Songs For Our Times

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be entertaining to start a thread of songs for our times. I heard this old gem from '86 on the radio this morning. It's what is coming IMO.

Please add your songs :)

The The - "Heartland"

[ from the album "Infected" (1986) ]

Lyrics

Beneath the old iron bridges, across the Victorian parks

And all the frightened people running home before dark

Past the Saturday morning cinema

That lies crumbling to the ground

And the piss stinking shopping centre in the new side of town

I've come to smell the seasons change and watch the city

As the sun goes down again

Here comes another winter

Of long shadows and 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 and blue blooded babies

This is the place where pensioners are raped

And 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

And 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

Here comes another winter

Of long shadows and high hopes

Here comes another winter

Waitin' for utopia

Waitin' for hell to freeze over

The ammunition's being passed and the Lord's 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 U.S.A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S.A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S. of A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S.A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S.A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S.A.

This is the 51st state - of the U.S.A.

This is the 51st state

It's good to see you're broken

But I'm not glad you're hurt

I'm just glad you're back

And that your bubble burst

The dreams that you were chasing

Have left you in the dirt

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

And all the easy money

Is flyng out the door

It's back to basics now

That you have joined the poor

You'll have to meet your neighbours

And find out what you're worth

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

You've only heard the sermons

Of how much money you are worth

Now you'll have to listen

To the rythms of the earth

There's a brand new order coming

And you will not be first

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

And all the easy money

Is flyng out the door

It's back to basics now

That you have joined the poor

There's a brand new order coming

And you will not be first

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

Our blessings don't come easy

That is just our curse

With our foot hard to the pedal

We are in reverse

We'll make more friends out walking

Than driving in that hearse

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

And all the easy money

Is flying out the door

It's back to basics now

That everyone's the poor

You'll have to meet your neighbours

And find out what you're worth

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

Things are getting better

Now that things are getting worse

MEGADETH - Endgame.

Attention! Attention! All citizens are ordered to report to their District detention centers! Do not return to your homes; do not contact anyone! Do not use any cellular or GPS devices! Surrender all weapons at once! Attention! This way to the camps!

I woke up in a black FEMA box
Darkness was all around me, in my coffin
My dreams are all nightmares anymore
And this is what I dream every night

The Leader of the New World Order, the President of the United States
Has declared anyone now residing inside the US of A
Without the RFID chip, you're just an illegal alien
An enemy combatant of America, welcome to the New World Order

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the...

A society in a society, inside the fence life as you know it stops
They got their rules of conduct and we got ours
Be quick or be dead, you crumble up and die, the clock is
Ticking so slowly and so much can happen in an hour

I learned my lessons the hard way, every scar I earned
I had to bleed, inside the day yard
A system of controlled movement, like a giant ant farm
Any time is long time, now you're not in charge of your time anymore

The Ex-President signed a secret bill that can
Land a legal US Citizen in jail and the
Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
They say a Concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!

Refuse the chip? Ha! Get persecute and beat by the
Tyranny of Mind control, for the mark of the beast
All rights removed, you're punished, captured, and enslaved
Believe me when I say, "This IS the Endgame!"
