The Holy Land
in Jez Butterworth's 'Jerusalem'
by William Blake
And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England's pleasant pastures seen!
And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?
Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In England's green & pleasant Land
'Who gets the contracts? Who gets the kickbacks? You're right. Kids come here. Half of them are safer here than where they are at home. You got nowhere else to go, come on over. The door's always open. You don't like it, stay away. What the hell do you think the English forest is for?'
- Johnny Byron (p.98)
