"15 Minutes" as written by and Nik Kershaw....
All down the streets the signs read cheaper and better technology
This capitalist vision is my nightmare, put up a sign in my face
What the fuck happened to this place?
I think we made a wrong turn now look at hte lovely concrete
I drove to my stupid job today, got stopped at an intersection
15 minutes of my life just rolled away
I looked at the guy next to me he didn't seem so happy
No ones happy but everyone's too busy to see
Let's go shopping today
Drive our fancy cars to the fancy malls and for lunch we'll have big macs
I wish I could turn the clock back to when I was ten
When I wasn't scared of everything
And everything wasn't so fucking crowded
And I wonder if my kids will ever see a horizon
Untouched by billboards and shopping malls
And I wonder if this crazy world thinks I'm the one who's crazy
What if I'm the one who's crazy?
What if I'm the one who's crazy?
I'm not crazy just frustrated

    General Commentfucking love this song. along with I Hear Things Are Just As Bad Down In Lake Erie. The Broadways are like... modern... indie... already broken-up Dead Kennedys. They're amazingly wow-wow brilliant. "No one's happy but everyone's too busy to see" is probably my favorite line of theirs. Along with "the fish are fucking dead in the water and the feelings are dead on the shore." Stop and smell the roses, you know?!?! Our society's just racing along at light speed toward a big concrete wall.
