THIRD WORLD WAR : CAST THE FIRST STONE
THIRD WORLD WAR
You think it's cool You want to be 'A minority' You think it's cool But you don't know your history The British Empire Rape, stole and tortured And now The Western Empire Feeds on another You'd think we wouldn't stand for shit Scorched earth for The Wretched But when you're born on a battefield You sure know it's The Third World WE ALL LOOK THE SAME (so far away) WE MUST LOOK THE SAME To you, we look the same Never look Never turn You don't even know our names Do you know my name? I DIDN'T THINK SO I DIDN'T THINK SO I DIDN'T THINK SO I DIDN'T THINK SO I don't think you know what I go through I don't think you know what I go through Do you ever feel alone? I don't think you know what I go through Do you ever feel confused? Do you ever feel alone? Are you ever coming home? What I go through... Trying to find an answer I don't think you know what I go through Do you ever feel alone? I don't think you know what I go through Do you ever feel confused? Do you ever feel alone? Are you ever coming home? I'm not crazy I wrote a letter (I hope you get it) I put it in a letter (I hope you get it) I wrote a letter (I hope you get it) I put it in a letter (I hope you get it) ... I hope you get it
THE DEATH OF CLIFF RICHARD
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know No, I don’t get it Dousing in kerosene is not putting the fire out (Get it?) Am I supposed to wait for a lifetime? Throw your worries away… See the smile the lasts for a lifetime Throw your worries away… This smile will last for a lifetime Throw your worries away… Forget your worries There’s a sale on clichés, now it’s two for one – “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” And yet if I fight and run away, I’ll live to fight another day Says this man made of plastic, with his wealth in his pocket, He’s like a spreading disease “So bring your heartache to the water’s edge, We’ll tear it out” And wait for a lifetime! See the smile the lasts for a lifetime Throw your worries away... See the smile the lasts for a lifetime Throw your worries away... See the smile... Throw your worries away... Forget your worries The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak Congratulations! No reservations! SUCH A WASTE OF TIME Polite conversations without connotations SUCH A WASTE OF TIME The cycle of expectations given in to resignation SUCH A WASTE OF LIFE Forward march over the cliff of extinction SUCH A WASTE OF LIFE This wasn’t supposed to last for a lifetime See the smile that lasts for a lifetime Not in my time
You’ll be the last one to know it. Wake up, wake up YOU’RE NOT ASLEEP, you’re DEAD WEIGHT But not yet a catastrophe Paranoia may make you think you see straight But it’s not a philosophy To make or to break You’re never quite sure but IT’S NOT YET A CATASTROPHE Not every prophet knew all the answers SO DON’T GET STUCK IN PHILOSOPHY It’s in your face It’s in your eyes, your every reason And you’re not scared. NOT SCARED ENOUGH. It’s in your face. It’s in your face. It’s in your face It’s in your eyes, your every reason And you’re not scared. NOT SCARED ENOUGH. I’ve seen you wear a T-Shirt Says you’re not afraid of The Government You can’t stand the violence It’s got something to do with The Government I’ve seen you wear a T-Shirt Says you’re not a part of The Institute And you can’t stand the violence But when needs must it’s a substitute I’ve seen you wear The T-Shirt… I think you’re part of the problem I think you’re part of the problem I think you’re part of the problem I think you’re part of the problem.
Look sharp. Music for fashion It spins too fast too turn around Your passion is a whore My fascination Disintegrates with every chord Frustration is a bore Buy this product It’s not in season Hey consumer, buy my product It’s not in season We don’t love you anymore, we don’t need you anymore Defy convention – what do I need you for? A place in the sun A place in the sun A place in the sun Is all I want I’ve a conviction Let’s pull the ART out of HEART Let’s see what HE will say In your condition I prescribe a dose of corporate cock And everything I hate
Face the future Without distortion Without Illusions Without Emotions Father says to son: "You're drowning So face the future, son, Without distortion" It doesn’t matter what you say, it doesn’t matter what you do They'll find you Within this cage without walls Perceive these men who never fall And women, chained, who have no names Facing defeat in deadly games And all the while It feeds and grows Purging our minds of depth and prose And all too late we realise It’s within us all; Oh man, It’s killed us all Now, there is a fashion that wears a noose But I can’t imagine why And there’s a good reason why we must be sacrificed But I can’t remember why That’s too many questions. You know what you want but not what you need, You learned how to fight before you learned how to bleed. You’ve stood at the door and you’ve never asked why Now it’s your turn to… Embrace extinction. Embrace extinction. Embrace extinction. At least we tried.
"Fire At The Reichstag" Did I hear someone say "Fire At The Reichstag" Thought I heard someone shout Well we know it's Freedom's Ghost 'Cos you're the one... the one who killed Freedom How long's it gonna take? We've postponed thinking about it The Event Horizon has come and gone No more last warnings in our lifetime 'Cos in our lifetime In our lifetime ... it will end How long's it gonna take? A single quality One, two, skip a few Three, four, a knock on the door Sleepwalkin' into a Police State Take this down, I think I'm gonna dictate Fukuyama ain't been heard for a while So turn round, and bend down And SMILE, here comes your fifteen minutes Now on show - 24-7 "1984" wasn't meant to be instructional But no-one reads so they use it as a manual 'Cos if we don't look, don't press, don't contest If we don't ask, don't touch, we don't test Pretty soon you'll be looking at an empty stage When they take our speech - an oversight - to complement (the) theft "Just another angry young man" I got "taught"; sure, I know who I am "Just another angry black man" I got "taught"; so now I know who I am A cliché; Paranoid and sunburnt and working my repression out Perfect as a scapegoat when th'economy ain't working out Driven to the edge by a war that can never end Given up my crutches For a state gone fascist Well, history will repeat, and the victors will delete Verses that contradict, Liberty strapped in the back seat Forget the trial; I admit treason For Freedom's Ghost and in the spirit of Reason One, two, skip a few One, two, skip a few One, two, skip a few I think I skipped a few One, two, skip a few
