lyrics

I’d sell my soul to own you
I’d give it all up for control
I tried to paint you into a corner
The breaks are locked so you can’t move

When hope is gone
And no one’s free
Love becomes a vital necessity
Love becomes a valued commodity
When hope is gone
Why hope?

Line you all up like tin soldiers
Teach you to kill for the thrill
Reconstruct a whole army
In cold blood you’d die for me

When hope is gone
And no one’s free
Love becomes a vital necessity
Love becomes a valued commodity
When hope is gone
Why hope?

Oh why?
Open your eyes
See the blood dripping down your sides
Let your mind wonder
Is this all is this all is this all I can be
I’m living in solitary

When hope is gone
And no one’s free
Love becomes a vital necessity
Love becomes a valued commodity
Love becomes the silent majority
When hope is gone
Why hope?

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.

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.
