lyrics

I’m stood here on the trapdoor waiting to drop. I’m wondering if this moment will ever stop — oh no. The beak put on his kibosh and said his fine words and now it’s me and the hangman on the edge of the earth.

Tie that noose around my neck. Make sure it’s snug and tight. I can see the padre down there with neckgear different to mine. A tiny figure being tortured to death. Around his neck is hung a sign. I guess it’s got His name on. Praise hallelujah! That would be right.

Oh Take me higher and higher and higher! And higher and higher and higher! Dash me lower and lower and lower! And higher and higher and higher. And lower and lower and lower!

Raise him to the ceiling! Dash him to the floor! Raise him to the ceiling! Dash him to the floor! Raise him to the ceiling! Dash him to the floor! Throw him out the window, kick him out the door!

You’re a slave to your education, a slave to your nation, a slave to your lover, a slave to the weather, a slave to the state, a slave to your fate. There’s a grave for the needle, a groove for your freedom! Freedom!

And when my neck snaps I’ll be thinking of you. We’ll all find out if The Naked Lunch was really true after all. Won’t you come to the ball?

I just hope that no-one’s too badly hurt coz all the assembled multitudes are about to get down to work! They’re gonna go berzerk.

It breaks my heart it has to end like this, all this fire and brimstone and the endless abyss. Someone’s taking the piss!

You won’t learn fuck all from sitting around fussing to a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury and signifying nothing. Twenty to the dozen!

Earthquakes, lightning and thunder.
Signs taken for wonders.

Signs... Taken for wonders.
Gods… taken for creatures.
Bugs… taken for features.

You’re one of us. You’re one of us. You’re one of us. You’re one of us. You’re one of us...
