Crass' Walls From 'Stations Of The Crass' 1979





This is one of my favorite Crass songs. A lot of people don't even realize Crass made a song like this. Walls (Fun In The Oven). It's from Stations Of The Crass (1979) and if you don't have it you should get with the program. The video below is fan made, sure but it is done kinda well and fits with the lyrics, you know what I mean? I'm just tying to give something to enjoy is all. Some visuals or something. But I think I can promise video or no video you will love this song. Joy De Vivre's vocals are perfect. I used to sing along like "toodah toodah toodah toodah toodah toodah toodah toodah", but so that you won't go through the same shame, I put the lyrics down below. C-Ya.






...desire, desire, desire, desire,
Desire, desire, desire, desire,
Desire, desire, desire, desire,
Describe, desire, defile, deny.
Defile, desire, deny, desire.
Describe, describe, describe, describe.
No air to breath inside your walls,
Left to dream inside your walls.
Left us in a wilderness,
Well I can make my paradise.
Without your walls I am alive,
No body I, in rank and file.
Girl and boy and man and wife,
Flesh your measure with a smile.
Have and hold and hold and have,
Have and hold and hold and have.
Desire, deny, deny, desire,
Have a child to justify.
Images that you apply,
I won't bow my head in shame.
I won't play the game the same,
Without your walls I am alive.
Without your walls we all survive,
Without your walls no guilt to bear.
Without your love, our love to share,
Without your walls I am alive.
Without your walls I am alive.
Without your walls I am alive.
WITHOUT YOUR WALLS I AM ALIVE...
