from the album Goths:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYGyC-kF06w

lyrics:

[Verse 1]
There's indifference on the wind
But a faint gust of hope
At a club nobody goes to
With a musty velvet rope
Guys in Motörhead jackets
Who knew him way back when
Haven't raised a drink in years
But now meet up again
To remember how it was
When they all thought they'd move away
And ride in Lotus 7s
Through the London streets one day

[Chorus 1]
Nobody ever gets away
Even the best of us come back some day
To the unmarked rooms, where the dry dust breeds
Andrew Eldritch is moving back to Leeds

[Verse 2]
There's a rusted fog machine
In a concrete storage space
Letter-number combinations
With no meaning on its face
They won't make these anymore
It's a wooden coach-n-four
No-one will even steal it
If you leave it by the door
No sign to mark it's going
No tombstone for its grave
There will be goodbyes by dozens
So practice being brave

[Chorus 2]
No-one anticipates the rush
The breezy feeling of the faceless crush
At the end of things, where the selvage bleeds
Andrew Eldritch is moving back to Leeds

[Bridge]
They don't throw him a parade
He just comes in on a train
One suitcase in his hand
And an old army backpack
From the second world war
From a Leipzig secondhand store

[Verse 3]
Pick the keys up from the agent
Everything's been taken care of
No big changes in the roadways
Since you've left that I'm aware of
A few old buildings gone to dust
And some new ones in the way
They'll look just like the old ones
When the winds have had their say
See the children bound for London
You'll all be back too
Everybody tests the membrane
But no-one pushes through

[Chorus 3]
Come on boys that'll be enough
You'd think your old friends wouldn't play so tough
Like a basket by the Nile, hiding down among the reeds
Andrew Eldritch is moving back to Leeds

I was not expecting that to sound like that!

Anyone know why a lo fi folk rock band would write a song about Von?
