    Lyrics

    Silence in the courtyard, silence in the street
    The powers that be, out by the river, are shuffling their feet
    But the night is full of car alarms and sideways glances
    In this land of milk and money you don't get your second chances

    Cars are burning on the slip roads, the bars are full of sailors
    Spent a long time trying to fathom
    Which were trips and which were trailers
    England has been bleeding into every police station
    Into every schoolyard, every war and every state occaision

    We're the gun cotton
    They'll blast us all in line
    This time

    Children in the boxes paint the underpass red
    The graffiti on the park bench, the faded A to Z
    They'll make you fat with dreams and sequence on the silver screen
    ?Til you're full of hope and tragedy and crash-site steam

    We're the gun cotton
    They'll blast us all in line
    This time
    Said, we're the gun cotton
    They'll blast us all in line
    This time

    England has been bleeding, she can't leave it at that
    She's waiting round the corner wit a switch-blade in her hand
    So let's dance for our lives, boys, in this Vaudeville show
    Take your time and take a bow; this place is gonna blow

    We're the gun cotton
    They'll blast us all in line
    This time
    Said, we're the gun cotton
    They'll blast us all in line
    This time
    In line, this time
    In line, this time
