Microwaved 03:54
Systematic abuse on a daily basis You're a racist (You don't know why?) Evidence of your intrusions, multiplied by my contusions You can't suture the future (though you may try) Because we're cut, dried, microwaved Safe in the knowledge that we'll all be saved You say there's no black in the Union Jack But you can't give me a single reason why I say there's no common wealth in the commonwealth 'Cause it's the colour of your money matter since the day the country died And don't you read the papers? Economics is gonna save us And "science never sleeps" 'Cause "science never sleeps" Because we're cut, dried, microwaved Safe in the knowledge that we'll all be saved
