lyrics

I never believed in the concept of evil
You do what you do but people need reason
People need bad luck
Bad luck like me

I met you in June and you'd flowered in the April
You were fecund in bloom
Your blossom was delightful
But I guess you were bad luck
Bad luck like me

We'll go where the wildness goes
We'll live where the wildness lives

I swore to be true but with love there came murder
And with the final blunt blow I started to wonder
If there's such a thing as bad blood
Bad blood like me

We'll go where the wildness goes
We'll stay where the wildness stays
We'll live where the wildness lives
Come come to me

I'm ready for hell if that's where I'm going
If in heaven I see you then it's bad luck for me

We'll go where the wildness goes
We'll stay where the wildness stays
We'll live where the wildness lives
Come come to me

So give me a drink and a needle and thread
And push me away to the shore
I'm leaving my sins where the good lord won't go
I'm leaving all hope at the door

GIve me a drink and a god length of rope
I've done what I came here for
I know that I've killed and by the blood on my tongue
I know that I'm headed for more

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
