The plague (Single 1983)

The plague  6:17

Begin the madness
Tear down the sign
Ideals and values
They use to keep us in line

Turn a blind eye to jobless millions
Queues of wreckage to be broken down
Leaders feed us their solutions
Mistakes the death cart clears away

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

A pig for power
Misplacing trust
Science moves fact to fiction
Disturbing dust

All this in the name of progress
While our existence is sold downstream
Religion plays upon the ruin
While Manson throws away the key

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

Don't look at me
I'm not the answer
Look to you
It's where it's at

Don't look at me
I'm not the saviour
It's up to you
To face yourself

What price the future
And Orwell's dream
All yours big brother
On twenty two inch screen

The tragedy we bleed human
Can't feed emotion to the zombie brain
And as the rat becomes exhausted
We stand to lose the game

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

The only sane man  5:34

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down

I've tried to come to terms with it all
Has it really gone this far
Love suspended frozen in a jar
I never did belong
They're staring back at me from inside the cage
I'm staring back at me
The ape's coming of age

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down

Why offer stimulation to a lost cause
You drive the nails in
Oh I can't take anymore
I'm the last one survivor I took you all
I'm the rare breed the cast off
Come on break the mould

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down
