London’s burning! London’s burning!

All across the town, all across the night
Everybody’s driving with full headlights
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
Everybody’s sitting ’round watching television!

London’s burning with boredom now
London’s burning dial 99999

I’m up and down the Westway, in an’ out the lights
What a great traffic system – it’s so bright
I can’t think of a better way to spend the night
Then speeding around underneath the yellow lights

London’s burning with boredom now
London’s burning dial 99999

Now I’m in the subway and I’m looking for the flat
This one leads to this block, this one leads to that
The wind howls through the empty blocks looking for a home
I run through the empty stone because I’m all alone

    Superb work. Looks awesome on that shirt too :)

  • Thank you! I was trying for a sort of Pop Art look. The shirt was the hardest to do. I filled the red colour in on the computer because I wanted that even colour that Pop Art usually has. What prompted me to do this was some Pop Art images of Paris Hilton that I saw.
