    A bit to prescient “n’est ce pas?”

    The Road To Hell (Part 1 & 2)
    Chris Rea

    [The road to hell (part 1)]

    Stood still on a highway
    I saw a woman
    By the side of the road
    With a face that I knew like my own
    Reflected in my window
    Well she walked up to my quarterlight
    And she bent down real slow
    A fearful pressure paralysed me in my shadow
    She said ‘son what are you doing here
    My fear for you has turned me in my grave’
    I said ‘mama I come to the valley of the rich
    Myself to sell’
    She said ‘son this is the road to hell’

    On your journey cross the wilderness
    From the desert to the well
    You have strayed upon the motorway to hell

    [The road to hell (part 2)]

    Well I’m standing by the river
    But the water doesn’t flow
    It boils with every poison you can think of
    And I’m underneath the streetlight
    But the light of joy I know
    Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
    And the perverted fear of violence
    Chokes the smile on every face
    And common sense is ringing out the bell
    This ain’t no technological breakdown
    Oh no, this is the road to hell

    And all the roads jam up with credit
    And there’s nothing you can do
    It’s all just bits of paper flying away from you
    Oh look out world, take a good look
    What comes down here
    You must learn this lesson fast and learn it well
    This ain’t no upwardly mobile freeway
    Oh no, this is the road
    Said this is the road
    This is the road to hell
