"Pretty Vacant" as written by and Glen/cook Matlock....
There's no point in asking
You'll get no reply.
Oh just remember a don't decide
I got no reason it's all too much
You'll always find us
Out to lunch

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
We're vacant
Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
A-vacant

Don't ask us to attend
Cause we're not all there.
Oh don't pretend 'cause I don't care
I don't believe illusions 'cause too much is real
So stop your cheap comment
Cause we know what we feel

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
We're vacant
Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
A-vacant

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
Ah but now
And we don't care

There's no point...(etc.)
Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
We're vacant

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
A-vacant

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
Ah but now
And we don't care

We're pretty a-pretty vacant
We don't care

    General Comment"your all fucking disgusting. plain and simple. i garuntee you if you said johnny rotten was a bloody punk to his face he'd spit in yours.do you really think he'd associate himself with the douche bags who call themselves punks. think on that for a tick"

    Hehe....may'be...nowadays his passport probably says "Reality TV show contestant/Wildlife Presenter". I am not criticising him for it, if we are stupid enough to continually worry about whether John Lydon is a sell out then why should he be concerned. He never asked to be the spokesperson for a generation - they were a truly great band that went against the grain, woke everyone up and alongside a few others, opened the door for everyone else. Does the punk semantic debate really really matter ?

    General CommentIt's basically an anthem of teenage apathy. You don't want to listen to anyone, you don't bother thinking about your future, you don't feel like really doing anything constructive with yourself. And most of all, you don't care.
