Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey

The power goes direct to my head
Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey
The future ain�t what is should have been

Seen better times
But she always shines
Battersea

Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey
Fell in love with what looks like a flying V
Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey
Status Quo versus danger zone

Seen better times
But she always shines
Battersea

Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey
Battersea Odyssey

(Battersea or Battersey?)

    My InterpretationI am from Battersea from a long time ago, Battersea has changed dramatically since I was a kid. The song to me, speaks about a Battersea that once was, a working class, industrial area in comparison to now, a yuppieized area, that has lost much of its original character. The first verse, with reference to the old power station, which is presently being torn down to make place for yuppie apartments.
    'The power goes direct to my head' I am from Battersea! you can't tell me no better! 'The future ain't what it should've been' It should have stayed as it should, not what it is now.
    'seen better times, but she always shines, Battersea' referring again back to those good old days.
    'Fell in love with what looks like a flying v' sums up the passion of the Battersea people, they are so passionate, and anyone tells them different they couldn't give a flying f'''k or two fingers, a 'v' sign as they call it in Battersea.
    Status Quo vs the danger zone, battersea people love standing up to these new people, and the new people don't like it, the new consider themselves as the normal, 'Status quo' Battersea people have adapted over the years, and have no respect for this new Battersea, Hence, 'danger zone\
