"All The Young Fascists" as written by Karl Kippenberger, Phillip Knight, Tom Larkin and Jon Charles Toogood....
F*** the four walls that you're stuck with, f*** it
Yeah we got different opinions well f*** it
The last chance for a dance
To bring it down and lay it low
The talk the talk, talk of the last days coming
I don't believe a f***in' word of it, nothing.
For your kind. For your king
Right now you should know

That they're taking all the colours away
Can't put it back together again
They're taking all the colours away
We will never forgive
And we will never forget

Chop the tree down and replace it with nothing
They kill ideas at the push of a button
Pull your strings, do your thing
You're just a puppet right?

Fire...

And they're taking all the colours away
Can't put it back together again
They're taking all the colours away
We will never forgive
And we will never forget

Let go! [x2]
Fire... [x3]

And they're taking all the colours away
Can't put it back together again
They're taking all the colours away
We'll stay this way forever yeah

They're taking all the colours away
We will never forgive
And we will never forget

F*** the four walls that you're stuck with, f*** it
Yeah we got different opinions well f*** it
The last chance for a dance
To bring it down and lay it low

    General CommentIf there was any doubt that the 'Had are back, this has erased it. Awesome tune!! It's either about the way some countries are being governed at the moment, or a shot at the groups that criticise said government's tactics. Either works.

    General CommentIt seems to be about simple acceptance of your situation, not questioning the world around you (fascists - rigid/unquestioning?). The song says to me 'don't let anyone else fuck up something that matters to you without you doing something to stop it'

    General Commentits all about authority. anyone who has gone to a strict private school would agree with me. taking all the colours away could this symbolise individuality? can you count colours?

    General CommentThe start of the song (first couple of lines) makes me think of the ways that people limit themselves by being closed-minded.

    General CommentFirst line of the 2nd verse is referring to One Tree Hill in Auckland (I think), and how the one tree got chopped down and they didn't replace it
