1. Microwaved (3:27)
Systematic abuse on a daily basis.
You're a racist (you don't know why?).
Evidence of your intrusions, multiplied by my contusions.
You can't suture the future (though you might try).
Because we're cut, dried, microwaved, safe in the Knowledge that we'll all be saved.
You say there's no black in the union jack but you can't give me a single reason why.
I say there's no common wealth in the commonwealth
'Cause it's the colour of your money matters since the day the country died.
And don't you read the papers?
Economics is gonna save us and "science never sleeps."
2. 2nd Hand (3:31)
2nd hand car, 2nd hand shoes, 2nd hand point of view from the 2nd hand news.
2nd hand shirt, 2nd hand tie, 2nd hand reason from a 2nd hand lie.
2nd hand feelings, 2nd hand needs, 2nd hand sense of purpose from 2nd hand
greed.
2nd hand lives, 2nd hand pacified (buy now pay later).
'stay fresh' plane crash, 'discount' train smash.
3. Genius (4:06)
If dysfunction is our function (and if we learn by our mistakes) then I must
be some kind of genius, 'cause with me it's a religion 50,000 strong.
4. Civilised (4:39)
I don't understand.
No I don't understand.
(excuse me).
Why everything's so lame.
Why everyone's so wasted.
Why everything's so tame.
Why everyone's so sordid.
It's got to be your civilised societies (you got nothing for me).
No cheating?
No lies?
It's got to be.
5. Subject To Status (3:34)
Bet ya, they're gonna get ya.
Sooner, later, one way or another.
"Yes please" I wanna see the achilles species down on its knees.
Yes sir they're gonna save us* (*subject to status).
Absolution guaranteed* (*for a small additional fee) and the First will be
First and the last won't last.
Next time, I'm gonna get mine.
Sooner, later, one way or another.
Next scene I wanna be the malignant instant 'watch your back' guarantee.
6. W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G. (3:35)
"God awful waste-of-space dumb degenerate low-life mal-adjusted freaks."
Now I want just one day for things to go my way, low-life de-generation,
Generation.
"Got to know your place, dumb degenerate low-life, failure of the week."
If what you see is what you get then we have nothing to regret from all the things I've seen.
And when there's nothing to regret our stupid lives we'll be better yet,
At least we'll all come clean.
7. Please Sir (3:47)
Please sir tell me why there's no black superman, KKK kryptonite?
"God only makes caucasian superheroes."
Please sir tell me why we stick a man on the moon when life on earth's so cheap.
"Son, we gotta do our bit for the world trade deficit."
Please sir tell me why if 'god is love' I'm so dysfunctional.
Please sir tell me why there's so much vagrancy.
"Layabouts get a job."
Well there's an opening for a part-time una-bomber.
Please sir tell me why my life's so pitiful but "the future's so bright."
Well I'd look ahead but it burns my retinas.
8. Disposable (3:38)
You are disposable means, and this is not what it seems.
Untouchable, controllable, disposable (I chose them all).
'Cause you need to censor your dreams.
9. A Better Lie (3:13)
A better lie?
Don't even try.
Is that the best that you can do?
'Cause I don't believe you.
Is that the best that you can do?
'Cause you said it's something new.
"Come on."
And if I could be bothered I would think of a better lie (but I don't like you enough to even try).
10. Innit (2:52)
11. What's In It For Me? (2:56)
I tried my best, did all that I can.
I don't think i've got a single thing left that i can call my own.
Still at the end of the day when all's said and done, the one and only single thing left is that one burning question.
What's in it for me?
('Cause that's what really matters).
Same as the rest?
Convince me I am.
You don't need to burn the bridge in my head 'cause I'm out on my own...
What's in it for me, me, me?
('Cause that's what really matters).
12. I Don't Like It (3:53)
I don't care what you do. Production/destruction, it's nothing new.
And I don't care what you say, to die for/to buy for, it's all the same.
I don't care if it's 'new and improved' i said i don't like it.
I don't care if it's 'life-time guaranteed.'
I don't like it.
I don't care what you say.
I don't care what you say.
I don't care what you do.
I don't like it.
Just get in line 'cause it won't be long.
Don't waste my time 'cause there's nothing wrong.
No need to fight, misunderstood, 'cause you're wrong and I'm right (and I knew you would).
