"Standards" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Oh we make the standards and we make the rules
And if you don't abide by them you must be a fool
We have the power to control the whole land
You never must question our motives or plans -
cause well outlaw your voices, do anything we want
we've nothing to fear from the nation
Well throw you out of your houses if you get too much
If we have to well destroy your generation

cause we've built up a frontage and we've gained respect
there's no one to endanger our position -

Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok

And we don't like people who stand in our way
Awareness is gonna be redundant
And ignorance is strength, we have God on our side
Look, you know what happend to winston

    Look, you know what happened to Winston

    A clear reference to 1984, novel by George Orwell
