Clash – Up In Heaven lyrics

The towers of London, these crumbling rocks
Reality estates that the hero's got
And every hour's marked by the chime of a clock

And whatcha gonna do when the darkness surrounds?
You can piss in the lifts which have broken down
You can watch from the debris, the last bedroom light
We're invisible here just past midnight

And the wives hate their husbands and their husbands don't care
Their children daub slogans to prove they lived there
A giant pipe organ up in the air

You can't live in a home which should not have been built by the bourgeoise clerks who bear no guilt
When the wind hits this building, this building it tilts
One day it will surely fall to the ground

Fear is just another commodity here
They sell us peeping holes to peek when we hear
A bang on the door resoundingly clear

Who would really want to move in here?
The children play faraway, the corridors are bare
This room is a cage, it's like captivity
How can anyone exist in such misery?
It has been said, "Not only here"

Allianza dollars are spent to raise the towering buildings for the weary bones of the workers to go back in the morning
It has been said, "Not only here"

Allianza dollars are spent to raise the towering buildings for the weary bones of the workers to be strong in the morning
So, go pack your things
Watching the building
It has been said

'Til they stop building

Allianza dollars are spent to raise the towering buildings for the weary bones of the workers to be strong in the morning
