they've got my mind



Empty roads filled with thoughts regurgitation
the dear death urge sitting behind frustration
stopped only by the promise of never being forgiven
landing on your feet
hand held out for the treat
from someone who used to be bigger than you
bigger than you
bigger than you
bigger than you

Boy they sell you what's yours anyway
send you off to their war
to kill things you don't abhor
call you the peace corp
just to get them more
traded for a life spent in the liquor store

Make bombs not peace
sell them in the east
then later we can all feast
from our crazy beast
that we created and made them the least
amongst us
amongst us
amongst us

The combination code for the gun cupboard has been changed
so they show you their followers tits
steal your grandmothers benefits
give you the lottery, bingo and one arm bandits
more cut blouses and mini skirts
and a name like yours in the closing credits
in some forgotten edit

Without you I'm nothing
but you tell me to sing
smile with the controling
applaud with the deafening
echo of the lying
who keep me in slavery
with one eye on the gallow tree
with one eye on the gallow tree
with one eye on the gallow tree

Will I ever be in a land where I can raise a glass
where everyone breathes laughing gas
and there's no need for a compass
or for the charity of the under classs
rhetoric inhibition or super class

But I can't speak out loud or be bold
because the young are now old
trapped in the genocide of what there fore fathers allowed
lost souls being controlled
it's cold
it's cold
it's cold

All we've got left is credit companies raping our children
ready to turn them into orphans
this is what they call Afghanistan
pretending it's happening in a far away land
red lipsticked, smiling, cartooned,every under handed brand

Goodbye wife, goodbye son, goodbye daughter and everyone
they've got my mind
they've got my mind
they've got my mind
