New Model Army - Vagabonds

New Model Army are an English post-punk/alternative rock band formed in Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1980 by lead singer and main composer Justin Sullivan, bassist Stuart Morrow and drummer Phil Tompkins. Sullivan has been the only continuous member of the band, which has seen numerous line-up changes in its 35 year history. Their music draws on influences across the musical spectrum, from punk and folk to soul, metal and classical. Sullivans lyrics, which range from directly political through to spiritual and personal, have always been considered as a key part of the bands appeal. The band has a loyal, global, multi-generational following often known as "The Family".




We follow the tail lights out of the city
Moving in a river of red
As the colors fade away from the dusky sunset
We roll for the darkness ahead

We are old, we are young, we are in this together
Vagabonds and children, prisoners forever
With pulses a-raging and eyes full of wonder
Kicking out behind us again

Night time, city beat, the radio is calling
The lost and lonely in vain
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces
The road smell after the rain

We are old, we are young, we are in this together
Vagabonds and children, prisoners forever
With pulses a-raging and eyes full of wonder
Kicking out behind us again

And watching as a boy alone at the quayside
The ships loading cargo in the night

Their names all calling to faraway places
The years go past, the miles go by
And still this childhood romance will not die

We are old, we are young, we are in this together
(We are old, we are young)
Vagabonds and children, prisoners forever
(Vagabonds and children)
With pulses a-raging and eyes full of wonder
(With pulses a-raging )
Kicking out behind us again
(Kicking out behind us)

We are old, we are young, we are in this together
Vagabonds and children, prisoners forever
With pulses a-raging and eyes full of wonder
Kicking out behind us again, hey, hey
