Anytown
Copyright George Papavgeris, Aug 2005
.

This place is not on any map, it isn't anywhere, it's Anytown.
The signs on streets and shops and offices don't tell you where you are.
You think you've been before because you have seen dozens like it all around.
If Heaven is your destination, then you could be very far.
It's been designed by the Devil, or some old witch who cast a spell
Another town that's gone to hell
Another worthless empty shell
And who'll be left to toll the bell
When this town has gone to hell

And everywhere you look around there is a cold and deathly symmetry
For street by street and row by row the flats and houses look the same.
The flowerboxes brimming over like in any decent cemetery.
There are no children in the street to kick a ball or play a game.
This prison is not fit for children; if ev'r it was you cannot tell
Another town that's gone to hell
Another worthless empty shell
And who'll be left to toll the bell
When this town has gone to hell

This used to be a market town with such a busy bustling high street
With friendly shops and public houses where you'd meet up for some jars
The shopping precinct that replaced it has a different and ugly beat
You cannot move for money brokers, tanning salons, and nail bars.
The folks don't seem to know each other, or if they know them they don't care
Another town that's gone to hell
Another worthless empty shell
And who'll be left to toll the bell
When this town has gone to hell

The night has fallen and the precinct now is taking on another life
With twelve year olds in heavy makeup looking for some gear to buy
You could get crack, you could get pills and if not careful you could get a knife
The day- and night time crooks the same except that these don't wear a tie.
Twenty-first century in England - Eleventh hour and all is well
Another town that's gone to hell
Another worthless empty shell
And who'll be left to toll the bell
When this town has gone to hell
