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 »

Its stifled
Its jealousy
Plots behind my back
Are all in it
Cloud of black
Cloud of black

North west territories
Wake up pressurized
Every day
In low lying lands

The sight every day
Is cloud of grey
(Take me back to the old east baby)
For silver eyes
(Cloud of grey)
Lasering my back
Cloud of black
Wake up mesmerized
(Crumbling in the skies)
Wake up mesmerized
Crumbling in the skies
See a cloud of white
See a cloud of white
See a cloud of grey
See a cloud of black
Cloud of white
Cloud of white
And I'll have it in a cold glass please
And not a red hot one
Cloud is gone
Cloud is gone
Cloud of black
Cloud of black
