One great song from their new album “Yes” (2009)

  1. True, but it could be worse. For example, right now their West End Girls video is flooded with comments from people who only like the song because it was recently featured in a Grand Theft Auto game. I'd prefer no comments at all over hundreds of comments from imbeciles who only know Pet Shop Boys music because of some damn video game. Now the youth will associate their best song with chain sawing police officers and stabbing prostitutes. Makes me want to puke.

    Detection
    Detention
    There's nowhere to defect to any more

    I'm building a wall
    a fine wall
    not so much to keep you out
    more to keep me in
    I'm building a wall
    a fine wall
    not so much to keep you out
    more to keep me in

    Back then on a bomb-site
    we were spies among the ruins
    Such precocious barbarians
    On TV we saw
    cold war

    Protection
    Prevention
    Detection
    Detention
    There's no where to defect to any more

    I'm leaving the world
    It's all wrong
    not so much what men are doing
    much more what they're not
    I'm building a wall
    a fine wall
    not so much to keep you out
    more to keep me in

    Jesus and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
    Caesar conquered Gaul
    Scouting for centurions
    on a Roman wall

    "Through the woods, the trees
    and further on the sea
    We lived in the shadow of the war
    Sand in the sandwiches
    wasps in the tea
    It was a free country"
    "Who d'you think you are? Captain Britain?"

    I'm building a wall
    a fine wall
    not so much to keep you out
    more to keep me in
    I'm losing my head
    Well, why not?
    More work for the undertaker
    means there's less for me
    I'm building a wall
    a fine wall
    not so much to keep you out
    more to keep me in

  3. I'm building a wall a fine wall not so much to keep you out more to keep me in
    I'm losing my head Well, why not?
    More work for the undertaker means there's less for me
    I'm building a wall a fine wall not so much to keep you out more to keep me in.

    This cannot be a theme song for Mr. President Donald Trump.

  5. "Who do you think you are, Captain Britain?" (Neil Tennant edited the "Captain Britain Weekly" published by Marvel Comics International Ltd beginning October !976. It lasted 39 issues and was then merged with Super Spider-Man Weekly). Neil himself left Marvel sometime in 1977 to further his journalistic ambitions/career path. The Marvel letters pages were much more entertaining while Neil was in charge.
