The Fall of Mark E Smith

by This can Hurt



Nineteen Eighty Four, Eighty Five, Eighty Six
Welcome to society… Enjoy your time
We’ll tell you that you’re worthless, with a big smile
Before you stands the next boy
Fed the next lie
To be held down

Aerodynamic words are flying around
There’s nothing in this classroom that stimulates my mind
It’s rubbish, pure rubbish
I won’t be forced to toe the line - I will rebel
I’ll bite the hand that feeds
Medication – Medication – Medication
The word still haunts my mind
I refuse to be sixteen
Ritalin addicted
And dumbfound like a mime

Men without color
They don’t seem to bother
Dehumanized - Social circumcised
No escape - For the human race
Men without color
The men without sorrow
There's no regret - No conscientious mind
The feeling's fake - Make no mistakes

There is nothing
No there’s nothing
That you can’t be
If you’re free

It’s, Monday morning, school bells rings
Another day, another smoke, another drink
There’s Mark E. Smith pounding in my ears
A working class hero preaching everyone’s fears
The only man that KEEPS IT REAL
With a caustic sneer
It’s the only thing that heals
The intellectual loss
We suffer every day
The fear we get ingrained
While none of this is real
There’s just…


There’s eloquent bastards messing with our minds
30 years on, yet no progress has been made
Suits still preach on WAR, WEALTH, FAME
Envy and Desire
Still dominate the game
