"Please Sir" as written by Johnathan Carter, Mark Clayden and Jon S. Clayden....
Please Sir tell me why there's no black Superman? KKK kryptonite?
"God only makes caucasian Superheroes."
Sir tell me why we stick a man on the moonwhen life on Earth's so cheap?
"Son we gotta do our bit for the World trade deficit."

Please Sir tell me why if 'God is love' i'm so dysfunctional?

Please Sir tell me why there's so much vagrancy?"Layabouts get a job"
Well there's an opening for a part time Unabomber.
Please Sir tell me why my life's so pitiful but the future's so bright?
Well i'd look ahead but it burns my retinas,

    General Commentlove the lyrics to this song, maybe not as musically good as some other of Pitchshifter's but it has a good message to that shows that this life is really fucked

    General CommentMusic with a message rather than "Oh, my life sucks!". They're sorta like the British equivalent of RATM lyrics-wise.

    General CommentI like how the song just takes oridinary catchphrases that don't really mean anything and tries to turn them around.

    "God is love"
    "The future's so bright"

    Basically the song is about how people make dumb excuses, or in this case cliches, to ignore problems in our society.
