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 »

Death of a sense of humour
'N death of sense
How do you recover from this? 

What do you fear?
Being found out
Then why do you always give yourself away? 

What do you want to do?
Hide
Then why go out and make an exhibition of yourself? 

What do you seek?
Oblivion
And drugs walk the streets 

What you want to be able to do 
is worst advice
Louse given in largesse 

Arms control 
Arms control poseur
Arms control 

Parliment connives a diseased access company
There's nothing much I can do about this
So I drink in recline with an acquaintance, sound 

Spouse is talking on the phone
To well-armed arms control poseur 

Arms control poseur 
I found my home
I made a calendar that wasn't there
To find whether it was the first of December
Or not 

Armed control poseur
In pity and envy
Dragged from the streets
I quite very very much enjoyed
His jovial lies
Lying 

Arms control poseur 
Arms control poseur
Arms control poseur 

Sports car interior
Encrusted with bluebottles
Armoured car interior 
Encrusted with bluebottles
I even stoop to an icy vodka
As I feel the inevitable
battle creep nearer and nearer
Chip! Chip! 
Arms control poseur 

Arms control poseur 
 Armoured car interior
Encrusted with bluebottles
I even stoop to an icy vodka
As I feel the inevitable 
battle creep nearer and nearer 
Armed control poseur 

As my great great great great great
great great great great
familiar found out
As my great great great great
similar found out
As my great great great great great
great great grandfather found out

Get me a nice wooly polo neck 
With a red cardigan 
From Next 
Ideal summer wear!
