"Closed Groove" as written by Jake Burns and Gordon Archer Ogilvie....
Punctuality, waste of time
Now nostalgia is past it's prime
History's a thing of the past
Being first just cannot last

Beep-beep I'm an answering machine
I mean to say, I say what I mean
Beep-beep, I've got very strong views
Plug in any loop tape you choose

My one single fault is modesty
I'm changing my views consistently
Amnesia's something I try to forget
Who can't kick gambling, want to bet?

Beep-beep I'm an answering machine
I mean to say, I say what I mean
Beep-beep, I've got very strong views
Plug in any loop tape you choose

The case for racism is black and white
If you want world peace you've got to fight
Must do what you're told to be free
Think what you like, if you agree with me

Beep-beep I'm an answering machine
I mean to say, I say what I mean
Beep-beep, I've got very strong views
Plug in any loop tape you choose

Speak whenever you hear this tone
Speak whenever you hear this tone
Speak whenever you hear this tone
Speak whenever you hear this tone
Speak whenever you hear this tone
Speak whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone
Scream whenever you hear this tone

    General CommentGreat song slating banal, reptitive, stupid, souless punk bands.

    General CommentCrap song, embarrasing. Read that Jake now wishes it had been left off the album. Good guitar bit at the end though.
