"Five Knuckle Shuffle" as written by Chris Carter, Peter Martin Christopherson, Genesis P-orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti....
Even more fed up
You're gonna get fed up
You're gonna be fed up
You're gonna see fed up
You're gonna get fed up
Fed Up Fed Up Fed Up
You're gonna get set up
You're gonna go fed up
You're gonna go bed up
You're gonna go sped up
You're gonna be said up
You're gonna get set up
A set up a fed up a set up
I said what a get up
Am fed up Am fed up Am fed up
Am fuckin a fed up
Am fucking my bed up
Amphetamine
Am fucking amphetamine
I've had a lobotomy
A botom a botomy
Am always a victim
Am tired of the victim
A time of the victor
A try to assess me
A try to possess me
Assess possess amphetamine
A friend of mine
Here you are
We're here are two
Are you
You over there
You're the one I am
I am that lazy boy all over take some more I need some sleep
Just an animal a twisted up animal I want to be left alone
I want that not to assess me not to possess me not to attack me
Not to distract me I even get fed up
Fed up
Don't do this I do this All my friends do this Am fed up
Am fed up I put my feet up I wish I go to sleep
Fed up fed up fed up
Deaded Deaded
Empty bottles makin noise
Alcohol
I can see you fed up
In the corner asking
Gonna be set up all night set up
Fed up
Getting your way with a five pound note

    General CommentYep. Added to that I think Genesis is quite anti drinking (except as opening up the mind or whatever) so its probably about some hick getting a handjob from a prostitute when drunk.

    General CommentHmm... I had thought it was about people with medical conditions that go to get heavy surgery(i.e. Lobotomy) and they end up to get just as fucked up and how medicine and hospitals are fucked up and can make people far worse. But the final line "getting your way with a five pound note" seems to show what others have thought as correct. I never really understood that last line... used to think he was saying "hit on the head with a five pound brick" haha
