The Mob - No Doves Fly Here ep 1981

I'm going to guess this has been done elsewhere before and no doubt will be done again and so it should. The title track is a masterpiece which in my opinion summed up the Reagan/Thatcher era with haunting realism. With the constant threat of Nuclear annihilation that the USA and the then USSR subjected the world too in the 80's this song is a fitting anthem.


"
The sky is empty and it's turning different shades of colour,
It never did before and we never asked for war
My mind is empty and my body different shapes of torture
It never was before and we never asked for war
No-one is moving and no doves fly here
No-one is thinking and no doves fly here
No-one remembers beyond all this fear,
No doves fly here

The buildings are empty and the countryside is wasteland,
It never was before and we never asked for war.
The playgrounds are empty and the children limbless corpses,
They never were before and they never asked for war.
No-one is moving and no doves fly here,
No-one is thinking and no doves fly here,
No-one remembers beyond all this fear,
No doves fly here"
Crass Records.

Sad it's still relevant really. Completely agree. Should perhaps be on every blog ever. Or made 'World Anthem' or something.
