I'm going mad I wanted power so bad I stabbed my friends in the back I'm a real sad sack Insane with the ching I have tried everything Jiving in Aberdeen To Dancing Queen Gove comes in spurts - oh no it hurts Gove comes in spurts - it hurts Gove comes in spurts - oh no, 'cause Gove comes in spurts - it always hurts I just can't get wise Can't keep up with the lies Guess I'll just face the facts And wait for the axe 'Cause I come in spurts In splutters and squirts I'll never get the top job Just cos I look like Pob Gove comes in spurts Gove comes in spurts Gove comes in spurts Gove comes in spurts

Liars Wahey! 01:16
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Look out liars and you highlife scum Who gotta keep your victims poor and dumb, and dumb, and dumb Your motives and methods are not disguised By spin, or soap or smiling lies, your lies, your lies Look out here, you pompous jerk Well, look out here, I go berserk Well I guess you put us in our place Now just fuck off to outer space Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

New Treasury 01:41
Your mind's a wreck but that's fine It will disintegrate in time You're in a room the door closes Automatic (hypnosis) Automatic automatic auto New treasury, new treasury (Whisper in my ear, we go a way hey hey) New treasury, new treasury Too weak for life you have become- You can't dress properly, you're too numb. But you assume sublime poses Deep in true to life in (hypnosis) True to life in true to life in New treasury, new treasury (Whisper in my ear, we go a way hey hey) New treasury, new treasury You're in too deep you can't survive You can't be more than four foot five A day's a week, the monster dozes You're so dispassionate (hypnosis) Dispassionate, dispassionate

Betrayal take two, who did what to who? I mean, more bleeding cuts and your dull point of view Well, nothing has changed, we're helpless, we must Like it that way, it eliminates trust But those cuts can cause harm where the memory's fresh And you think you've got charm but you couldn't care less Hey Rishi, cool off, you're not so distraught You got rid of Truss, but now look what we've got Well, I'll close my eyes while your bank balance grows No, wait a while till this feeling goes The feeling gets stronger, two times emptiness In disgrace that much longer, make more of a mess The sensation of life was aroused for a while But you knocked out the stuffing, and did it with no style Then burned down the house, then told us to save With the heating down low to get used to the grave We're changed now for good, but I try to ignore Your face, the whole place being covered in sores

Go down there and thump someone, down at the Bullingdon club It will be a lot of fun, down at the Bullingdon club Think I'll buy another one, another Bullingdon club They say Rishi are you gonna go out tonight? I am uncertain I ain't feeling too right But I rip up my shirt, watch the mirror it flirt Yeah, I'm going out, out, into sight Go down there and thump someone, down at the Bullingdon club It will be a lot of fun, down at the Bullingdon club Think I'll buy another one, another Bullingdon club I say everybody's waiting, I want moments like these Oh baby get me drunk, I'll go down on my knees I could buy this whole street, this whole town, this city I can do what I want, I can do as I please Go down there and thump someone, down at the Bullingdon club It will be a lot of fun, down at the Bullingdon club Think I'll buy another one, another Bullingdon club

Says Who? 02:43
I saw what I had, so I got, I got mad, so I guess I went bad, so Now I search for new endeavors Push my buttons, whatever Who says it's good, good, good to be alive, Rishi? Same ones who keep it a perpetual jive, Rishi Who says it's good, good, good to be alive? It ain't no good, it's a perpetual dive There's nothing to win by This sort of an outcry Oh yeah we all know why 'Cause the world a person lives in Is his brain, well mine just gives in Who says it's good, good, good to be alive, Rishi? Same ones who keep it a perpetual jive, Rishi Who says it's good, good, good to be alive? It ain't no good, it's a perpetual dive It's clear that I choose to Live on, I'm so used to But still it ain't news to Ditch it say when one incentive's Gained and gone though, you're inventive Who says it's good, good, good to be alive, Rishi? Same ones who keep it a perpetual jive, Rishi Who says it's good, good, good to be alive? It ain't no good, it's a perpetual dive Once born, you're addicted And so you depict it As good, but who kicked it? You just cannot see the horror You inflict, why should you bother? Who says it's good, good, good to be alive, Rishi? Same ones who keep it a perpetual jive, Rishi Who says it's good, good, good to be alive? It ain't no good, it's a perpetual dive

I was sayin' let me out of here before I was even born, It's been a long time coming It's frustrating to observe what the mirror does But when I die it better not be for nothing I belong to the independence generation And I can't take it or leave it this time, well I belong to the independence generation but I'm getting weary hearing all the same lines Support was on the up and up, then Alex Salmond left He was a cartoon long forsaken by the public eye The new leader bowed to the king, but not the government The lawyers grabbed her throat and yelled, "God's consolation prize!" I belong to the independence generation And I can't take it or leave it this time, well I belong to the independence generation but I'm getting weary hearing all the same lines The court proceedings dragged on, evidence packed with cash Carried up flights of stairs and dropped into a vacant lot I lost my train of thought and skipped another empty march And watched them wait to lose everything they got I belong to the independence generation and I can't take it or leave it this time, well I belong to the generation but I can't take it or leave it this time I belong to the independence generation and I can't take it or leave it this time, well I belong to the generation but I can't take it or leave it this time

Late last night I went for a walk Down by the river near one of my homes I couldn't believe with my own eyes And I swear I'll never leave my home again Well, I saw Braverman walking on the weaker, walkin Coming right at me from the other side Calling out my name And, "Do not be afraid, now!" Feet begin to run, run, run Pounding in my brain I don't wanna go I don't wanna go Oh, no, no, no, no, no No, I don't wanna go Oh, oh, oh

Some Plan 02:38
I withdrew from the street and all humanlike zones. I'd had it, I'd had it - I was mush to the bones. I covered the windows, I was taking no calls Then I thought for a month inside the Downing Street walls Now I know oh They don't tell you so Now I know, oh They don't tell you so Now I know. Oh They don't tell you so But I can recall It all I called up a girl I'd known for so many years I'd seen her in shock, I'd seen the last of her tears I admired her style from her toes to her brain - She accepted my plan and so she caught the next train Now I know oh They don't tell you so. Now I know, oh They don't tell you so. Now I know. Oh They don't tell you so But I can recall It all We would secretly smile inside our surgical masks But we were serious too - we accomplished our task The schedule was followed, a budget was born Then Liz Truss departed - I was left with her form Now I know oh They don't tell you so. Now I know, oh They don't tell you so. Now I know. Oh They don't tell you so But I can recall It all Her tenure was short - I'm intent on success Her breathtaking stupidity brought out my best I once knew true love - she won't know another Life is renewed, the old PM is my lover Now I know oh They don't tell you so. Now I know, oh They don't tell you so. Now I know. Oh They don't tell you so But I can recall it all.

Another Word 01:29
Head wrapped in your hair In a brain lined with silk You learned how to talk With a mouthful of milk Erasing your face You want it so bad Who'd want to be you It's futile it's sad Oh, oh Rishi Oh, oh Rishi Oh, oh Rishi Oh oh oh I don't wanna hear another word I don't wanna hear another word I don't wanna hear another word
