"The Whole Point Of No Return" as written by and Paul John Weller....
The lords and ladies pass a ruling
That sons and girls go hand in land
From good stock and the best breeding
Paid for by the servile class
Who have been told all lie in state
To bow down forth and face their fate
Its so easy.
So, so easy

All righteousness did build thy arrow
To shoot it straight into their lies
Who would expect the mighty sparrow
Could rid our world of all their kind?

Rising up and taking back
The property of every man
Oh its easy.
So, so easy

Rising up to break this thing
From family trees the dukes do swing
Just one blow to scratch the itch
The laws made for and by the rich
It would be easy.
So, so easy.

    General CommentPaul Weller shouts to the bottom (not top!) this time, telling the servile class they can revolt, in a socialist anthem that is beautifully composed. It shoots an arrow through both classism/elitism and capitalism, attacking the principles of inheritance, which assures the criticized state, can retain its grip.

    The lyrics imply a violent revolution is necessary (mightiest arrow ...to shoot ....to rid of all world of their kind....just one blow...), a message that certainly not without its own criticism.

    I listen to this song alone, and sing along, even if I don't agree with its angry advice on how to level the playing field.
