"Queen of Hearts" as written by and Falco Abraham....
Sun rises above the factory but the rays don't make it to the street.
Through the gates come the employees, beaten down and dragging their feet.
Lefties handing out pamphlets to the workers coming in.
For two people on the pavement life will never be the same again.
When she placed it in his hand, people must have seen the sparks.
Neither understands what just happened to their hearts.

"Another morning in this place has ripped me out of my dreams."
Realizing life's a waste as the whistle lets off steam.
One thing about it all is nothing's ever going to change.
It's like our progress has just stalled and everyday is the same.
"She placed it in my hand." Co-workers have seen the sparks.
"I couldn't understand what just happened to my heart."

"Hello, my name is David, your name is Veronica, let's be together, let's fall in love.
Hello, my name is David, your name is Veronica - let's be together, until the stars go out."
All we need is for something to give, the dam bursts open, we suddenly live.
"The boot off my throat, life is returning, the boot off my throat, let's all emote."

"Dawn breaks across this town and a new dawn breaks for me.
I couldn't take the pains of the underclass, trying to smile through gritted teeth.
We must now all join up and throw off the shackles of shame.
United we can't be defeated, they shall hear us proclaim.
I placed it in his hand. Comrades must have seen the sparks.
I couldn't understand what happened to my heart.

Hello, your name is David, I am Veronica, let's be together, until the water swallows us.
Hello, you must be David, I am Veronica - let's be together, until we're all finally crushed."
All we need is for something to give, the dam bursts open, we suddenly live.
"The boot off my throat, life is returning, the boot off my throat, let's all emote."
All we need is for something to give, the dam bursts open, we suddenly live.
"The boot off my throat, life is returning, the boot off my throat, let's all emote."

    General CommentThis song is easy. Factory worker bored with his work. Stuck. Falls in love with a left-wing advocate handing out pamphlets.

    I like the lyrics.. "boot off my throat, life is returning".. Seems familiar feeling to falling in love again.

    General CommentThe entire album tells a story of David and Veronica in 70's England divided into 4 acts. This being the opening song on the album, tells of David (a light blub factory worker) and Veronica (a political activist) and their first meeting and inevitable romance that follows.
