Agenda 21 03:00
someone has to die so that another can live and you do not belong, you do not belong here it's become your home yet you keep killing your hosts and you do not belong, you do not belong here i heard the new order says it's here to cover up the fact we're here to kill off everyone else then it doesn't matter whatever your colour we're the same, i get it now, i want to get out and stay alive, no matter what the experts say is right and stay alive, no matter what agenda 21 don't fall for that alright don't fall for that white lie what if we made the world a better place to live? for no reason at all, for no reason at all what a poisonous thought, treasonous to be kind and it does not belong, it does not belong here control all the people, hypodermic needle immune to the brainwashing that took out the enfeeble i have no agenda, number or a letter i just want the others to be treated the same and stay alive, no matter what the experts say is right and stay alive, no matter what agenda 21 don't fall for that alright don't fall for that white lie

now listen if i was just a puppet, with strings around my fingers just typing out the message the lizards want you hearing then why do they complain so much ado about the nothing? it's like i can write what i want with no one listening it's nothing you want to know we're tracking what you view what's happening in your world it's just the effing news you don't want to be informed you want "reality" don't say you haven't been warned that nothing comes for free that's the enemy that's the effing news, you see my bosses they didn't like the first verse, they wanted you to know that they have an iron fist on my writing like an autocrat they only let me write it to plausibly deny it and fire me and scapegoat me and call it fake news whatever you wanna hear, it's bound to be out there whatever you wanna hear, it's bound to be out there whatever you wanna hear, it's bound to be out there this is the effing news

time will kill us all and in the end i don't want to die alone in space far away from here there is a line we can cross into new dimensions of time and so quantum physics saved our lives from the end of the universe death will stay at home and in the end we will live on as what we emerged from neutrons, they can't decide just which state they're in itching back and forth forever

i don’t know what i’m doing i’ve never read a journal on climate science before all that i know i know from reading wishart and bellamy don’t show me the door i heard they hid the decline and that was good enough for me and my backward advice i heard they used a trick, they used a trick, they used a trick to hide what they thought were Gaia’s white lies i know i’m just a guy but they think they know better and we’re no better than you we’re no better than you i’ve never worn a white coat or learned the difference between mean, mode and median still i feel i’m qualified they’ve never been, never been, never been in a real job argument over i know i’m just a guy but they think they know better cause they’re no better than you and we’re no better than you we’re no better than you i know i’m just a fraud but they think they know better cause they know better and we know better than you we know better than you because we are the scientists and you are just denialists because we are the nihilists and you are too idealistic it makes one cry for the days before the internet ruined our collective intellect we’re no better than you

Landlords 03:39
we need you poor, so forever poor if we compete on fruits of labour, we have none we only know how to extract, we only think of the impact when it hits our bottom lines or the types of wine we buy parasite, itchy mite, neolithic appetite greedy guts, full of pus, waiting for the bubble bust out of sight, out of mind, while you pay up i'll be fine parasite? be polite, on the street you'll be tonight if you don't pay more than half you earn how will i afford avocado? we have none we call ourselves the providers, but all we bring are the spiders they can trap you in our web as you watch our prices rise even higher

Band T-shirt 03:21
i never saw the point in wearing ties fake civility is lies there's nothing but the truth when you casualise so put on a band t-shirt, don't be shy it has to be a black one, and outsized band t-shirt, black t-shirt, band t-shirt, black nirvana and the beatles, crowded house the smashing pumpkins, weezer and pink floyd the clash and ryan adams, the spice girls as long as it's a black shirt, it is good band t-shirt, black t-shirt, band t-shirt, black

if the radar never can lie then it's time for us to die if the doomsday machine is set but there's something i don't understand that just five is enough to land a boom that cannot be come back from and blow us sky-high i told them 'false alarm' they don't wanna do us harm i might have saved the world they said 'yes you are right' 'your next shift is tonight' you might have saved the world but that's your job and i couldn't tell my wife how i might have saved her life i was meant to be a nobody but then the wall fell i told them 'false alarm' they don't wanna do us harm i might have saved the world they said 'yes you are right' 'your next shift is tonight' you might have saved the world but that's your job

Evacuate 04:28
when i used to believe in things i knew weren't true i still hoped they were now it takes a lot to want the world to be that messed up, i learned the more i talk, the worse it seems the less i say, the worse it is my world used to be so small that i could ride across it daily why did we surrender to the nine to five 'cause it means nothing the more i talk, the worse it seems the less i say, the worse it is all of my friends, they might as well all be dead evacuate all of my friends, they might as well all be dead nothing has changed evacuate

if you don't want to look stupid then you should not do stupid things it ain't hard to be misanthropic but it takes love to be the king so must you be the one to win? must you be the everything? i thought we were here to win, but you must be the everything if you don't want to look nazi then you should not do nazi things if you want to be seen as a good bada-bing, then don't do the bad so must you be the one to win? must you be the everything? i thought we were here to win, but you must be the everything
