My Old Town

Album: The Veil Has Been Lifted

 

My old school, they burned it to the ground

Built some luxury homes on my ole playground

They walk in shame, They walk in shame

 

My ole friends all been beaten down

Everywhere you look the people wearin’ frowns

Such a shame

It’s such a shame

The people they walk in the rain

 

How much til you've had enough

You got blind kids walking home in the snow ‘cause of you

Get your greedy noses out that trough

One day soon everybody’s gonna know the truth

The ravens will come home to roost

And call your name

 

My old school got sold for poisoned pounds

Secret bank accounts of councilors to be found

They walk in shame, They walk in shame,

 

Ombudsman in your pocket

Policeman mps keeping the status quo

We all know They'll never unlock it

Penny bribes to keep all those poor people poor

But one day they'll even the score

And curse your name

 

My old town - should burn it to the ground

Start it all again, a phoenix rising proud

I’ll praise the day

I’ll praise the day

Until then they’ll walk in the rain

 

How much til you've had enough

You got blind kids walking home in the snow ‘cause of you

Get your greedy noses out that trough

One day soon everybody’s gonna know the truth

The ravens will come home to roost

And call your name

 

They walk in shame

They walk in shame

One day they’ll walk in the rain…
