National Hum

This song is by Constantines and appears on the album Shine A Light (2003).

Original video
Your mayor is raising fences to keep bodies off the Don Valley Parkway
Send your praises to the mechanics of the state
Singing sweetly from the mess
Into the valley of the damned

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands
Working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution

They say, "I hate that sound!
When the porcine jamboree hits my town.
I've got a few words for the graceless herd!
The state ain't my shepherd!"

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands
Working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution

Ole! to the kids
The state ain't my shepherd!

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands
Working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution
