The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

Go back go back
To your diseased-[WHUP!]-control room 

Don't be don't be
Nice about it
Just spit it back 

Why don't, ward off
Why don't you be mature about it
In your grey raincoat 

Off ward, ward off
The Joke 

Violent food
Descends over you
Huh 

Off ward, ward off
The Joke 

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp 

Multicoloured sweets 
In bottom of white sweet pack
The realization burns into my back 

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp
The Joke 

Violent food
Descends over you 

The Joke 
The Joke
Five years in a PC camp 

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp
The Joke 

Five years in a PC camp
