Align:    
  • Margaret thatcher lives in ronald reagans underpants
  • Shes been there for eight years cooking up her plan
  • To make the uk like big brother usa
  • Where selfmade men run everything and this is what they say
  • Once upon a time, we had an idea
  • Mr big thought it was a damn good idea
  • Together we made the idea strong
  • And before too long they could do no wrong
  • As the idea grew, the number of poeple who dug our idea grew too
  • We had a graphic designed who know just what to do
  • He made it plain and simple, red, white, and blue
  • Red is the blood of the butchered indians
  • White is anglo-american apartheid
  • Blue is the gee, Ill die for my country mentality
  • That made it all possible
  • Our history, made from other peoples misery
  • Our history, built on other peoples poverty
  • A present, the world into which we were born
  • I say, I say, I say, whats the biggest thing in the world today?
  • Its the myth that men are big, that includes us lads
  • The myth that weve got a rocket down our pants
  • When I was ten years old I was bought and sold
  • On films, tv, books, and comics pushing myths about mr. big
  • Rock it!
  • To be someone in this world you gotta have a big, big penis. not much else matters, just as long as you got a wapping great wanger. the bigger it is, the bigger you are, and you gotta use it!
  • Mr bigs the bigger it is the more power it packs
  • Mr. bigs shiny prick nuclear dick
  • How do we measure up to it?
  • At the age of twelve I thought to myself,
  • Its gonna grow
  • For the next seven years I kept a check of things down below
  • It didnt grow
  • Now look at me on the front of this record
  • Admittedly its not erect
  • But even allowing for exaggeration theres no comparison with
  • This microphone, sylvester stallone
  • Electric guitars, sports cars
  • Errol flynn, jimmy hills chin
  • Stars and stripes and rubber pipes
  • F-111 bombers and the contras
  • Post office tower penis power
  • Muscles and sweat cigarettes
  • Ronald reagans smile cruise missiles
  • Fourteen, fifteen, going on sixteen
  • No growth down below if you know what I mean
  • I kept it very quiet, I felt a lot embarrassed
  • I didnt like going in public toilets
  • At school I skipped showers
  • The state separatism of an all-boys school
  • I couldnt relate to girls, there were different rules
  • I just wanted to kiss girls, put my hand up their dress
  • They did right not to like it, cause women are not *****in objects
  • Like with anything else which we keep to ourselves
  • We end up taking it out on somebody else
  • It becomes a big thing without being big at all
  • I felt very inadequate, confused, and small
  • We hide our feelings, our flesh and our blood
  • Start putting out mr. tough
  • To be larger than life, more than just flesh and blood
  • Like the dickheads at shool, at gigs and in pubs
  • We pretend it doesnt hurt as we beat each other up
  • In our confusion we want to be more than flesh and blood
  • Like the good guys on tv, we pretend to have no feelings
  • Its easier to avoid the emotional scenes
  • So when it comes to our lives we do not see who were hurting
  • Like the good guys on tv we dont know our own feelings
  • All I needed was demystification
  • And its as simple as this
  • Were flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • I say, I say, I say, whats the biggest idea in the world today?
  • Us losing sight of feeling reality, instead, putting our faith in democracy
  • Churchill died in 1965, but God and country survived
  • As a lad I was full of it, it took me twenty years to see through it
  • The state freedom which keeps us in our place
  • Which keeps us blind to how governments operate
  • And gives us war to cover our insignificance
  • And gives thatcher what she wanted
  • A vote of thanks, victory for britain, oppression with a smile
  • Everybodys happy, the union jacks on the jack again over port stanley
  • Young growing lads are watching every move
  • To see how they measure up
  • Growing up confused, like I did
  • cause their minds are being messed up
  • The pretending becomes the reality as we turn out the lights
  • Turn on the power and ***** the consequences
  • The reality of rape and violence
  • From the bedrooms to the backstreets
  • And the mass-manufactured murder
  • From the boardrooms to the battlefields
  • The reality of their freedom
  • Behind the smiles, the lies, the celebrations
  • The price of trying to forget ourselves
  • Trying to hide but still being racked with pain
  • Such is the life they would have us lead
  • To kill or be killed for their idea
  • Wheres the freedom, I ask, in being told what to do?
  • And living in constant fear?
  • If were ever gonna change this thing
  • Weve got to try and find a way from within
  • Within our heads, amidst our own confusion there must be something
  • Something real, a feeling which is not for sale
  • Which they cant drown
  • A love for each other, and a will to resist the people who will try to keep us down
  • Like northern ireland, nicaragua, grenada, libya
  • The free world penis power intervention is so similar
  • Where flesh and blood and feeling people
  • Fighting for their lives, trying to resist
  • Are tortured and killed by democracies and labelled terrorists
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • Peoplekind just trying to find some sense in all of this mess
  • Something real, a feeling which will never be for sale
  • A love for each other, a will to resist those who will build our prison walls
  • Flesh and blood and feelings, nothing more and nothing less
  • (repeat and fade)
