Bad Girl She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl One, two, one, two, three, four She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl Out in the streets with nothing to do She's so mean big eyes on you She's a bad girl with nothing to do She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl One, two, one, two, three, four

Angel In The Dark Back to reality I'm just a sin I'm a memory From a pleasant dream Angel in the dark Dressed in black to save my day Angel in the dark Dressed in black to save my day

Primitive I wanna walk and live like a primitive I wanna work and stink like a sex machine I wanna burn in hell like a human being Somebody will have to guess my name Somebody will have to guess my name oh, baby, it's a long way to nowhere

Somerstown Every time I close the windows of my soul I take a trip to the shadows of my world But the call of the town is so strong and so loud and it makes me wanna live in Somerstown Every time I see the junkies outside my door Swinging their needles and praying for another score But the call of the town is so strong and so loud and it makes me wanna live in Somerstown I don't know what to do I want a room with a view I want to stay with you In the heart of Somerstown

BEDSIT CITY(STREETS OF LONDON) In the heart of the city lives a man in a bedsit in a bedsit In his room cabin fever lost his dreams in a bedsit in a bedsit In the streets of London covered in gold is a shadow in the distance a pain for the world he came from the flatlands the stinking suburbs he lives in the streets Streets of London

Universe Every boy needs a girl Like every flower needs a bee It's the law of the universe Every dream has an end Like every story has its slaves It's the law of the universe Night just follows the day Day just follows the night Moon just kissed the sun And every day is just like the other night I don't know what's wrong Life's such a joke I follow the rules of the universe I don't know what's wrong Life's such a joke I live by the rules of the universe

Reason to resist: I,m just a Fungus in the heart of society I,m just the one who takes what you give Why don,t you tell me Why don,t you tell me why don,t you give me a reason to resist I,m just a victim living in the killing zone I kill my idols with the course of my songs Why don,t you tell me Why don,t you tell me why don,t you give me a reason to resist Don,t be scared of tomorrow , it,s a moment to resist Don,t be scared of tomorrow , it,s a moment to resist

Too Many Shut Ups Too many questions drive a man insane I'm waiting for reactions from my little brain I look to myself and I feel so bad I'll start a new religion with god in hell Too too many shut ups Too too many shut ups Middle class lobotomy cos your brain got no energy Middle class lobotomy cos your brain got no energy

Isto é a máxima do rock 'n ' roll. 4 miudos portugueses, conhecidos como os The Parkinsons, mudaram-se para Londres e, numa dieta de sujidade, distorcao e feedback, vivem para partir tudo e deixar tudo em confusao..."

"… a banda tornou-se rapidamente na banda estrela de Camden, com os seus concertos caoticos, inevitavelmente atraindo a atenção dos olheiros da industria discográfica.
