Tragically Shit
A MILLION PUBLIC FRIENDLY SOUNDS
SO FAR FROM THE UNDERGROUND
TRUE REBEL WITHOUT A CLUE
I JUST CAN'T STAND TO BE A
PART OF THIS SCENE YOU SAY IS 'COOL'
4/4 TEENAGE ANGST TO DISGUISE
A FASHION STATEMENT OVER ALL

SEE YOURSELF AS SOMEONE ELSE
70'S/80'S IN REVERSE
WEAR THE DISGUISE AND PLAY THE PART
YOU USED TO PLAY WHEN YOU WERE
SAFE IN THE KNOWLEDGE WHEN YOU THOUGHT
THAT YOU WOULD BE THE NEXT BIG THING
NOW ALL THAT'S LEFT IS JUST A SHELL
AND ANOTHER BUTLINS SUPPORT SLOT

SO WHERE IN ALL THIS DO I FIT
AMONG THE TRAGICALLY SHIT?
STAND IN LINE OR DISAPPEAR
AND JOIN THE REBEL FACTION'S SNEERS?
UNCONDITIONED TO THE DIRGE
OF YOUR GENERIC LAZY SURGE
BLIND ACCEPTANCE, PUBLIC VOTES
REPRODUCED AS THE SAME FEW NOTES
