I ain't gonna take it no more.
I ain't gonna take it no more.
I ain't gonna stand idly by while the bridal reply of a marriage of styles is "Yeah, but what's their demographic?"

I ain't gonna take it no more.
I ain't gonna take it no more.
I ain't gonna stand idly by with a tut and a sigh while inside we all cry *out* for something new.

I ain't gonna take it no more.
I ain't gonna take it no more.
Soulless music, artless lyrics.
Goalless movements, heartless gimmicks.
Controlled and clueless, careers lasting a minute.
If this is the big life, well I ain't lookin' to live it.
We ain't pushing the boundaries, we're blowing them up.
We ain't trying to expand the scene, we want the scene to erupt.

So make some room on the floor and somebody bolt the doors cos tonight.. we ain't seeking applause.
Tonight.. Well, gee… we're just looking to have some good new-fashioned fun, y'all.

    General CommentThis is wicked. I think a comment on the plastic nature of the music business these days. No one lets things happen they try and induce them. They try to hard and things end up going bad. So Dan and Pip make the change and say "Right, lets not try and be the next big thing, lets just be a thing and hope we get big, lets not try and breck the mould, let just pretend its not there".

    Do you think David Bowie woke up and tried to change music for ever? No, he just wanted to do his own thing and if that changed the world then good luck. (but later he did do it just for the effect I know this)
