MOORE CANTA A LOS "OCCUPY": "The Decline Of English Murder"


Si hace poco os presentábamos el primer trailer del corto guionizado por Alan Moore, ayer se estrenó la canción benéfica que nuestro autor ha escrito y grabado con su voz -con la parte musical a cargo de Joe Brown-  en apoyo a los manifestantes de los movimientos "Occupy" y "Anonymous". El tema se titula "The Decline Of English Murder" y fue ofrecido en ESTA página de "The Guardian", aunque también podéis descargarla AQUI, en la web de Occupation Records, brazo armado musical del movimiento. Para completar, os enlazamos también a la versión en You Tube, y más abajo encontraréis la letra transcrita de la canción:


She sorts out her hair in the washroom at Preston Services
Dries her hands under a notice that reads have you seen this child
And she nurses one tea for an hour in the cafeteria
Watching the truck drivers blind their fried eggs with the cutlery

And English Murder. Its all over her face.
Just waiting until the right time the wrong light boy
There'll be a photograph
With a bad 1970's fringe and a look of uncertainty

Years later you'll know the name but not where you know it from
And they've emptied the terraced row with compulsory purchases
Reasoning that they'd make more from the ground with the people gone


So he shuffles the half a mile to the nearest post office
When lads push into the queue he pretends he's not noticed them

And English murder. Its all over his face.
A low enough cold snap, a high enough gas bill
You'll skim the epitaph
And you'll possibly notice his name like somebodies you knew from school
There'll be an off the peg verse where sad has been rhymed with dad

And the houses in which they've invested their City bonuses
Have increased the property prices and therefore the homelessness

And the scabby grey anti-climb paint and withdrawn amenities
In case socialising promotes anti-social behaviour

And English murder. Its all over the place.
The bunches of flowers in pedestrian precincts
Your average psychopath, at least kills with a hammer or brick
and not with greed and incompetence

And after two or three years maybe they'll express remorse.
