about

Recorded and produced on tape by the band.

lyrics

Stay out of London, London is cruel
she will engulf you like a fog.
Be with your parents, parents are cool.
Read the papers, walk the dog.

Much to be said for everyday life.
These days everybody wants
to be a celebrity in strife.
Just because, just because...

...you see their pictures everywhere,
it don't amount to nothing.
They won't airbrush all your cares
away my darling.

Take this moment to remember
all the love in this room.

The phantom menace menaced you good.
Now you're a walking parakeet,
repeating the buzz words you love best.
Words that make the world sound sweet.

Evil intentions ruling your mind,
you coud be famous for fuck all.
Leaving the real world behind.
Leaving the countryside and all...

...the uneccessary noise
making you feel dizzy.
Me and the boys are back in town
listening to Thin Lizzy.

Take this time to remember
all the love in this room.

Bringing it all back home.
