Good Morning Britain (125/365)

Good Morning Britain - Aztec Camera with Mick Jones of The Clash: Probably one of the more obscure discs in my collection. This song has good energy, but when I went to read the lyrics again, I was stunned to realize the intensity of Roddy Frame's words. I'm amazed at what I'm rediscovering from writing this blog.

The past is steeped in shame,
But tomorrows fair game,
For a life that's fit for living
Good morning Britain.

Twenty years and a loaded gun
Funerals, fear and the war ain't won
Paddy's just a figure of fun
It lightens up the danger.
And a corporal sneers at a Catholic boy
And he eyes his gun like a rich man's toy
He's killing more than Celtic joy
Death is not a stranger.
