Spotify has Coopes Boyes and Simpson singing it, from What We Sing, back in 1999.

Shows how nothing really changes.

Coope Boyes & Simpson recorded a new version for "What We Sing" but the original version was on "No Masters", the album with tracks from all the members of No Masters Co-op in 1994. If only things would change....

From Coope, Boyes and Simpson's web site - See Reinhard's link above.


JERUSALEM REVISITED
Jim Boyes, Voice Publishing

Out there on a doomed estate
A house is burning down
Another island in a wasteland
Another black spot in the town
In a homeland for the homeless
Live the scroungers of the land
Stealing anything of value
For a little 'Cash in hand'

Out there by the petrol station
Someone's stalking with a gun
Head full of jagged images
Somebody's crazy mixed up son
Out there someone gives the order
Shoot to kill the little swine
We've got to have some law and order
In this land of iniquity and crime

And we tried to build Jerusalem
Upon this island shore
But it seems that we've forgotten what it's for

Meanwhile in the city
A jewelled finger clicks
Another zero in a total
A quick financial fix
Meanwhile at the scrap yard
Another supplementary wage
Another monument to money
Another symptom of the age

And as they close another factory
And repossess another home
As they cut another budget
Another splinter off the bone
As they waste another billion
Propping up a lost empire
There are clouds on the horizon
And the future's in the fire

And what could have been Jerusalem
Is rotten to the core
Is it Dark Satanic Mills for evermore?

And did those feet in Ancient time
Walk on England's mountains green
And the Holy Lamb was sacrificed
On every foreign field
Was it all a vain delusion
Built on centuries of war
Now all around's confusion
And the beggar's at your door

And they try to say Jerusalem's
Forever passed away
But tomorrow always brings another day

Bring back the voice of burning gold
Stifle the Silver Tongues with fire
We'll join our hands across the world
To reclaim what we most desire
We shall not cease from mental strife
For Unity is our demand
And bound together we will rise
To make this Earth a promised land
