Big A little A bouncing B
The sytem might have got you but it won't get me

External control are you gonna let them get you?
Do you wanna be a prisoner in the boundaries they set you?
You say you want to be yourself
do you think they'll let you?
The're out to get you

Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do
I am he and she is she but you're the only you
No one else has got your eyes, can see the things you see
It's up to you to change your life and my life's up to me


Hello, hello, hello, this is the Lord God, can you hear?
Hellfire and damnation's what I've got for you down there
On earth I have ambassadors. archbishop. vicar. pope
We'll blind you with morality, you'd best abandon any hope,
We're telling you you'b better pray cos you were born in sin
Right from the start we'll build a cell and then we'll lock you in
We sit in holy judgement kingdoming those that stray
We offer our forgiveness, but first we'll make you pay

Hello. hello. hello, now here's a message from your queen
As figurehead of the status quo I set the social scene
I'm most concerned about my people, I want to give them peace
So I'm making sure they stay in line with my army and police
My prisons and my mental homes have ever open doors
For those amongst my subjects who dare to ask for more
Unrulyness and disrepect are things I can't allow
So I'll see the peasants grovel in they refuse to bow.

Palaces for kings and queens, mansions for the rich
Protection for the wealthy, defence of privilege
They've learnt the ropes to history, engaged in civil war
Fighting for the ruling classes in their battle against the poor
Round every other corner stands 1984
Guardian of the future, he'll implement the law
he's there as a great reminder and that, no matter what you do
Big brothers system's always there with his beady eyes on you
From God to local police, in home and street and school
They've got you name and number while you've just got their rules
We've got to look for methods to undermine those powers
It's time to change the tables. the future must be ours.

Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do
I am he and she is she but you're the only you
No one else has got your eyes, can see the things you see
It's up to you to change your life and my life's up to me
Cos the problems that we suffer through are problems that we make
The shit we have to climb through is the shit we choose to take
If you don't like the life you live, change it now it's yours
Nothing has effect if you don't recognise the cause
If the programmes's not the one you want, get up, turn off the set
It's only you that can decide what life you're gonna get
If you don't like religion they say be the antichrist
If you don't like politics you can be an anarchist
But no on ever changed the church by pulling down the steeple
Systems just aren't made of bricks they're mostly made of people
And you'll never change the system by bombing number ten
You may send them into hiding, but they'll be back again
if you don't wanna play their game,refuse to show your face
If you don't want to be beating down, refuse to join their race
If you don't want to be find out, refuse to hear their questions
Silence is a vertue, use it for your own protection
Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do
I am he and she is she but you're the only you

Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do
I am he and she is she but you're the only you
No one else has got your eyes, can see the things you see
It's up to you to change you life and my life's up to me

Nice one, Dav. I haven't heard this song yet, but I like the lyrics. I wrote a song that sounds a tiny bit like that (lyrically) a month ago, called Parade. I could never envisage it as apunk song though! Maybe I should give it a go! Plug in my electric guitar, play with the distortion, get some effects on audacity...
