BRICKS AND MORTAR - Paul Weller Bricks and mortar, reflecting social change, Cracks in the pavement, reveal cravings for success Why do we try to hide our past By pulling down houses and build car parks Windows and mirrors like a two-way glass This is progress, nothing stands in it's path Yellow bulldozers, the donkey jackets and J.C.B.'s While hundreds are homeless they're constructing a parking space Why do they have to knock them down And leave the site dormant for months on end? Who has the right to make that choice? A man whose home has cost forty grand Tell me! Bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar Knock 'em down!
