Outcast

I've always been an outcast
From the moment I was born
I've always been an outcast
Never felt that I belong
I've always been an outcast
And I'm glad that I am bad
I've always been an outcast
For I will have the final laugh

If you hate your dirty feet
A dragging on the street
If you hate the countenance
On the people that you greet
If you hate the surgeon general
And the bollocks that he bleats
If you hate the fucking doggerel
Our lords and masters double speak
Come and join me on my island
I'm letting anybody in
Come and join me on my island
A whole new life we can begin

So if you hate the weather
Or the working for the man
If you hate the cost of life
Or their fucking master plan
If you hate the word of God
The Bible, Torah and Koran
If you hate the universe
All time and shifting sands
Come and join me on my island
I'm letting anybody in
Come and join me on my island
A whole new life we can begin

If you can dare to strip
And stand their in the nip
if you can say you're one of us
And we don't give a shit
If you can promise not to judge
Nor to speak with double tongue
If you think that you could love me
Despite all the things that I have done
Then perhaps the human race
Could actually be saved
Come join me on my island where
We will have a rave
Come and join me on my island
I'm letting anybody in
Come and join me on my island
A whole new life we can begin

I've always been an outcast
From the moment I was born
I've always been an outcast
Never felt that I belong
I've always been an outcast
And I'm glad that I am bad
I've always been an outcast
And we will have the final laugh
