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 »

Veins on leaves
A cat of kings
A mouthful of seed
A strand of beads
An hour of lust
A bucket of trust
It's time to rest
My shiny things
Pull them off
Pull them off
Pull them off of me 

Little one, please don't cry
Shiny things you just can't buy 

Trying to fix
Isn't broken
Letting dust
Inside old swings
Turning to rust
My shiny things
Pull them off
Pull them off
Pull them off of me 

Little one, please don't cry
Shiny things you just can't buy 

Trying to fix
Isn't broken
Locked in dust
Insect wings
Turning to rust
My shiny things
Turning to rust
My shiny things
Pull them off
Pull them off
Pull them off of me 

Little one, please don't dry
Shiny things you just can't buy 

Bonkers at Phoenix 
You never know, though, eh? eh?
That Glastonbury
Would all people who want
Vegetarian burgers go on the left
And those who want meat burgers on the right
Car parking is available at Glastonbury Phoenix 

Out of the back 
You see me
Naughty wicker man, oogie man
You see me, oogie man
M. Riley 

You mood swing
And from the day
Angles with you
