"Come To Milton Keynes" as written by Mark King, Philip Gould, Michael David Lindup, Rowland Charles Gould and Waliou Badarou....
May I walk you home tonight
On this fine and lovely night tonight
We'll walk past the luscious houses
Through rolling lawns and lovely flowers

Our nice new town where the curtains are drawn
Where hope is started and dreams can be borne

Let us share our insanity
Go mad together in Community
Boys on the corner looking for their supper
Boys 'round the green looking for some slaughter

We used to chase dreams, now we chase the dragon
Mine is the semi with the Union Jack on

In our paradise lost we'll be finding our sanity
In this paradise found we'll be losing our way
For a brave new day

May I slash my wrists tonight?
This fine Conservative night
I was looking for a job so I came to town
I easily adopt when the chips are down

I read the ad about the private schemes
I liked the idea but now I'm not so Keyne

God bless you all, God bless

    General CommentThe rise of the 'new Town' in the mid 80's. The ideal way to live which brought drugs, gangs and racist violence. I pop at the tories and their beliefs of americanising the UK.

    General CommentMilton Keynes is a city created by the government of the time as a satellite city to London for people to commute to and from work. It was a "planned" city which was generally thought to lack a soul. During the 1980s it had one of the highest youth suicide rates in the Uk hence the comment about "may I slash my wrists tonight." It was a condemnation of the Tory polices of the day. All very nice on the outside but it hid a very dark underbelly. The idea of the upbeat music was ironic.
