left strewn out across the floor / Incriminating evidence / We lost our grip on common sense / Informants in our midst, right from the start,

Screaming, “face down, hands behinds behind your head” / There’s no time to get our stories straight / We were panic stricken, caught off guard / A rendezvous with Scotland Yard, There’s no escape, we’re falling hard.

[Clarinet by Michael Bridgewater. Additional Vocals by Jonathan Cairns.]
