lyrics

So let’s talk about society scars
You ask us to believe in you when we’re filling in cards
But you don’t vote, you know that’s a joke
And we have to choose a crook, a thief or a fraud

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now

So tell me – just whose laws are these
That I live by? Whose key’s in the lock they wanna force me behind?
Do we agree to bow to your terms?
These rules that I’ve got no choice but to abide by

It’s getting crowded ‘round here, can’t breathe, now I’m suffocating
Say the country’s full, it’s full of cunts if I’m pushed to say it
Now we’re supposed to be the new generation
But when a boy loves a boy – outrageous if they have a baby
Ladies loving ladies for the purposes of entertainment
Haven’t got a problem with it, grab a camera, make ‘em famous
Stranger things have happened than a relapse of the social conscience
Haven’t got a clue but still you vote them into office

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t dream
I can’t speak, I can’t shout, I can’t scream
I can’t see, I can’t hear, I can’t grieve
I can’t work and I can’t pay, now they tell me I can’t leave, why?

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now
Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of
Society’s only as rich as the poor now
