This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
All the clubs have been closed down
This place (town) is coming like a ghost town
Bands won't play no more
Too much fighting on the dance floor
 
Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
We danced and sang, and the music played in a de boomtown
 
This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
Why must the youth fight against themselves?

Same era, but Matt Johnson nor the Specials named the Zionist Bolsheviks.

 

 

 

 

"Heartland"
 

Beneath the old iron bridges, across the Victorian parks,
& all the frightened people running home before dark,
Past the Saturday morning cinema--
that lies crumbling to the ground,
& the piss stinking shopping centre in the new side of town.
I've come to smell the seasons change, & watch the city,
as the sun goes down again.

[Chorus:]
Here comes another winter, of long shadows & high hopes,
Here comes another winter, waitin for utopia,
waitin for hell to freeze over.

This is the land, where nothing changes,
the land of red buses & blue blooded babies,
This is the place, where pensioners are raped,

& the hearts are being cut, from the welfare state,
Let the poor drink the milk, while the rich eat the honey,
Let the bums count their blessings, while they count the money.

So many people, can't express what's on their minds,
Nobody knows them & nobody ever will,
Until their backs are broken & their dreams are stolen,
& they can't get what they want, then they're gonna get angry!
Well it ain't written in the papers, but its written on the walls
The way this country is divided to fall,
So the cranes are moving on the skyline--
Trying to knock down--this town
But the stains on the heartland, can never be removed,
from this country, that's sick, sad, and confused.

[Chorus]

The ammunition's being passed, and the lords been praised,
But the wars on the televisions will never be explained,
All the bankers gettin sweaty, beneath their white collars,
As the pound in our pocket, turns into a dollar.


This is the 51st state--of the (my words, Zionist Bolshevik) U. S. A.

Unfortunately, no, but I wish I did live to witness the wholesome traditionalist folk music before Brits were poisoned with pop culture.

 

 

Which decade are you referring to, and was it a time when teenagers could break out of always being told what to and how to behave?

When music enters politics

Why should the lyrics of any song have to be about Zionist Bolsheviks?

I don't know, when did all the subversive mainstream music start? When radio and TV was adopted by millions I guess.

 

What's wrong with kids being disciplined too? I mean by their parents of course, not psychos like that Commie teacher in this thread.

Because they dictate policy to governments and also hold the purse strings which lend governments money at interest for the taxpayer to repay for unnecessary wars, suffering and conflict.

 

The, The,  Sweet bird of Truth.

In the late 19th century, a lot of people thought jazz was subversive, and a glimpse of stocking in the 1950's was also seen as shocking!

 

Society never has been without subversion and corruption.

But that doesn't mean that every song's lyrics has to be about that, does it?

It was never grassroots to begin with. Just fake counterculture bollocks.

 

It was more grassroots than a lot of other pop music from the period, and as for it being "bollocks" and "fake", it was less fake and less bollocks than anything around these days...

I don't really have an issue with jazz, but I think it was part of the dripfeed pipeline that got us to where we are today.

 

You have to boil a frog slowly.

 

They start with teenybopper stuff, then it slowly starts to become more promiscuous, then the drug phase, and now total debased garbage.

Yes, it's like drugs... at first it looks absolutely great and very tempting... the first few experiences can be great and then it's downhill when the addiction sets in.

The Devil's temptations often look innocent and great to start with.

 

Agreed. I don't want to sound like a purity spiraler though. I still have my guilty pleasures even if I feel like I can see stuff for what it is. I do mostly just listen to chill instrumental content these days, but I would be lying if I said I don't ever play any mainstream music.

There's a lot of evidence to show that counter culture was promoted from behind the scenes by people involved in the occult, but apart from extreme right wing politicians obviously manipulating the skinhead scene for their own agenda (and a lot of them were into the occult), I don't think they were involved with the inception of the skinhead subculture.
