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 »

Head down 
Head down 
Head, head, head down. 

Fool of the Commonwealth drove down there, 
Down turnpike; 
Desperate for food desperate for respite. 

The steak place. 
The steak place 

Cheap carpet lines the way 
Aluminium tack door handles 
Candelabra lions head 
Via butchers display too. 

The steak place
The steak place

Via a carcass row
Things are brought forward and eaten, 
I see the corners filled with hitmen, 
Two young lawyers they are whispering, in 

The steak place
The steak place

I want to stay here, 
I don't want to go anywhere, 
I could remain here, 

Head down 
Head down 
Head down 
Head, head, head down
The steak place
The steak place

I'd stop the automation, 
I'd sit behind dusty lace, 
I have a word with hitmen, 
I give off a beatific face. 

The steak place
The steak place
From New York City run screaming, 
Into New England states, 
Combined a man not should have to do this, 
A man should not use his fist in 

The steak place.
The steak place. 

I want to stay here, 
I don't want to go anywhere, 
I shall remain here.
