lyrics

SPINNING JENNY - w.sony

the loneliness of Nietzsche
forgetfulness of good
a misbelief of painters
a silence in the wood
a seance of writers
a flickering screen
the power loom broken
in eighteen thirteen

spinning jenny
a parliament of owls
surrounds the burning frame
spinning jenny
a union is her dream
smash the damn machine
spinning jenny
a murder of crows
surround the stocking frames
spinning jenny

smash the new machines

Quaker girl shaking
at Burton’s Mill
Luddites are swinging
from Gallows Hill
He met her in the moors
they shared a common cause
she lost him in the Napoleonic Wars

spinning jenny
a murder of crows
surround the stocking frames
spinning jenny
smash the new machines
