No Sympathy Lyrics

have no sympathy for you
You make me realise the who I am
I have no sympathy for thee
You make me realise the who I am not

Sympathy, sympathy
You want some don't come to me
Don't try me for sympathy
I don't feel sorry for thee
You deserve to die
You deserve to die

I have no adjectives for you
And have no feelings for the who you are
I feel no empathy for you
You make me realise the who I am not

Sympathy, sympathy
You want some don't come to me
Don't try me for sympathy
I don't feel sorry for thee
You deserve to die
You deserve to die

"I think it'll make a good football chant: "You deserve to die". I wrote it for a film called Plop that was done by a group called Fukme 99 last year. It was a film about a group of selfish people who go round imagining they were living their last days, being very primal for their last moments, but you didn't feel any sympathy for any of the characters.

"When you take the song out of that context it sounds really heavy, but at the same time you had George Bush coming into power, and he'd been sticking people on death row willy-nilly. By the time we were recording it for the album, in America, there was some pretty barbaric things going on. The fact that the attitude to human life is becoming less and less respectful, so I was George Bush singing, which was not pleasant.

"It's such an ambiguous lyric, we want to make it clear which side of the fence we stand. It's also followed by Juxtapozed With U which has a completely different, opposite lyric. No Sympathy is quite an unsettling song. The film is very heavy, but quite comic as well. There's some amazing acting in it there's a kid pretending to die, that's great acting. It's another wakeup moment. It's a fairly long album, our longest yet, it needs some spicy moments to lift it out of complacency."
