Remember when I said I was gonna update the song?

 

I started on it.

 

I actually did listen to the original while I did it,sang along and counted syllables to see what fit and what didn't.Tried to paint a certain picture and retain the same voice as delano's constantine

 

Some of it I didn't change out of resepect for the original creator and other things are references I know I don't get because I'm american.I reach out to my british allies,and thou shall strike the down if thine sin is too great :

Venus of the Hardsell (updated)

 

 

Love, adventure death and glory [c'mon gais--not heartless enough to change the beginning and it's unnecessary to tamper]

The short goodbye

The whispered story

One last glance at the chameleon dance

And into the silver screen stare serene

 

I ain't no mark for the Venus of the Hardsell

 

(Say it)

I ain't no mark for the Venus of the Hardsell

 

Saints and sinners, new beginners

We can buy new faces ,buy yourself thinner

Prison cell bars and celebrity stars

Sublimation hides the death of nations

 

And it all thrives on the Venus of the Hardsell

 

(Know it)

It only thrives for the Venus of the Hardsell

 

 

 

Empty graves and shallow heads

Shallow smiles and they shot 'em dead [gun violence/war reference]

With your cell phone on your head is gone [this one's obvious]

Sail out of sight of land

Momma don't care care what happens to you

This life has consumed her too

 

 

Don't listen out for all that's said

 

Just worry when the hounds aren't fed ----------->again,this means something different to me as an american.Makes me think of the civil

(Gotta) rights movement(years ago)with dogs killing protesters.British reference please?

Worry when the hounds aren't fed

 

'Cos one mutt yaps and the pack starts baying

Blood for the gods it's cheaper than praying

Soldier-boys die but Superman still flies

Violent days - it's a permanent craze

 

It never pays to love the Venus of the Hardsell

 

(Leave it)

 

Don't fuck around with the Venus of the Hardsell

 

There're new uniforms at the church bazaar

Fanatics got the rising star

Thin dark streets ring with marching men's feet------------>this is the main one...what reference is this,any ideas?I think I know but

Past the billboard bride troops the national pride I'm not gonna be culturally insensitive

 

 

It's all supplied by the Venus of the Hardsell

 

(Fuck it!)

 

It's all supplied by the Venus of the Hardsell

 

 

Nixon's names left on the moon

Where Apollo's masons called the tune

To cast their influence from above

And damn all lunacy and love

 

You know they made her the Venus of the Hardsell

 

(Raped her)

 

You know they made her the Venus of the Hardsell

 

They're winning momma and it's getting dark

D'you think there's time to build an ark?

Tomorrow's a fiction, yesterday's a lie --->love this line so much

I had a friend stuck his works in his eye

 

Perhaps he'll die? I wonder why

we don't cry for the Venus of the Hardsell

Don't sigh for the Venus of the Hardsell

Don't lie for the Venus of the Hardsell

Don't die for the Venus of the Hardsell

-------------

 

I have version with the chords too---but obviously not posted
