"Chump Change" as written by and Jon S./davies Clayden....
I stole a page from your book
And a line from your page
And flew into a lesbian rage
Cursing mine and my own rotten luck
Another nude descends a staircase to get fucked

A city scene, darkness falls
Now skate hard down the gallery walls
Explore those themes
I hear your work is informed by queens
Hey, so is mine now

There is a plague on
There is a rat-tailed ensemble burying all of our hits in the sand
The same sand a desert uses
The same sand a desert uses

wipe that look from your face
The world is that which is the case
It is okay to be seen
Don't dethrone the drama queen
Just for putting everybody in their place

There is a plague on
There is a rat-tailed ensemble burying all of our hits in the sand
The same sand a desert uses
The same sand a desert uses
Now wipe that look from your face
The world is that which is the case
It is okay to be seen

Now wipe that look from your face
The world is that which is the case
It is okay to be seen
Don't dethrone the drama queen
Just for putting everybody in their place

Go, don't stay, just throw it all away.
There is you and then there is your body.

Go, don't stay, just throw it all away.
There is you and then there is your body.

Go, don't stay, just throw it all away.
There is you and then there is your body.

    General CommentGOD I love this song, my favourite line:
    'I stole a page from your book
    And a line from your page
    And flew into a lesbian rage'
    I always heard this line as 'take you to a lesbian rave' and thought it was cute, odd and slightly kinky, but lesbian RAGE is just as good.

    I guess I've always thought this song (at least in part) is about the pretentiousness surrounding art, particularly that everybody is trying to be 'new/unique/different'. Referencing Duchamp, is not only funny, but expresses the complete irony of the artist preaching the death of art, to now be REVERED but practically WORSHIPED by the supposedly dead institution. This goes on with 'Inspired by queens', which seems to point to something 'deep', but with the 'So is mine now' it just reveals the falseness of this, how art is often just a competition, everyone either trying to be or imitating the 'new thing'.

    Anyway, great GREAT song. Makes me want to dance!
