lyrics

Don't dangle kudos medallions no-one else can see!
You're a beef-witted, self-appointed prophet.
The planet does not revolve around you: its full of those far more talented, deft, adept, deserving.
Prancing around with very little clothes on now;
the joke could be on you -
it's been raining in the real world,
fucking chucking it down outside!
Grey matter suicide - get a check-up!
You mangle all reason, tangle with sleaze and wrangle lies into shapes that only you can recognise.
Blinkered by reptilian race -
a lizard with a human face (?!!).
Bints and beers -
Dropped hints are falling on deaf ears;
your fingerprints are in the smears,
incriminating your alter-ego, so
get a grip! It's not about one-upmanship.
Here, have another red-hot tip:
once is a blip, and twice is a new league.
Prancing around; king of your private dirt-mound,
the joke could be on you -
it's been raining in the real world,
fucking chucking it down outside!
Grey matter suicide!
Get a check-up
from the neck up
lest one day you run out of luck.
Social glue
never bonded with you -
it's no surprise you came unstuck.
You'll probably never listen to this, you'd just misquote,
misinterpret, totally miss the message.
Despicable, unpredictable prick: all terms applicable
to this sickly mess!
Stand under the rain, un-bury your brain and wonder...
Unimpressed by your chest;
Please get dressed (you're making no friends here),
unwelcome guest (you make us all unwelcome).
Unimpressed
by your chest;
Please get dressed (you're making no friends here),
unwelcome guest (you make us all unwelcome).
Unimpressed
by your chest;
Please get dressed (you're making no friends here),
unwelcome guest (you make us all unwelcome).
(All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is...
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
All news is good news.
You leave us)
unimpressed.
