MISS BLACK AMERICA (single edit) “Those who restrain desire, Do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained” – William Blake You used to be the life and soul Now you practice and preach self-control Yeah, you are obsessed with privacy but there’s none Six billion mobile phones There’s no escape Trust no-one Shout it out until your blood runs cold Shout it out until your lungs explode Shout it out, “I am Miss Black America” Shout it out, “I am Miss Black America” What happened to your urge to destroy And your mission to bring the noise? Two young boys wanking over atlases Six billion empty heads Death to the living dead Shout it out until your blood runs cold Shout it out until your lungs explode Shout it out, “I am Miss Black America” Shout it out, “I am Miss Black America” Shout it out, “They won’t take us alive “We are beyond embarrassment “We want real lives “And we’ll get them, yes, you’ll see” So, shout it out Shout a hard thing and a mean thing Let the hatred flow free Be an obscene thing Be obscene I am Miss Black America.

LOOK, MA! TOP OF THE WORLD! The city that lies about not sleeping It reels you in and eats you whole The Pit of Carkoon with buildings Our demise will be painful and slow Here’s not looking at you, kid We’re too stressed out Here’s not looking at you, kid London life results in a poisoned mind Lingering, cancerous death of the soul I will throw myself into the water Consider it euthanasia Here’s not looking at you, kid We’re all washed out Here’s not looking at you Look, Ma! Your son has failed He’s throwing himself from the top of the World Sat shaking in a stinking flat With my life on hold and my head in my hands Thinking, how will I fulfil my dreams If no-one ever snaps out of this waking sleep? And I fooled myself into thinking I could be something If I left my happy home And now I spend all my days puking London loves no-one London doesn’t feel a thing.

Dogma 03:15
DOGMA There was a World of no restraint Where no-one sneered, spat or stood in your way And there was time for me and you To do the stupid things we’ve always longed to do And we could fly, Fly far away And we were so, so happy And there was a life that never seemed to end One minute at a time There was no death And people smiled, Smiled for no reason Not spite or careless, drunken abandon And we were all up in arms And no-one thought that we were scum at all. We had been lost, but now were found.
