    Paranoia is in bloom,
    The PR transmissions will resume
    They'll try to, push drugs that keep us all dumbed down
    And hope that, we will never see the truth around
    (so come on)
    Another promise, another seed
    Another, packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed
    And all the, Green belts wrapped around our minds
    And endless, red tape to keep the truth confined
    (so come on)

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious
    so come on

    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the, revolution takes its toll
    If you could, flick the switch and open your third eye
    You'd see that
    We should never be afraid to die
    (so come on)

    Rise up and take the power back
    It's time the fat cats had a heart attack
    They know that their time's coming to an end
    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not enslave us
    We will be victorious

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They can not control us
    We will be victorious

    Money-men mill about Monday morning
    Another new nothing and never nearer
    Consumed at the cost that it's currently costing
    I don't dare dig any deeper down
    I don't have the head-space

    I don't understand all the figures and facts
    It'll spin around till I start panic attacking
    But there's one curve ball that states my soul
    Let me live out life and I'll stay control

    Take that away, I'll never get dressed
    Money-men milling in Monday morning
    I will go spend or I will raise warning
    I'm nothing but me and mine, so

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power

    My name's magic and it's mud
    I do bad things but I can rob
    They don't buy anything, they watch it, see
    For their time is the commodity

    The gap between art and artist grows
    I never know why I ever wrote this prose
    I write this rubbish but believe you me
    I've just never been keen on tasting redness
    But put the orange suit on, shackle my ankles
    I couldn't take that, I'd be fucking ???? off

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power

    I don't promote no violence but
    If you all got carted off
    Boys will be boys, toys'll get tossed
    Bang me up, right and rough
    I'm not a people-beater but 
    If that law gets made up on me
    Show me the cross and I'll take it on

    I don't promote no violence but
    If you all got carted off
    Boys'll be boys, toys'll get tossed
    Bang me up, right and rough
    I'm not a people-beater but
    If that law gets made up on me
    Show me the cross and I'll take it on

    (Now go low, Ha-ha-ha!)

    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want

    (Stay on the floor!)

    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want
    Tell me what you want

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power

    Yeah, I've been gone
    With who knows who
    Doing God knows what
    Don't turn it up
    I'll return at any hour
    Fuck all your law, fuck your power
