Yeah.
Yeah.
Check it.

My pens a flame thrower
My eyes glazed over
Why am I chain smoking?
Who need Beethoven?
Who should I take a pop at?
Call me Jake LaMotta
I'm a crossbreed of Chopper Reid and Ray the Otter
Planet hot now, crash like Roswell
This is planet hostile, like Lee Harvey Oswald
I see scared people because I see no fair leaders
I see dead people because I see shared needles
I see liposuction. It's all thigh reduction
It's all filofaxes and nice bible bashing
Let the fat kids try it, it's called the Atkins Diet
And all this advertising kind of patronising
Calvin Klein and polo sport
But the truth stays quiet like a coma ward
I keep on seeing Bill Hick's ghost; he says world war four will be fought with sticks and stones

Wondering
Is this there all there is
Since I was, since I began to be
Wondering
Is this there all there is
Since I was, since I began to be

Must be my greatest triumph
My face light up by the lightning as I watch the raven's fly off.
In my grave I turn, but what did I die of?
Next to the flowers propped up it's my biog
It took a lot to compile
So have a read and see, it's all there is chronological file.
Rock's fall from the skies
As we chant war cries
And we dance around the fire like lord of the flies
They think you need a shrink to relate
But all you need is the strength to throw a sink through the wall and escape
Why not place a gun up to my head and end all of it?
When I can turn water into wine and then walk on it
Germ warfare we've been warned of it
Soon kids will take packed lunch and gas masks to school with them
But shit, surely someone should sue someone
Holy jihads, batman someone should do something

Wondering
Is this there all there is
Since I was, since I began to be
Wondering
Is this there all there is
Since I was, since I began to be

    Lyric CorrectionThe chorus is sampled from Massive Attack's "Sly", and should be

    "Wondering" not "One Life"
    and "Is this there all there is" not "Is this that all there is"

    General CommentIm pretty sure its "Ray Liotta", not Ray the Otter.
    and im not sure, but i hear "The truth stays quieter than the Cullen Report"
    and its World War Four, not three.

    Such an awesome and powerful song.
