#75 Maxïmo Park – What Did We Do To You To Deserve This?


“Let’s all pretend to tell the truth”

Con esta canción inicia el más reciente disco de Maxïmo Park, y es también la primera canción que dieron a conocer del disco.  Con Risk To Exist la banda ha experimentado algo así como una segunda juventud, sacando varios singles y teniendo un éxito moderado con todos, en especial en la estación de radio BBC 6Music. Probablemente el disco más exitoso para los de Newcastle desde aquellos lejanos tiempos de su disco debut.

Maxïmo Park – What Did We Do To You To Deserve This?

You forgot to tell the truth, now it’s too far away
When the auditors add it up in the books will you keep them at bay?
You forgot to censor yourself with your limited brain
And there’s a look upon your face that says you can’t take the strain

What’s that look upon your face?
No, this is not the good old days
What did we do to you to deserve this?
You’re doing everything you can to preserve this

You look out for your mates and yourself and that’s natural, I’d say
But then you trample over the less well off and downtrodden they stay
You forgot to mention the fact that inequality remains
And opportunity rarely knocks if your background is viewed with disdain

What’s that look upon your face?
No, this is not the good old days
What did we do to you to deserve this?
You’re doing everything you can to preserve this
Let’s all pretend to tell the truth
Above all, I hope I’ve been of use

What’s that look upon your face?
No, this is not the good old days
What did we do to you to deserve this?
You’re doing everything in your power to preserve this
Let’s all pretend to tell the truth
Above all, well I hope I’ve been of use
