From the recording Colours

Lyrics

ALL GONE

Do you remember travellin’ down the lane under a canopy of trees
Standing proud above you blowing in the breeze
But the chainsaw came the smoke the flame
They burnt the whole lot down
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town

Do you remember playing in the woods a happy carefree sound
Cowboys and Indians hide and seek you never could be found
The shapes the swells the moss the dells
Growing on the edge of the downs
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town

Green to grey
Night to day
Joy turned to sorrow
Short-sighted man
New town plan
Here today gone tomorrow

A few years pass and the bus-shelter glass is shattered on the ground
Some drunken arse flat-out on the grass there’s garbage all around
The council says “It’s all a mess
We’ll pull the whole lot down”
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town

So now the carbon’s high in the azure sky and the verges turned to weeds
Some bright spark says “Let’s make a park and fill it full of trees”
It seems to me we’re led by fools with the faithless smile of a clown
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
It’s all gone all gone all gone to make a town
All Gone
