Gang of four - Anthrax song and lyrics

Driving along today I experienced a sudden flashback to my youthful punk days when this song came on the radio. Complex, discordant and lyrically great, layers of sound and lyrics. An oldie and goodie



Woke up this morning desperation a.m.
What Ive been saying wont say them again
My heads not empty, its full with my brain
The thoughts Im thinking
Like piss down a drain

And I feel like a beetle on its back
And theres no way for me to get up
Lovell get you like a case of anthrax
And thats something I dont want to catch

Ought to control what I do to my mind
Nothing in there but sunshades for the blind
Only yesterday I said to myself
The things Im doing are not good
For my health

Love crops up quite a lot as something to sing about,
Cos most groups make most of their songs about falling in love
Or how happy they are to be in love,
You occasionally wonder why these groups do sing about it all the time -
Its because these groups think theres something very special about it
Either that or else its because everybody else sings about it and always has,
You know to burst into song you have to be inspired
And nothing inspires quite like love.

These groups and singers think that they appeal to everyone
By singing about love because apparently everyone has or can love
Or so they would have you believe anyway
But these groups seem to go along with what, the belief
That love is deep in everyones personality.
I dont think were saying theres anything wrong with love,
We just dont think that what goes on between two people
Should be shrouded with mystery.

Lovell get you like a case of anthrax
And thats something I dont want to catch
Lovell get you like a case of anthrax
And thats something I dont want to catch

Gang of four - Natural's not in it



The problem of leisure
What to do for pleasure
Ideal love a new purchase
A market of the senses
Dream of the perfect life
Economic circumstances
The body is good business
Sell out, maintain the interest
Remember Lot's wife
Renounce all sin and vice
Dream of the perfect life
This heaven gives me migraine
The problem of leisure
What to do for pleasure

Coercion of the senses
We are not so gullible
Our great expectations
A future for the good
Fornication makes you happy
No escape from society
Natural is not in it
Your relations are of power
We all have good intentions
But all with strings attached

Repackaged sex keeps your interest
Repackaged sex keeps your interest
Repackaged sex keeps your interest
Repackaged sex keeps your interest
Repackaged sex keeps your interest
Repackaged sex keeps your interest

The problem of leisure
What to do for pleasure
Ideal love a new purchase
A market of the senses
Dream of the perfect life
Economic circumstances
The body is good business
Sell outs [? out ?] maintain the interest
Remember Lot's wife
Renounce all sin and vice
Dream of the perfect life
This heaven gives me migraine
This heaven gives me migraine
This heaven gives me migraine

I listened to both hoping it would bring back a memory but it didn't. I wasn't a punk so it isn't surprising. :sp

Here in the States we pronounce migraine with a long "i" sound. Silly brits.

I keep hearing the drums from the first song going round in the back of my mind for the last few days :)
