about

'This is the band!' is the fourth track included in second Helene's Mates album 'II'. It's a kind of European decadent white men reggae.

lyrics

This is the band!

Do you remember where we grew up?
Right in front of a traffic light.
With the future in a broken cup
in the wrong place in the wrong time.
Yeah, we'd better blow them up
'cos we can't change their mind
or get involved in the punch-up
'cos in the end we're not so kind.

We are flies and bees stuck in the net of a giant spider.
We are troubled seas, forsaken pets. Oh oh oh oh.

What about writing of hope and faith? It seems so exciting playing in a band.
Then you grow old, get fat and grey. It's still so exciting playing in a band.
Like you were making the same mistake it is so exciting playing in a band.
What about writing of hope and faith? It seems so exciting playing in a band.

Spinning like a merry-go-round,
rattling like a washing machine.
In the most solitary place in town
dreaming of Twilight Strip.

We are flies and bees stuck in the net of a giant spider.
We are troubled seas, forsaken pets. Oh oh oh oh.

What about writing of hope and faith? It seems so exciting playing in a band.
Then you grow old, get fat and grey. It's still so exciting playing in a band.
Like you were making the same mistake, yeah it is so exciting playing in a band.
What about writing of hope and faith? It seems so exciting playing in a band.

La la la la la la...

When you're in the game you have to play
'cos it's exciting playing in a band.
Don't care about your State just care about hate
and spread love as long as you can
'cos it's exciting playing in a band.
And if you slip upon some rhymes don't worry
go and tell your friends
tell 'em it's exciting playing in a band
tell 'em it's exciting playing in a band
tell 'em it's exciting playing in a band
tell 'em it's exciting playing in a band.
