  1. UK goth post punk??? THis is straight up New Wave yo, no need to overcomplicate things with BS. Post Punk in that era is like The Cure, this sounds no way like The Cure and it's way too synth based to be considered Post-Punk to any measure. Goth? This upbeat? Nope. Just because they dress goth doesn't make the music goth. It's New Wave, even synthpop would work BAsically if it's early 1980s heavy synth based rock music = New Wave. This sound is actually totally different to what the Gymslips would typically make, their more a female punk rock band instead of this sound. Btw, this is a short version, full length is over 6 mins.

  2. And when they shall have finished their testimony,
    The beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war
    Against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
    And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city

    You can see them in the sky
    In the sky
    Watch em with their evil eye
    Evil Eye
    They're coming down to get you
    From the sky
    They want to take you home
    Take you home

    You can see them in the sky
    Watch em with their evil eye
    You can see them in the sky
    In the sky
    Watch em with their evil eye

    It's not meant for their desire
    Their desire
