The Venom In My Veins (2005)

Lyrics (c) Steve Towson 2005. All rights reserved.

a beautiful murri girl - long drive through ipswich - tonight we storm the bastille

a beautiful murri girl
(Steve Towson)

From across the dance floor her eyes hooked on me
Dragging me into her world
I knew I was falling in love with a beautiful murri girl
Well everything the racist media dictated it smashed upon love's rocks that day
When I stared into her eyes I knew all racists are full of shit

You're my beautiful Murri girl

Well Nova set my heart alight when she started talking equal rights
The struggle for equality
For all,
Beauty, love, life and desire

You're my beautiful Murri girl

And no, one nation can't make me stay away
One nation won't make me stay away
I will make all the racists pay for my beautiful murri girl

You're my beautiful Murri girl

long drive through ipswich
(Steve Towson)

Cause it's a long drive through Ipswich
Long drive through town
Long drive through Ipswich as the sun is setting down
On me

I can see the look of anguish
Written across your face
As I lay down your weary hand
I can see you've reached the end of your race

For the poison it lies within your blood
The poison's in your belly
I can hear the banshee as she howls
Moving through the corridor

For all of your life you vested your trust
In the hands of those driven by lust
For convenience
Financial reward
Until at last you severed the cord

tonight we storm the bastille
(Steve Towson)

Right now it is one for all
For an attack on one is an attack on all
We'll dig our way underneath the prison floors
While others scale over the barbed wire walls
To free the innocent locked inside
For tonight we're taking no more of your lies

For tonight we'll break their barricades
Yes tonight we'll make them watch
For criminals have a hold of this country
And they're squeezing it for all that it's got

No more drowning lies or cheap politics
Some say you're liberal but I know you're sick
For feeding your greed from the desperate in need
Is not what I'd call a safe society

So the stage is set and all the names have been cast
The whole world's seen the colours of their hearts
So come storm the Bastille with the cry one for all
Those with belief, religion or any law
That speaks of human dignity
The sanctity of life
For this system needs fixing and it must be tonight
