Tonight we'll go out and look for the place
Where the first time for everything was
It isn't there anymore
Once stood monoliths
Proud as any long barrow in the hills
They are not there anymore
Only cursed new build

Tomorrow they come to demolish the past
Even the steel and the concrete and glass
All we can do is to stare at the place where they used to stand
What a waste land

Ever since they burned down the flats
I've been making a list
Of the things I need to re-buy
But it's the feeling like you know where you are
On which you can't put a price
Tower blocks built on lay lines
May be structurally unsound
Making way for your prefab hell
Our grey haven was razed to the ground

Tomorrow they come to swallow the past
Even the steel and the concrete and glass
All we can do is to stare at the place where they used to stand
Our waste land

Tonight we'll go out and look for the place
Stone circles still remain
One thousand years, no change
But they're throwing the streets away
