|The drag of living in a Godless world When there's nothing I can change Blank white page and a head with a hole I got to push myself but I don't want to know If there's a way to escape through a bottle or five Then I'm fine I'll waste this time Endless day to the edge of the night I got to say my piece but it don't make it right I want to shake this world but I'm high as a kite And I've crossed that thin white line So I'll just waste this space I'm taking This is why I hate myself This is why I hate myself Why I hate myself, why I hate myself I hate myself and everybody else. Liars and misfits taking a hold They got a sleeve tattoo and a cliché to go And you can ask them why but they don't want to know Cos they're fine they waste your time. Young pretenders jumping the throne They give me sweet salvation, throw me a bone But when the shit comes down then I'm out on my own And I'm tired of all these lies The sounds I hear when I lay dreaming Wake me up to hear me screaming Homeless people walking the streets So I dig in my pocket get them something to eat But there's another one close and she's coming my way And I've got no change so I'm looking away And as another year brings more famine and pain And I feel so powerless, who do I blame And I know my government put me to shame So I'll just get drunk 'til the memory fades And this is why I hate myself This is why I hate myself Why I hate myself, why I hate myself I hate you Another innocent victim carried away And as the jails are filling up and the idiots say That we should string them all up as a lesson to all To end crime - why waste your time Nothings cured with a rope or a gun They're just a fix for revenge but the damage is done You got to dig at the roots Pull the desperate and weak form the slime that sucks them down But I can't change the whole damn system Shut my mouth 'cos no ones listening This is why I hate myself This is why I hate myself Why I hate myself, why I hate myself I hate myself and everybody else. I hate myself and everybody else. I hate myself and everybody else. I hate.||Another song from long ago. A similar theme to 'Powerless', but not so overtly critical of the political process. We are all happy to say what a dreadful world it is, but do very little about changing it, which occasionally induces a sensation of self-loathing in me.|
