New wave synth rock by The Jam. They sing about a town named Malice – and this town is an embodiment of many evil things. In this town, you might have a selection like this: either to buy yourself another beer or a new bike to your kids. Or to hide your love letters from your husband written by your old love. Or to have tears, fast and furious, when things aren’t right. Or to expect for a steady and simple life when these rosy days are few. Life is hard and it is an everyday struggle. A fight of you with people and circumstances around. But you may try to fight a town itself named Malice – if you will dare. Reference: Listen on Google Play

Town Called Malice Song Lyrics

Better stop dreaming of the quiet life
'Cos it's the one we'll never know
And quit running for that runaway bus
'Cos those rosey days are few
And...stop apologising for the things you've never done
'Cos time is short and life is cruel
But it's up to us to change
This town called Malice
Rows and rows of disused milk floats
Stand dying in the dairy yard
And a hundred lonely housewives
Clutch empty milk bottles to their hearts
Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry
It's enough to make you stop believing
When tears come fast and furious
In a town called Malice
Struggle after struggle, year after year
The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice
I'm almost stone cold dead
In a town called Malice
A whole street's belief in Sunday's roast beef
Gets dashed against the co-op
To either cut down on beer or the kids' new gear
It's a big decision in a town called Malice
The ghost of a steam train echoes down my track
It's at the moment bound for nowhere
Just going 'round and 'round
Playground kids and creaking swings
Lost laughter in the breeze
I could go on for hours and I probably will
But I'd sooner put some joy back
In this town called Malice
