New Model Army new album - Unbroken.


Recommended Posts

New album from NMA. Great production, scathing poignant lyrics as expected from them. 

 

 

 

 

I did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong
I was always straight and honest as the days were always long
I loved the job, I loved to help the people
I did nothing wrong, they found me in the morning
Asleep in a sea of paper, coffee stains and bits of paper
Failed sums and bits of paper and nothing still resolved
Tick the boxes only, only ones and zeros
Only tick the boxes, winners and losers only
Only right and wrong, innocent or guilty only
I stare at numbers and stare at the screen
I stare at numbers and stare at the walls closing in
I stare at numbers and stare at the screen
I stare at numbers and stare at the walls closing in
Machines do not lie, machines cannot lie
The company men arrive, business suits and poker faces
I offered what I could, but I am under suspicion
Must be, Somebody knows what’s going on, somebody isn’t saying
The strategies of money, multiply with others paying
And everything decided higher up the chain
I stare at numbers and stare at the screen
I stare at numbers and stare at the walls closing in
I stare at numbers and stare at the screen
I stare at numbers and stare at the walls closing in
The circuits, the logic, it follows, it follows, it follows…
 
That if you like that you’re going to love this
If you bought that, you’re going to buy this
If you followed that, you’re going to follow this
If you agreed with that, you can agree with this
If you like that you’re going to love this
If you bought that, you’re going to buy this
If you swallowed that, you’re going to swallow this
If you agreed with that, you can agree with this
And oh, the numbers game and the losers to take the blame
And the acrid smell of fear, it seeps in everywhere
I did nothing wrong, I told them in the courtroom
Now the sound of prison metal, the sound of closing gates
And worst of all, the sound of footsteps receding.......
 
Can't understand why NMA are not bigger than they are.

Luck and timing, as with most things . . . I loved "White Coats" back in the day!

I think one of Spotify or Wikipedia alludes to the same thing.

They don't fit strongly into any 1 box musically-speaking which is probably one of the main reasons.

 

Love all the albums I've got or heard - e.g. Ghost of Cain, Impurity and Strange Brotherhood (maybe another). I must check out all the others I've missed plus this new one.
