hate and war/ death or glory

Paul fucking Simonon, man. Shoulda been the biggest heartthrob that ever was. Is to me and Elizabeth, though.


Death or Glory


Every cheap hood strikes a bargain with the world
And ends up making payments on a sofa or a girl
Love 'n' hate tattooed across the knuckles of his hands
The hands that slap his kids around 'cause they don't understand
How death or glory becomes just another story
How death or glory becomes just another story
'N' every gimmick hungry yob digging gold from rock 'n' roll
Grabs the mike to tell us he'll die before he's sold
But I believe in this-and it's been tested by research
That he who fucks nun will later join the church
From every dingy basement on every dingy street
I hear every dragging handclap over every dragging beat
That's just the beat of time-the beat that must go on
If you been trying for years-then we already heard your song

i'm with you. Simonon shoulda been as famous as Sid, but, y'know, he didn't have the junkie glamour.

by the way, nice stuff -- i gave you a shoutout on my own li'l slice of blogland.
