Our society what a drag
Another nervous breakdown another fag
You can't get to sleep 'cause you lost your pills
And the protien tablets make you ill

Chorus:
Our society - what a drag!

Drive around in a smashed-up car
Sometimes you wonder who you are
You look depressed as you walk upstairs
'Cause you lost your job and no one cares

Chorus

See the police men running round
Driving culture underground
They get paid to put you away
'Cause that's how the system works these days

Chorus

Join the people on the dole
They lost interest years ago
What hope is there for you and me
If this is our society

    General CommentYeah, he's referring to smoking. Haven't you noticed in songs like "cancer" that he's talking about getting cancer from smoking, not from say...gay sex? It's British slang for a cigarette.
    Anyways, this is one of my alltime fave Subhumans songs. Everyone can relate to how fucked up the world makes us feel.

    General CommentThe Subhumans are one of my favorite bands. And this is a good song, but The Subhumans don't seem like they'd be homophobs, I don't like the line "Another nervous breakdown another fag" but I dont know, it could just be about someone confused about there sexuality or something.
