"PADDINGTON FRISK " as written by Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow, Robert Rolfe and Roughton Reynolds....
To be strung up on a leafless tree,
Where everything dies and nothing grows
Hanging like moulding fruit
One last dance whilst you decompose

On come the paddington spectacles
A black plague over all i admired
A vegetable breakfast, a hearty choke
Seems like the whole world conspired

But there stood a man
He was cut up, distraught and cold
but amongst the wreckage of his ribcage
his heart still thudded as he said

I regard myself as a soldier
Though a soldier of peace
I know the value of discipline and truth
I must ask you to believe me when I say…

No matter if it all backfires kid
No matter if it all goes wrong
We just gotta get ourselves together
We've sat still for far too long
Now this ain't over yet
As far as i can see…
We've only just begun.

    Song Meaning'The Paddington Frisk is a euphemism - for the 'dance' (writhing) made? by people when being hanged at Tyburn Gallows ('the leafless tree') in Paddington. The moulding fruit are decaying bodies.'

    Song Meaning'The Paddington Frisk' comes from people being hung from Tyburn Tree. It's notoriety? of having hangings of 'traitors' who were infact in most cases just either fighting for the common person or fighting against a corrupt royalty system. Look up 'Tyburn' and read into to the notable hangings that took place there. It's quite fascinating.'
