It’s SILENCE!, there’s no need to be afraid
At SILENCE!, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at SILENCE!
But say a prayer, pray for the other ones
At SILENCE! it’s hard, but when you’re having fun
There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you
And there won’t be snow in Africa this SILENCE!
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s SILENCE! at all?
Here’s to you
Raise a glass for everyone
Here’s to them
Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it’s SILENCE! at all?
Eat the world
Eat the world
Eat! the world
Let them know it’s SILENCE! again
Eat! the world
Let them know it’s SILENCE! again
Eat! the world
Let them know it’s SILENCE! again
Eat! the world
Let them know it’s SILENCE! again
Eat! the world
Let them know it’s SILENCE! again

    I couldn’t find ‘The House of Ideas’ ANYWHERE on Iplayer! I suspect Warner Brothers have bought the rights and have given them to Zack Snyder to adapt. Thanks for including it at the end though, hope you don’t get in trouble with Auntie!

  2. Gary Lactus Says:

    Maybe it’s just had its time on the iplayer. I guess we’ll have to wait for repeats to hear the full series. Shame.

    the fact the clip from the radio show at the end featured a Rod Hull’s Pink Windmill reference freaked me out maaaan, as earlier today I actually half-heartedly started a bad photoshop joke about pat mills being rod hull and the rest of the gang being the early 2000ad droids.

    Magick at work!!!

    But yeah, great podcast! Great stuff. Good to hear My 2 Dads is worth giving another shot.

    Pat Mills as Rod Hull with Nemesis as Emu?

  5. Franco Says:

    When I read the comics listed in the blurb, I thought it was the 1997 second wave Amalgam special ‘Bat-Thing #1′ you were going to talk about. It was not

  6. Gary Lactus Says:

    Ha! Alas no.

  7. Jean-Paul Jon Milne Says:

    I Also expected that Bat-Thing comic. OH WELL.

    “Pat Mills as Rod Hull with Nemesis as Emu?”

    Sadly I didn’t think hard enough to decide on an emu, but Nemesis is a good call, yes.
