Nagasaki Nightmare

they´re always there high in the sky
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
pretty as a picture in the general´s eye
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
they´ve done it once, they´ll do it again. they´ll shower us all in their deadly rain.
nagasaki nightmare...

fishing children fish in the imperial waters
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
sons and lovers, lovers and daughters
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
cherry blossom hanging on the cherry blossom tree, flash, blinding flash, then there´s nothing to see.
nagasaki nightmare...

dying, they´re still dying, one by one
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
darkness in the land of the rising sun
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
lesson, learnt the lesson? no, cos no one really cares, it´s so easy to be silent, just to cover up your fears.
nagasaki nightmare...

so, they die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
and live with the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
will you stand by and let it happen again? nightmare death in the deadly rain.
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare

live with the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
and die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare, nagasaki nightmare
nightmare comes in deadly rain, nightmare, nightmare, nightmare rain
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare

manmade power, manmade pain, nagasaki nightmare
deadly rain, deadly rain, nagasaki nightmare
they´ll do it again, shower us in rain, deadly, deadly, deadly rain
nagasaki nightmare, nagasaki nightmare

Big A, Little A

big a, little a, bouncing b. the system might have got you but it won´t get me
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
external control are you gonna let them get you? do you wanna be a prisoner in the boundaries they set you?
you say you want to be yourself, by christ do you think they´ll let you? they´re out to get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you.

hello, hello, hello, this is the lord god, can you hear? hellfire and damnation´s what i´ve got for you down there.
on earth i have ambassadors, archbishop, vicar, pope. we´ll blind you with morality, you´d best abandon any hope.
we´re telling you you´d better pray cos you were born in sin, right from the start we´ll build a cell and then we´ll lock you in.
we sit in holy judgement condemning those that stray, we offer our forgiveness, but first we´ll make you pay.

external control are you gonna let them get you? do you wanna be a prisoner in the boundaries they set you?
you say you want to be yourself, by christ do you think they´ll let you? they´re out to get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you.

hello, hello, hello, now here´s a message from your queen, as figurehead of the status quo I set the social scene
I´m most concerned about my people, I want to give them peace, so I´m making sure they stay in line with my army and police
my prisons and my mental homes have ever open doors, for those amongst my subjects who dare to ask for more
unruliness and disrespect are things I can´t allow, so I´ll see the peasents grovel if they refuse to bow
external control are you gonna let them get you? do you wanna be a prisoner in the boundaries they set you?
you say you want to be yourself, by christ do you think they´ll let you? they´re out to get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you, get you.

introducing the prime sinister, she´s a mother to us all, like the dutch boys finger in the dyke her arse is in the wall
holding back the future waiting for the seas to part, if moses did it with his faith, she´ll do it with an army
who at times of threatened crisis are certain to be there, guarding national heritage no matter what or where
palaces for kings and queens, mansions for the rich, protection for the wealthy, defence of privilege
they´ve learnt the ropes in ireland, engaged in civil war, fighting for the ruling classes in their battle against the poor
so ireland´s just an island? it´s an island of the mind. great britain? future? bollocks, you´d better look behind
round every other corner stands P.C. 1984, guardian of the future, he´ll implement the law
he´s there as a grim reminder that no matter what you do, big brothers system´s always therewith his beady eyes on you
from god to local bobby, in home and street and school, they´ve got your name and number while you´ve just got their rule
we´ve got to look for methods to undermine those powers, it´s time to change the tables, the future must be ours

big a, little a, bouncing b. the system might have got you but it won´t get me

be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do. I am he and she is she, but you´re the only you
no one else has got your eyes, can see the things you see, it´s up to you to change your life and my life´s up to me
the problems that you suffer from are problems that you make, the shit we have to climb through is the shit we choose to take
if you don´t like the life you live, change it now it´s yours, nothing has effect if you don´t recognise the cause
if the programme´s not the one you want, get up, turn off the set, it´s only you that can decide what life you´re gonna get
if you don´t like religion, you can be the antichrist, if you´re tired of politics you can be an anarchist
but no one ever changed the church by pulling down a steeple, and you´ll never change the system by bombing number ten
system´s just aren´t made of bricks they´re mostly made of people, you may send them into hiding, but they´ll be back again
if you don´t like the rules they make, refuse to play their game, if you don´t want to be a number, don´t give them your name
if you don´t want to be caught out, refuse to hear their question, silence is a virtue, use it for your own protection
they´ll try to make you play their game, refuse to show your face, if you don´t want to be beaten down, refuse to join their race
be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do. I am he and she is she but you´re the only you
