Respect The Debt

There's a light that's gone out over London
The poet of activism is through
The punks and the roots have laced up their boots
To pay the respect that is due

He sold us Revolution and we bought it
The deal, it was romantic anyway
He taught us we'd be free if we all spoke honestly
And that's why I'm standing here today

Respect the debt
I'm paying it all right back

We listened to the tapes in the garage
And practised the desperado stance
I'll never forget the day I first heard "The Palais"
And wanted to be with you in west London

Respect the debt
I'm paying it all right back
