Same old stuff, you've heard it all before,/ Crass being crass about the system, or is it war?/ We ain't got no humour, we don't know how to laugh,/Well if you don't fucking like it-fucking tough!/ Cos I'm the same old monkey in the same old zoo/ With the same old message trying to get through,/Screaming from the platform when the train ain't even there,/ I've got a one-way ticket, but I don't fucking care./ If what I've got to say is always much the same,/ It's cos the game the system plays is still the same old game./Senile idiots in their seats of power,/ Ancient rotting corpses breathing horror by the hour./ They're lovers of death those fucking creeps,/ Screwing our earth as our earth weeps./ Iron ladies and steel men/ waiting for their fucking war to start again./ Blood lusting nutters plan death for us all,/They'll be hiding in their bunkers as we watch the missiles fall,/ Ain't they just so decent, respectable and nice,/ Eating the fat of the land while it's us that pay the price./ Westminster's full of psychopaths with blood clots ‘stead of brains,/ Flesh hungry vultures picking our remains,/ Shitting on the world they've shat on many times before,/ Fucked it good and proper, in the name of law./ Well bollocks to the lot of you and you can fuck off too,/If your bored with what I say, no-one's asking you./ Just fuck off and have your fun,/ Hoist your Jolly Roger and wave your plastic gun,/ With your painted face and your elegant style,/ How about trying to think for a while?/As you decorate your lifestyle with cheap consumer bliss,/ Forget about loving, it's your arse you're going to kiss./ As long as they've got you under their thumb/ With T.V. lobotomy and media fun,/ They'll have their way with you, what more can I say?/ Watch out for the mind police, and have a nice day.

    General CommentIt's a real shame so few people have heard of Crass, they're one of the best punk bands you'll ever hear. For the un-initiated, Crass were one of the few bands that really tried to live by their anarchist beliefs, and they succeeded to about the greatest extent you could really expect of them. They had a rotating-door policy of band members, they wore all black (so they wouldn't get sucked into the whole "punk-fashion" thing) and they self-released all their music at pretty cheap prices (i got the "Christ -- The Album" double-album for less than most ordinary CDs cost). It's kinda hard to describe their sound, if you really need to get an idea of what they'rre like, I'd say they're like a British Dead Kennedys, but played at MDC speeds. It's kinda insulting to try to define them like that, but just to give you an idea. Give them ago, they're a fantastic band.

    And i think the lyrics here kinda speak for themselves.
