Hull is full of grubby slappers

lyrics

(Burning my pyjamas with a kerosene gun)
I saw an angel
(40 grubby slappers with a bellyful of fun)
but I was thwarted
The signs and sigils
couldn’t get me closer
Now I’m drinking absence
with heavy water
Don’t point the finger

There’s an angel to pay on the Clive Sullivan Way
There’s an angel to pay

Where are the powers,
thrones and dominions
The nine bright shiners
and the April rainers
There’s no sign of action
in the pleroma
The sky is empty

There’s an angel to pay on the Clive Sullivan Way
There’s an angel to pay
