ETX

Has it ever been like this, before ?
Have you ever had, the wolf,
knocking at your door ?
Has it ever been like this, before ?

ETX, XYZ
I wonder what it, is that happens next.
The earth is still a-turning, It’s gone around the bend
I think that this must, Be the living end

Wholesale, retail
Gotta go and buy it
Wholesale, retail
Life’s a fucking riot
Wholesale, wholesale
Retail, retail
Wholesale, retail
It isn’t over yet

If there’s a god I think I want a refund

Uppers and downers, and round-a-bout towners
I want a packet of magical tablets
Red ones, and blue ones, and old ones, and new ones
Some that I swallow and some that I chew on
I want to take them all of the time
I want to get right out of my mind
I want to be on hallucinogenics
I want my thoughts to be synthetic

Time is still a-tickin’, it’s a terminal disease

Champion the wonder-horse-meat


Aint got no kind of future, Nowhere left to go
The international conglomerates, Make me, feel small.
Good bye fair green valley, Farewell mountain grove
There gonna build another Coca-cola superstore
So’s you’ll feel at home

Wholesale, retail
Gotta go and buy it
Wholesale, retail
Life’s a fucking riot
Wholesale, wholesale
Retail, retail
Wholesale, retail
It isn’t over yet

Fucked the telly, It’s full of shite
Fucked the town, they fucked it right
Fucked the dogs on Dovecot street,

Fuck new labour, it’s full of scum
Fuck the papers, they’re just too glum
Fuck the queen, and her fucking mum
Fuck the pope, and his fucking nuns
Fuck the lord’s, “Thy will be done”
Fuck the fucking Millenium
Fuck the fucking Millenium
Fuck the fucking Millenium
