lyrics

In coloured coats and boots and belts!
With scimitars and squat pistols!
We'll steal your books we'll steal your gold!
The greatest story ever told!

Come break your pact with government!
Those bureaucrats and militia men!
Join up, join us!
Scientists and engineers!
Bastard sons and clever queers!
Join up, join us!

With broken mast and ragged sail!
The line was cast we hooked the whale!
The ties that bind are hands that hold!
You're dying here so call it home!

You journalists and escapees!
Cattle for the colonies!
Join us, join us!
Every colour creed and face!
Remade in the pirate race!
Join up, join us!

I’m an Armada man

These Are Our Demands Oxford, UK

Keeping things sparse, fast & loud, 'These Are Our Demands' are a post punk/newwave trio who love Joy Division, Pixies, The Smiths, Nirvana, The Cure, Savages, Interpol etc along with a load of more obscure (or embarrassing) bands. We love a melody you can whistle, but we also love a fuzzbox set to strip paint. We will sweat for you! ... more
