"On the Commission" as written by and Hirst....
My spirit trembles 'round the edges
My faith is shaken to the ground
The sun broke through on Remembrance Day
And it shone on the dark end of town

Commission babies we've been cheated
They've fenced us in and put us down
And I wonder how we got lucky enough
To inherit the dark end of town

Yes, and another day begins
And the story never ends
On the commission
Housing commission town

Their cedar gates are locked and guarded
Inside you cannot hear a sound
Poor folks still vote for millionaires
Who created the dark end of town

And yes, and another day begins
And the story's wearing thin
On the commission
My housing commission town

Oh, and yes, another day begins
Seems the trouble never ends
On the commission
My housing commission town

Oh, and yes, another day begins
And the trouble never ends
On the commission
My housing commission town

Oh, and yes, another night begins
And the burning rubber spins
On the commission
My housing commission town
