lyrics

Philistine


Joined the in-crowd want to get out of my face
An arty-farty party I’m so out of place.


I’m hiding all the evidence
And I’m jerking on a bottle of amphetamines
I want to cover up, talking gibberish, don’t know what I’m saying
Oh Philistine

When I’m chomping down on a cigarette
As the party eulogise about the vinaigrette
I make to getaway but the culture vultures stand in my way
Oi Philistine


I’ve been talking out off my face
Pretending to engage in an intellectual conversation
A philistine who crossed the line doesn’t know his place
Trying to duck and dive out of another awkward situation


She threw me out whilst we were having sex
And informed the neighbours she won’t be doing anal yet
Stumbling in her heels and freezing in her underwear.
Oh Nancy boy

I make a bee line over to the Catacombs
There’s a DJ there who knows where I can rent a room
But the bottom line is that I don’t have cash to pay
Oi Nancy Boy


Our lives go round
The merry go round
I’ve found
We’re all hollow horses
And painted clowns

Our lives go round
We’re not so profound
I’ve found
We’re all hollow horses
And painted clowns

about

Belter UK

With lyrics sharper than razor-wire and tunes that stick the boot in, Belter is punk for grown-ups who like a dance.

Their first single "TV Junkie" was released in 2012, gaining worldwide airplay and acclaim.

It was followed in January 2013 by a 3-track EP, ‘Invisible Cat’, which sees the band’s trademark sound expanded with a little help from their friends on strings, brass and slide guitar.
