End-of-Transmission

Has it ever been like this, before ?

Have you ever had, the wolf,

knocking at your door ?

Has it ever been like this, before ?

ETX, XYZ

I wonder what it, is that happens next.

The earth is still a-turning, It’s gone around the bend

I think that this must, Be the living end

Wholesale, retail

Gotta go and buy it

Wholesale, retail

Life’s a fucking riot

Wholesale, wholesale

Retail, retail

Wholesale, retail

It isn’t over yet

If there’s a god I think I want a refund

Uppers and downers, and round-a-bout towners

I want a packet of magical tablets

Red ones, and blue ones, and old ones, and new ones

Some that I swallow and some that I chew on

I want to take them all of the time

I want to get right out of my mind

I want to be on hallucinogenics

I want my thoughts to be synthetic

Time is still a-tickin’, it’s a terminal disease

Champion the wonder-horse-meat

<Give your dog a real treat>

Aint got no kind of future, Nowhere left to go

The international conglomerates, Make me, feel small.

Good bye fair green valley, Farewell mountain grove

There gonna build another Coca-cola superstore

So’s you’ll feel at home

Wholesale, retail

Gotta go and buy it

Wholesale, retail

Life’s a fucking riot

Wholesale, wholesale

Retail, retail

Wholesale, retail

It isn’t over yet

Fucked the telly, It’s full of shite

Fucked the town, they fucked it right

Fucked the dogs on Dovecot street,

<We want the world and we want it now>

Fuck new labour, it’s full of scum

Fuck the papers, they’re just too glum

Fuck the queen, and her fucking mum

Fuck the pope, and his fucking nuns

Fuck the lord’s, “Thy will be done”

Fuck the fucking Millenium

Fuck the fucking Millenium

Fuck the fucking Millenium
