"Statecontrol" as written by and Randy Fitzsimmons....
I've been around the world
I take credit for the things I've done.
I've done a lot of things and I just turned 21.
They tied me up put red tape around my hands.
I got caught in the web
Cause I didn't stand a chance.

I can't control the state I'm in
Go back in line and repeat it again.
I said "Please Mr. Doctor"
Won't you cure my disease?
I got a sore throat and I got scrubs on my knees.
No matter what I do I can't get it straight.
I tried to sort things out
But I'm still stuck in the state.

I can't control the state I'm in
Go back in line and repeat it again.
Can't control the state I'm in
Go back in line repeat again.

I'm gonna lie, I'm gonna cheat.
I'm gonna follow their lead then skip a beat.
I'm gonna lie, I'm gonna cheat
And if that don't do it I don't know what will.
I'm gonna lie I'm gonna cheat.
I'm gonna follow their lead then skip a beat.
I'm gonna lie, I'm gonna cheat.
I can't control the state I'm in
Go back in line and repeat it again.

    General Commenthaha this is a totally wicked song. the hives are definitely my favorite band. i don't really know what it means, but doesn't the part where the go "go back in line and repeat it again" sound like they're a bunch of pirates:)? all i can say is kudos

    General CommentI think it's a commentary about the government--all the politicians are liars and cheaters, setting a poor example for everyone else. So, "I'm gonna lie, I'm gonna cheat. I'm gonna follow their lead..."

    General CommentAwesome song. I'm not a huge fan of the Hives but I like this song kinda has a post-punkish sound
