9a/ State Of The Nation (McKella) - Live at Kozfest Festival 2016

from by Paradise 9

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This album celebrates 20 years of playing their fusion of psychedelic space rock and proto-punk, with flourishes of folk, americana, prog, dub, ambient and alt- rock at gigs and festivals around the UK. The album is a collection from those early days when the band emerged from playing at various West London singer/songwriter nights such as The Acoustic Revolution, The Troubadour and The 12 Bar Club up to last year’s Kozfest and Blind Cat festivals.

    The CD also comes with a band family tree pull out poster that details the changes in the band over the years. The CD and poster artwork have been designed by Paul ‘Woodbine’ Woodwright, who has also incorporated the artwork from the late great album cover artist, Mark Reiser.

lyrics

State of the Nation

1/

The situation's hopeless - Can I be so sure
The circumstance is changing - As they lay another law
Complicated strategy - Beyond the status quo
The system starts to fracture - And no-one wants to know

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

2/
The politicians tighten - the people start to bleed
the reason for more chaos - as the leaders start to weed
the people start to run - but there's nowhere left to go
with governments ambiguious - but do they really know

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

3/
Should the time be coming – when the system starts to break
the people start the running – running out the fake
elect a new leader -
now watch your system crack - crack

Chorus:
Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............
