Town Called Malice (麦丽斯小镇) - The Jam

Written by:Paul Weller

Better stop dreaming of the quiet life

Cos it's the one we'll never know


And quit running for that runaway bus

Cos those rosey days are few

And - stop apologising for the things you've never done


Cos time is short and life is cruel

But it's up to us to change

This town called malice


Rows and rows of disused milk floats

Stand dying in the dairy yard

And a hundred lonely housewives clutch empty milk

Bottles to their hearts

Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry

It's enough to make you stop believing when tears come

Fast and furious

In a town called malice


Struggle after struggle - year after year

The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice

I'm almost stone cold dead

In a town called malice


A whole street's belief in Sunday's roast beef


Gets dashed against the Co-op


To either cut down on beer or the kids new gear

It's a big decision in a town called malice


The ghost of a steam train echoes down my track


It's at the moment bound for nowhere

Just going round and round

Playground kids and creaking swings

Lost laughter in the breeze

I could go on for hours and I probably will

But I'd sooner put some joy back

In this town called malice
