Message 349: The Daily Mail

The loonies are up on the mountain.
The lunatics have taken over the asylum.
Waiting on the rapture.

Singing, “We’ll keep your prices down,
Feed you to the hounds,
to the Daily Mail.”

Together.
Together.

You made a pig’s ear.
You made a mistake.

Paid off security and got through the gate.
You got away with it. Who will lie in wait?

Where’s the truth?
What’s the use,
In hanging around.

[unclear]

Innocent.
Fat chance.

[unclear]

Cut the queue.

[unclear]

Go back again.
President.

[unclear]

The fish in the sea.
You’ve lost command.

    the moonies are up on the mountain
    the lunatics have taken over the asylum
    waiting on the rapture
    singing “we’re here to keep your prices down, feed you to the hounds, to the dail mail”
    together, together you made a pig’s ear, you made a mistake
    paid off security and got through the gate
    you got away with it but we’re lying in wait…
    where’s the truth, what’s the use of hanging round
    lost and found
    (unclear) innocent, fat chance, no plan
    no regard for human life
    you keep time with no rhyme
    fast and loose, win or lose
    jump the queue, go back again
    president for life, lord of all
    the flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth,
    the fish in the sea have lost command

    this song ranks as one of their most vitriolic in a canon full of them, it’s like the final rant at the end of the world – very powerful indeed!
