Well did you hear, there’s a natural order.
Those most deserving will end up with the most.
That the cream cannot help but always rise up to the top,
Well I say: Shit floats.
If you thought things had changed,
Friend you’d better think again,
Bluntly put in the fewest of words,
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.

Now the working classes are obsolete,
They are surplus to societies needs,
So let ‘em all kill each other,
And get it made overseas.
That’s the word don’t you know,
From the guys thats running the show,
Lets be perfectly clear boys and girls,
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.

Oh feed your children on Cray fish and Lobster tails,
Find a school near the top of the league,
In theory I respect your right to exist,
I will kill ya if you move in next to me,
Ah it stinks, it sucks, it’s anthropologically unjust,
But the takings are up by a third, Oh So
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.

Your free market is perfectly natural,
Or do you think that I’m some kind of dummy,
It’s the ideal way to order the world,
Fuck the morals, does it make any money?
And if you don’t like it? Then leave.
Or use your right to protest on the street,
Yeah, use your rights but don’t imagine that it’s heard, Oh no no,
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world

    General CommentThat the cream cannot help but always rise up to the top,
    Well I say: Shit floats.
    I love that line.
    It could be about George Bush, Tony Blair etc. but I am guessing its more about bastards like Rupert Murdoch who run the media and control what people think.

    General CommentLol Achterbahnen2, I agree. I love Jarvis because he's clever. Anybody who can fit "anthropologically unjust" into a song and not sound like a complete knob deserves a medal. By the way, it's "The free market is perfectly natural / Do you think that I'm some kind of dummy?"

    Link(s)Roger Waters-Amused to Death- this song kinda copies the vocal melody so uch he even uses the world anthropologist. Ok not exactly the same word but close enough. Not saying I dont like this song, I love it.

    And when they found our shadows
    Grouped around the TV sets
    They ran down every lead

    They repeated every test
    They checked out all the data on their lists
    And then the alien anthropologists
    Admitted they were still perplexed

    But on eliminating every other reason
    For our sad demise
    They logged the only explanation left
    This species has amused itself to death

    No tears to cry no feelings left
    This species has amused itself to death
