about

RETREAT TO YOUR BUNKER was first improvised in our sessions for the album Warheads (2018), riffing on 1980s childhood memories of the cold war, the nuclear arms race, the terrifying TV film Threads and the Protect And Survive campaign of leaflets and public information films; and the potential curtailment of mental as well as physical freedom. But now we really are being told to shelter at home, with many normal daily activities banned. For the 2020 Lockdown, Adam’s original vocals are intercut with government, media and police instructions from the past few days.

Stay safe, stay sane, see you on the other side…

lyrics

It’s a lockdown.
It’s not a holiday.
The government has a lockdown in force.
Go home.
It’s not a holiday.
It’s a lockdown.
It’s a lockdown.

Retreat to your bunker.
The alarm has sounded.
Stop what you are doing.
Get yourself undergrounded.

The biggest threat this country has faced for decades.
Many lives will be lost.
More people are likely to die.
You must stay at home.

Hide, hide away.
For a thousand days, hide.

The UK is on lockdown.

More than three billion people in almost seventy countries and territories have been asked to stay at home.

Stay in your bunker.
This is a warning.
Stay in your bunker.

Stay at home at all times.

Hide, hide away,
Hide away for a thousand days.

A quarter of the world’s population is now living under some form of lockdown.

Retreat to your bunker.
The warning signs are clear.
Shut out the whole world,
Living out of cans and tins.
Shut out exterior reality.
Don’t think of anything.

If you or anyone in your household has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, then you should stay at home for fourteen days.

Hide, hide away.
For a thousand days, hide.

To ensure compliance with the government’s instruction to stay at home, we will immediately close all shops, we’ll stop all gatherings and we’ll stop all social events, excluding funerals.
If you don’t follow the rules, the police have the powers to enforce them.

The UK is on lockdown.
How long is this going to last?

Shut out the whole world,
Living out of cans and tins.
Shut out exterior reality.
Don’t think of anything.

The government has a lockdown in force.
Go home.

Retreat to your bunker.
Insulate yourself in fear.

This is a nightmare, your nightmare.
This is a nightmare.
Stay in your bunker.

We want the public to adhere to the warnings and adhere to the conditions that have been imposed now by the government.

You must stay at home.

Make sure you play your role.
Do your duty:
Stay in your hole.

This new law will now give them the power to actively disperse gatherings and to fine those who refuse to obey the lockdown.

Retreat to your bunker.
This is a warning.
Stay in your bunker

Stop gaein’ oot.
Stay in the hoose, wash your hands.

Any kind of leisure is banned.

Hide, hide away
For a thousand days.
Hide, hide away.

Every business is gonna be forced to close.
People will just eventually get bored.

Wash your hands all the time, not touching our faces.
Keep your distance from other people.

Don’t touch your face.

There is no cure for this yet.
There is no cure for this yet.

Retreat to your bunker.
The warning signs are clear.
Retreat to your bunker.
Insulate yourself in fear.

It’s too little too late. We knew it was coming.

(We) had to get a refrigerated truck to store the bodies.

Hide away
For a thousand days.
Hide.
Shut out the world.
Living out of cans and tins.
Shut out reality.
Don’t think of anything.
Stay in your bunker.
Stay in your bunker.
Stay in your bunker.
Stay.
Stay.

Stay in your bunker
Until the situation has changed.
We will inform you of updates.
Until then, stay sane.

Everybody’s gonnae die if yous all keep gaen aboot and gett’n hame wi a virus on you.

The alarm has sounded.
Stop what you are doing.
Get underground.

The UK is on lockdown.

Hide,
Hide away,
Hide,
Hide away,
For a thousand days,
Hide away.

There is no cure for this yet.
There is no cure for this yet.

This is a nightmare.
This is a nightmare.
This is a nightmare,
Your nightmare.
Stay in your bunker.
Shut out nasty reality.
Live out of cans and tins.
Don’t think of anything.

The correct response is fear.
The warning signs are clear.

We want the public to adhere to the warnings and adhere to the conditions that have been imposed now by the government.

The UK is on lockdown.

The government has a lockdown in force.

Hide,
Hide away,
Hide away,
For a thousand days.

Stay in your bunker.
Stay in your bunker.
Stay.

Stay at home at all times.

You must stay at home.

Stay in the hoose, wash your hands.

If you don’t follow the rules, the police have the powers to enforce them.

The UK is on lockdown.
How long is this going to last?

Many lives will be lost.

It’s too little, too late. We knew it was coming.

Do your duty, citizen,
And stay in your hole.

Hide, hide away
For a thousand days.
Hide deep underground.
