Frank Turner – Our Lady Of The Campfire lyrics

Tonight is her night, and the city holds is breath,
Caught twixt life and death, as she rolls in from the suburbs,
The garrison flees and the city will burn.
Corinna rides like Boadicea tonight.
London town trembles at the sight.
Because tonight is her night.
And the youth course through the streets to lay down at her feet,
And she runs a regal eye to choose who lives and decide who dies.
Corinna rides like Boadicea tonight.
The fearful crowds part ways without a fight.
Corinna rides like Boadicea tonight.
London town trembles at the sight.
She keeps her counsel, smiles when she speaks now, from ear to ear.
She's getting married, or so they tell me, when the spring is here.
She hums a tune from a song she knows from warm summers past,
A song that was sung by kids around campfires in the quiet southwest.

    Corinna was an ancient greek poet. Hardly any of her work was ever found. I think that frank turner is adding to his collection of songs with references to the power of words. He is saying that, like boadicea, words are -eventually- futile and all records of spoken word will eventually be lost. Turner may be providing himself with a reason to write poetry and music to allow his memory to cling to this world for as long as possible. His desperation to be remembered is obvious in the song 'one foot before the other' from his new album.
