about

Wrote this song about a local band which I will not name that was asking for outrageous guarantees for local shows .... I've since become very good friends with the band which will not be named ;) - Peter McLeod

lyrics

So fire the pipes and raise the flag for victory’s at hand
We’re going to rid this fuckin’ town of money grubbing bands
You started off oh so sincere but somehow you lost your way
You preach about scene unity and you turn backs away

Away, away hey !
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, away hey!
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, away hey !
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, Away

So fire the pipes and raise the flag for victory’s at hand
We’ll steal your fuckin’ riders and flatten the tires of your van
You think that your to good to play in our slummy club
Well remember that next time when we see you in the pub!

Away, away hey !
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, away hey!
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, away hey !
Fire the pipes and raise the flag
Away, Away

Away, away hey !
Away, away hey !
Away, away hey !
We'll fire the pipes …and raise..the…flag
