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
    		
  • AUTISM
    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.
    		
  • THE CONSUMER
    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
    
    		
  • DIORAMA
    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.
    
  • FREEDOM'S GHOST
    "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
