In a compact on the edge of town
Security to keep the outside out
You and your friends discussing how
It seems rebellious to vote Conservative now
Your mind’s so sharp and your eyes so bright
You shine in love, you are born anointed
You mean so well, and you’ll hurt so bad
When you come to be disappointed

And I will never go home again
And we will build Jerusalem
And I don’t know about us but I know about them
And we will build Jerusalem, Jerusalem..

You know exactly how clever sounds
The soft consonants and rounded vowels
You know the land that she labours and
Your hypotheses have been confirmed
We all love The Smiths, and we dig The Clash
But the smell of leather is intoxicating
Brilliant minds, we are genii
We excel at drama and formal debating

And I am never going home again
And we will build Jerusalem
And I don’t know about us but I know about them
And we will build Jerusalem
Jerusalem (x3)

And you can take your burning goal
You can take your swords and spears
You can take your lamb of God
You can take these deadly years
You can win and win and win again
The dice are loaded, you’ll never miss

And I am never going home again
And we will build Jerusalem
And I don’t know about us but I know about them
And we will build Jerusalem
