Left us to burn She gathered up the whole collection Paid the bailiffs with her purse she did Pit ponies and the down beat shelters Rolled them up into a ball she did See her waltzing in her middle aged heels See her get on the blodd red ground Starts the kindling in the poorest fields and.. Left us to burn One day ships will never sail from hendon And the big black God is under siege She's pissed on us a sea of petrol Flicked a spark into that breeze See her waltzing in her middle aged heels See her get on the blodd red ground Starts the kindling in the poorest fields and.. Left us to burn There's no food without farms thats the weasel that you are Build an arc for your kind, filled with pain and caviar While you leave us to burn, from your safe and bloody shore While you leave us to burn, being the weasel that you are Left us to burn

about

An album that was less than easy in its conception due to the machinations of the record industry at the time that, paradoxically, had a profound and ultimately freeing effect on Martin’s approach to music making. It does contain some of his very finest songs in Spoke In The Wheel, We Are Storm and the title track that so evokes the feeling of the wanderer returning home.

‘It’s the sort of heart-warming collection that will leave listeners sighing in contentment’ – Music Week.

‘Salutation Road is the homecoming embrace you’d always hoped awaited you’ – Tim Peacock, Sounds, 2/6/90.
