Morrissey / A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours

Morrissey / A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours

Oh hello, I am the ghost of Troubled Joe
Hung by his pretty white neck
Some eighteen months ago
I traveled to a mystical time zone
And I missed my bed
And I soon came home

They said, “There’s too much caffeine
In your bloodstream
And a lack of real spice in your life”
I said, “Leave me alone
Because I’m alright, Dad
Surprised to still be on my own”

Oh, but don’t mention love
I’d hate the strain of the pain again
A rush and a push and the land
That we stand on is ours
It has been before so it shall be again
And people who are uglier than you and I
They take what they need, and just leave

Oh, but don’t mention love
I’d hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land
That we stand on is ours
It has been before so why can’t it be now ?
And people who are weaker than you or I
They take what they want from life

Oh, but don’t mention love
No, no, don’t mention love
A rush and a push and the land
That we stand on is ours
Your youth may be gone
But you’re still a young man
So phone me, phone me
So phone me, phone me, phone me

Oh, I think I’m in love, oh, I think I’m in love
Oh, I think I’m in love, think I’m in love
I think I’m in love, oh

PIL / Don’t Ask Me

PIL / Don’t Ask Me

What you gonna do when the river runs dry?
Put your drills in the mud, death up in the sky
Should have saved those bottles, should have saved those cans
Shouldn’t oughta listen to the plastic man

No more toilet paper, it’s gone just like the trees
Do you like the taste of honey, isn’t it best without the bees?
Be careful what you’re dong, you’re messing up my life
And if all this world’s a cake then you took too big a slice

What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t ask me ’cause I don’t know
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t blame me, I told you so

You read it in the papers, you hear it in the news
Very few listen, a spew without a view
And is it really worth it, the choking on remote
I see the red tide coming but we don’t even vote

Infection in the greenhouse, dizzy in the clouds
Oily as an ocean, heaven disemboweled
Planning on a future, well, lucky for some
Develop your body but your mind is still a slum

What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t ask me ’cause I don’t know
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t blame me, I told you so
Middle age

The product in the packaging of multi layered glam
150 layers of materials to cover up this sham
Protecting my planet you wrap it in plastic
This package is product perfected eternal

A crap in a cling wrap
I never met yet
A Prime Minister or President
Who told the truth yet?

Swimming in the slurry, burning in the heat
Wind blown is this weather, I eat what you secrete
I climb this highest derrick, the circus has no prayer
No UFO to save us and do we really care?

What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t ask me ’cause I don’t know
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t blame me, I told you so

What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
(No UFO to save us)
Don’t ask me ’cause I don’t know
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
(No fun, no religion)
Don’t blame me, I told you so

What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t ask me ’cause I don’t know
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
(Climb this highest derrick)
Don’t blame me, I told you so
(Kiss goodbye to the earth, the sun, the moon)

It’s easy to deceive a child
