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 »

The firmament is both my enemy and my friend
One other thing's for sure - division in my soul
Punk art person was you my son
You're an androgynous piece of slop

Roll up! Sons of temperance
Voila! Sons of temperance
Roll up! Sons of temperance

Present crypto-moralist nation
On the night out of the valley
Of sweet silence
Dark distortions of the past
And the restructure of your new life

Firmament is both my enemy and madness
One other thing's for sure - division in my soul
The abolition of your mind and your brain and your soul
Bell-hop

Roll up! Sons of temperance
Voila! Sons of temperance
Voila! Sons of temperance

Present crypto-moralist nation
On the night out of the valley
Of sweet silence
Dark distortions of the past
And the restructure of your new life
