You gave me my birth
Then you made me pay
What is it worth
Cast me away
You've really done it now
Dying in my arms
You stand here with nothing
But you've still got english charm

Oh England, you're my home
My heart's heart
Crashing thunder of love
You're a place of the poor
Open wound
The lost rites of love

You cut your own throat
Then you let it bleed
Misleading your people
From what they all need
Roots forgotten
That's what we all say
But what does it matter
You're the USA

Why is it England
I feel like rubbish on your streets
Why is it when I care
If feel incomplete
Why does our future seem
Such a feat
When will our consciousness
Finally meet

Oh, whatever happened to
My green and pleasant land

    General CommentI can't believe no-one's commented on this song yet. It may be one of their earliest tunes, but it's also one of the best.
    This is from back in the the Lev's ranting days, and is a nicely political piece of songwriting. It's a lament to their homeland - England - and just what has gone wrong with it. How cosying up to America has misled the people who were born here and even the politicians who run the country. And how England's importance has diminished along with the "green and pleasant land" of previous generations.
    Remember, this was written in 1989 and it still holds as true - if not more so - now in 2005 as it did then.
