Blur – Lonesome Street lyrics

[Verse 1]
What do you got?
Mass produced in somewhere hot
You'll have to go on the Underground
To get things done here
And then you have
[?] service done
This is a place to come to, or, well, it was
I know a hot spot
Crossing on the guillotine

[Chorus]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
It's got to be that time again
And you, you will be over soon again

[Verse 2]
So get yourself up, get past [?] on your way
There's nothing to be ashamed of
Taking off again
The 514 to East Grinstead
You've set me off
[?]
And talking types will let us down
Talk, talk on your arse all night
You wanna be there

[Bridge]
Step inside the tarmac ride
To the land that time forgot
Oh, we're just gonna go there
Cracks inside the tarmac ride
To the land that crime forgot, oh no

[Outro]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
Going down to Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street
Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street

    To me this one is the only song on the album about the UK - how the far east and china has left us behind economically - and left us on our lonesome high streets with no shops open :-) The land that time/crime forgot definitely applies to the towns where I live.

    But it could be a massed produced person in somewhere hot equally and there's a bit about a yellow duck not in the lyrics.

    Maybe June being over soon again refers to Asian economies reaching middle age?
