Album: Time Flies… But Aeroplanes Crash EP
Release Date: October 1983
When the people of the country have forgotten how do disagree
And the national economy is said to be O.K.
And the wages that you get will help you to forget
Will you keep your ideologies or throw them all away?
When the system has you beaten
Even though you haven’t eaten
Cos you can’t afford to eat and drink to keep your brain alive
You blame the system for the weather but carry on as ever
You got to work at half past 8 and come back home after 5
You can go blue in the face talking about the human race
How they got to outer space but it never stopped the wars
And how the whole of this humanity is based on greed and vanity
The ones who make decisions are the ones who make the laws
You’re still in this society so what’s your main priority?
Remain in the majority who never really cared?
Or cultivate the hate to annihilate the state
Are you prepared to die for your beliefs or just to dye your hair?
The anarchist the nihilist but can you prove that you exist
To a population who just insist that you’re just a bunch of fakes?
You can not change the system until you change your own restrictions
Communication and conviction got to kick until it breaks
