Track List Menu
This track has a menacing blues feel to
it, but we are introduced to the track with some British black
humour, which ends with the sound of a diving German war plane
into Track 3. The diving plane represents 'Blitzkrieg': Lightning
War. This tactic was used by the Germans, who had adopted a more
modern approach to warfare, to a devastating effect. Their opponents
were still using tactics from WW1, which offered no resistance
to Hitler's hordes. The lyrics reflect broken promises made by
Hitler, and the devastation caused by refugees fleeing the war
zone to escape from his invading army.
After the first verse we hear the British
Prime Minister respond to the
invasion of Poland. In the radio broadcast to the British
public Chamberlain informs the British people that they are now
officially at war, with their old adversary Germany.
And when you show
them your heart,
So they can tear it apart.
And all they've left is the streets,
To put a knife in your heart.
You've had your life punched into shape,
This world prepares you for rape.
Don't know why some things never change,
You've got to run, get out of this place.
Chamberlain (The British Prime Minister):
"This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German
government the final notice. Stating unless we heard from them
by 11.00 O'clock saying they were prepared to take their troops
out of Poland A state of war would exist between us. I must tell
you now that no such invitation has been received, and consequently
this country is now at war with Germany."
Don't turn your back when they come,
The tears come tumbling down.
And still they're left on the streets,
The hated, the lonely, the weak.
They've had their heads kicked into touch,
This life refuses them much.
Just who knows exactly where they go,
Back to the streets, continue the flow.
