Lyrics

Generation Terrorists Version


Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like a born dead
Free heroin shots for those who never beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

The only free choice is refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicidal pain
Cigarettes a life-line, it's safety in death
Choking on the billboards, advertised and fed

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence
You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence

Heavenly Version

Single - You Love Us Heavenly.jpg

So the concept is this, basically
We're going to walk on this nation
We're going to walk on this racist power structure
And we're going to say to the whole damn government
Stick 'em up, motherfucker
This is a hold up
We come for what's ours

Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from sharp neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like a born dead
Free heroin shots for those who will no longer beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

The only free choice is the refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicidal comforting
Cigarette death, it's suckling
Choked on the same lines that we've all said

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we say
