Lyrics

Never ever wanted to be with you
The only thing you gave me was the boredom I suffocated in ooh
Adrift in cheap dreams don't stop the rain
Numbed out in piss towns just wanna dig their graves ooh

Motown, Motown junk
I laughed when Lennon got shot
Twenty-one years of living and nothing means anything to me

Motown junk a lifetime of slavery
Songs of love echo underclass betrayal
Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds
Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds
Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk

I don't want 'cos I just get
All your slut heroes offer is a fear of the future ooh
Past made useless 'cos I'm dying now
Communal tyranny a jail that bleeds our wrists ooh

Motown, Motown junk
I laughed when Lennon got shot
Twenty-one years of living and nothing means anything to me

Motown junk a lifetime of slavery
Songs of love echo underclass betrayal
Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds
Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds
Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk

Motown junk a lifetime of slavery
Songs of love echo underclass betrayal
Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds
Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds
Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk

We live in urban hell, we destroy rock and roll

Sleeve Quotes

  • "Rock and roll adolescents storm into the streets of all nations. They rush into the Louvre and throw acid in the Mona Lisa's face. They open zoos, insane asylums, burst water mains with air hammers, chop the floor out of passenger plane lavatories, shoot out lighthouses, turn sewers into the water supply, administer injections with bicycle pumps, they shit on the floor of the United Nations and wipe their ass with treaties, pacts, alliances." - William Burroughs

  • "Motown junk a lifetime of slavery
    Songs of love echo underclass betrayal
    Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds
    Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds."
    - Manic Street Preachers
