I decided that this is no place to hang around
Can't get excited, I don't like living in this town
I don't like living among the dead
Everybody's so boring, swaying in their bed


Everybody I know has been dead for years
They can't laugh or swear, can't even cry no tears
Don't wanna stay here with all the dead
Everybody's so boring, nothing in their heads


And all the old men go down the pub
And all the young men smoke dope and listen to dub
And it's a London office job or a sausage factory
You know they're gonna get you boy, but they'll never ever ever get me
'Cause I can't stand it and I ain't gonna hang around
If I had a chance I'd burn this shithole to the ground
Don't wanna stay here with all the dead
Everybody's so boring, nothing in their heads


And we're living and dying and I don't know why
It's just that it's senseless, underneath the English sky
I'm gonna go to the smoke and leave it all behind
I gotta get away from here before I lose my mind


We're living in a ghostown (8 times)

    General CommentI think this song is about living in a post-Invasion of the Body Snatchers world.
