With his close-cropped hair and his tatoos here and there
And his thin pale face and his commitment to the race
Christian James was well known for going it alone
He drove the multi-story and he died in a blaze of glory.
The owner of the Golf GT
A businessman from Daventry
Got a new one from the factory.
Christian James, youngest of seven
Lived & Died and went to Heaven.
At school the teachers spoke of him
As a lad who they'd considered dim
He'd been in care and out of shame
He'd started on the dangerous game
Of nickin' cars and drivin' fast -
He knew it wouldn't last.
So, Christian's dead and who are we
To dole out fake morality?
We stand accused of gross neglect:
No chances offered. No respect.
