What's the point of being rich, if you can't think what to do with it? Cos you're so bleeding thick. Oh we weren't supposed to be, we learnt too much at school now we can't help but see, that the future that you've got mapped out is nothing much to shout about. We're making a move, we're making it now, we're coming out of the side-lines. Just put your hands up - it's a raid yeah. We want your homes, we want your lives, we want the things you won't allow us. We won't use guns, we won't use bombs, we'll use the one thing we've got more of - that's our minds Brothers, sisters, can't you see? The future's owned by you and me.

Pencil SkirtWhen you raise your pencil skirt, like a veil before my eyes, like the look upon his face as he's zipping up his flies. Oh I know that you're engaged to him. Oh but I know that you want something to play with baby. I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning me on. You can tell me some lies, about the good times that you've had, but I've kissed your more than twice, and now I'm working on your Dad. Oh baby. I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning me on. If you look under the bed, then I can see my house from here, so just lie against the wall, and watch my conscience disappear now baby I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning me on. I only come here cause I know it makes you sad. I only do it cause I know you know it's bad. Oh yes I know, that it's ugly and it shouldn't be like that. Oh but oh it's turning me on.
Common PeopleShe came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge, she studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College, that's where I, caught her eye. She told me that her Dad was loaded, I said "In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola." She said "Fine." and in thirty seconds time she said, "I want to live like common people, I want to do whatever common people do, I want to sleep with common people, I want to sleep with common people, like you." Well what else could I do - I said "I'll see what I can do." I took her to a supermarket, I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere, so it started there. I said pretend you've got no money, she just laughed and said, "Oh you're so funny." I said "yeah? Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here. Are you sure you want to live like common people, you want to see whatever common people see, you want to sleep with common people, you want to sleep with common people, like me." But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my hand. Rent a flat above a shop, cut your hair and get a job. Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend you never went to school. But still you'll never get it right, cos when you're laid in bed at night, watching roaches climb the wall, if you call your Dad he could stop it all. You'll never live like common people, you'll never do what common people do, you'll never fail like common people, you'll never watch your life slide out of view, and dance and drink and screw, because there's nothing else to do. Sing along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you through, laugh along with the common people, laugh along even though they're laughing at you, and the stupid things that you do. Because you think that poor is cool. I want to live with common people, I want to live with common people etc...
I spyI spy a boy, I spy a girl. I spy the worst place in the world, in the whole wide world. Oh you didn't do bad, you made it out, I'm still stuck here oh but I'll get out. Oh yeah I'll get out. Can't you see the giant that walks around you seeing through your petty lives? Do you think I do these things for real? I do these things just so I survive. And you know I will survive. It may look to the untrained eye, I'm sitting on my arse all day. I'm biding time until I take you all on. My Lords and Ladies, I will prevail, I cannot fail. Cos I spy. Oh I've got your numbers, taken notes, I know the ways your minds work; I've studied. And your minds are just the same as mine except that you are clever swines, you never let mask slip, you never admit to it, you're never hurried. Oh no no no. And every night I hone my plan how I will get my satisfaction, how I will blow your paradise away away, away. Cos I spy. And it's just like in the old days - I used to compose my own critical notices in my head. "The crowd gasp at Cocker's masterful control of the bicycle, skilfully avoiding the dog turd next to the corner shop." Imagining a blue plaque above the place I first ever touched a girl's chest, but hold on, you've got to wait for the best. You see you should take me seriously. Very seriously indeed. Cause I've been sleeping with your wife for the past sixteen weeks, smoking your cigarettes, drinking your brandy, messing up the bed that you chose together. And in all that time I just wanted you to come home unexpectedly one afternoon, and catch us at it in the front room. You see I spy for a living, and I specialise in revenge, on taking the things I know will cause you pain. I can't help it, I was dragged up. My favourite parks are car parks, grass is something you smoke, birds are something you shag. Take your "Year in Provence" and shove it up your arse. Your Ladbroke Grove looks turn me on, yeah. With roach burns in designer dresses, skin stretched tight over high cheek-bones, and thousands of tiny dryness lines beating a path to the corners of your eyes. And every night I hatch my plan, it's not a case of woman v man. It's more a case of haves against haven'ts. And I just happen to have got what you need, just exactly what you need yeah. La la la la la la la la la la, in the midnight hour. La la la la la la la la la la, I will come to you, I will come to you, I will take you from this sickness, dinner parties and champagne, I'll hold your body and make it sing again. Come on - sing again, let's sing again, oh yeah, Cos I spy, yes, I spy. I spy a boy, and I spy a girl. I spy the chance, to change the world, to change your world.
Disco 2000Well we were born within one hour of each other. Our mothers said we could be sister and brother. Your name is Deborah, Deborah. It never suited ya. Oh they thought that when we grew up, we'd get married, and never split up. We never did it, although often I thought of it. Oh Deborah, do you recall? Your house was very small, with wood chip on the wall. When I came around to call, you didn't notice me at all. I said let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown. Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road. I never knew that you'd get married. I would be living down here on my own on that damp and lonely Thursday years ago. You were the first girl at school to get breasts. Martyn said that yours were the best. The boys all loved you but I was a mess. I had to watch them trying to get you undressed. We were friends but that was as far as it went. I used to walk you home sometimes but it meant, oh it meant nothing to you, cos you were so popular. Deborah do you recall? Your house was very small, with woodchip on the wall. When I came around to call, you didn't notice me at all. I said let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown. Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road. I never knew that you'd get married. I would be living down here on my own on that damp and lonely Thursday years ago. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Ah do you recall? Your house was very small, with wood chip on the wall. When I came around to call, you didn't notice me at all. I said let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown. Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road. I never knew that you'd get married. I would be living down here on my own, on that damp and lonely Thursday years ago. Oh what are you doing Sunday baby. Would you like to come and meet me maybe? You can even bring your baby. Ohhh ooh ooh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. What are you doing Sunday baby. Would you like to come and meet me maby? You can even bring your baby. Ooh ooh oh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Oh.
Live Bed ShowShe doesn't have to go to work, but she doesn't want to stay in bed, cos it's changed from something comfortable, to something else instead. This bed has seen it all, from the first time to the last, the silences of now, and the good times of the past. And it only cost ten pounds, from a shop just down the road, but that was seven years ago, and things were very different then. It didn't get much rest at first, the headboard banging in the night. The neighbours didn't dare complain, oh everything was going right. Now there's no need to complain, cos it never makes a sound. Something beautiful left town, and she doesn't even know its name. Now every night she plays the sad game ooh ah ah, called pretending nothing's going wrong oh, oh but she knows, if this show was televised, no one would watch it, not tonight but sven years ago. La la la la la la la Now there's no need to complain, cos it never makes a sound, something beautiful left town, and she never even knew its name. She doesn't have to go to work, but she doesn't want to stay in bed, cos it's changed from something comfortable, to something else instead.
Something ChangedI wrote the song two hours before we met. I didn't know your name or what you looked like yet. Oh I could have stayed at home and gone to bed. I could have gone to see a film instead. You might have changed your mind and seen your friends. Life could have been very different but then, something changed. Do you believe that there's someone up above? Does he have a timetable directing acts of love? Why did I write this song on that one day? Why did you touch my hand and softly say. Stop asking questions that don't matter anyway. Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today. Something changed. When we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing, that in a matter of hours we'd change the way we were going. Where would I be now if we'd never met? Would I be singing this song to someone else instead? I dunno but like you said something changed.
Sorted For E's & WizzOh is this the way they say the future's meant to feel? Or just 20,000 people standing in a field. And I don't quite understand just what this feeling is. But that's okay cos we're all sorted out for E's and wizz. And tell me when the spaceship lands cos all this has just got to mean something. In the middle of the night, it feels alright, but then tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. Oh yeah the pirate radio told us what was going down. Got the tickets from some fucked up bloke in Camden Town. Oh and no-one seems to know exactly where it is. But that's okay cos we're all sorted out for E's and wizz. At 4 o'clock the normal world seems very, very, very far away. Alright. In the middle of the night, it feels alright, but then tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. Just keep on moving... Everybody asks your name, they say we're all the same and it's "nice one," "geezer" but that's as far as the conversation went. I lost my friends, I dance alone, it's six o'clock, I wanna go home. But it's "no way," "not today," makes you wonder what it meant. And this hollow feeling grows and grows and grows and grows, and you want to phone your mother and say, "Mother, I can never come home again, cos I seem to have left an important part of my brain somewhere, somewhere in a field in Hampshire." Alright. In the middle of the night, it feels alright, but then tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. What if you never come down?
F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E.The room is cold, and has been like this for several months. If I close my eyes, I can visualise everything in it, right down, right down to the broken handle on the third drawer down of the dressing table. And the world outside this room, has also assumed a familiar shape, the same events shuffeled in a slightly different order each day. Just like a modern shopping centre. And it's so cold - yeah it's so cold. It's so cold yeah, it's so cold. What is this feeling called love. Why me, why you, why here, why now. It doesn't make no sense no. It's not convenient no. It doesn't fit my plans no. It's something I don't understand oh. F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A. double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. Oh what is this thing that is happening to me. And as I'm standing across this room, I feel as if my whole life has been leading to this one moment. And as I touch your shoulder tonight, this room has become the centre of the entire universe. So what do I do? I've got a slightly sick feeling in my stomach, like I'm standing on top of a very high building, oh yeah. All the stuff they tell you about in the movies, but this isn't chocolate boxes and roses. It's dirtier than that, like some small animal that only comes out at night. And I see flashes of the shape of your breasts, and the curve of your belly, and I may have to sit down and catch my breath. Oh. What is this feeling called love. Why me, why you, why here. And why now. It doesn't make no sense no. It's not convenient no. It doesn't fit my plans, but I got that taste in my mouth again oh. F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A. double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. What is this thing that is happening to me F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A.double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. What is this thing that is happening to me. Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.
UnderwearWhy don't you shut the door, and close the curtains, cos you're not going anywhere. He's coming up the stairs, and in a moment he'll want to see your underwear. You couldn't stop it now. There's no way to get out. He's standing far too near. How the hell did you get here. Semi-naked in somebody else's room. I'd give my whole life to see it. Just you, stood there, only in your underwear. If fashion is your trade, then when you're naked, I guess you must be unemployed yeah. Cos once it's underway, there's no escaping, the fact that you're a girl and he's a boy. You couldn't stop it now. There's no way to get out. He's standing far too near. How the hell did you get here. Semi-naked in somebody else's room. I'd give my whole life to see it. Just you, stood there, only in your underwear. If you close your eyes and just remember, that this is what you wanted last night. So why is it so hard for you to touch him. For you to go and give yourself to him? I couldn't stop it now. There's no way to get out. He's standing far too near. How the hell did you get here, semi-naked in somebody else's room. I'd give my whole life to see it.

Mmm when you can go out late from Monday, till Saturday turns into Sunday, and now you're back here at Monday, so we can do it all over again.

Now, now that you're free, what are you going to be? And who are you going to see? And where, where will you go? And how will you know, You didn't get it all wrong?

Bar ItaliaNow if you can stand, I would like to take you by the hand, yeah, and go for a walk, past people as they go to work. Oh, let's get out of this place, before they tell us that we've just died. Move, move quick, you've gotta move. Come on it's through, come on it's time. Oh look at you, you, you're looking so confused, just what did you lose? If you can make an order could you get me one? Two sugars would be great, cos I'm fading fast, and it's nearly dawn.

Let's go.do do do doThis Is Hardcore
The FearThis is our "Music from A Bachelors Den" - the sound of loneliness turned up to ten. A horror soundtrack from a stagnant water-bed And it sounds just like this. This is the sound of someone losing the plot - making out that they're okay when they're not. You're gonna like it, but not a lot and the chorus goes like this: Oh baby, here comes the fear again. The end is near again. A monkey's built a house on your back. You can't get anyone to come in the sack and here comes another panic attack Oh here we go again. So now you know the words to our song, pretty soon you'll all be singing along. When you're sad, when you're lonely and it all turns out wrong. When you've got the fear. And hen you're no longer searching for beauty or love - just some kind of life with the edges taken off. When you can't even define what it is that you're frightened of this song will be here. Oh baby, here comes the fear gain. The end is near again. If you ever get that chimp off your back. If you ever find the thing that you lack but you know you're only having a laugh and here we go again. Until the end.
DishesI am not Jesus though I have the same initials - I am the man who stays home and does the dishes. And how was your day? Is that woman still trying to do your head in? A man told me to beware of 33. He said, "It was not an easy time for me" but I'll get trhough even though I've got no miracles to show you. I'd like to make this water wine but it's impossible. I've got to get these dishes dry. I'll read a story if it helps you sleep at night. I've got some matches if you ever need a light. Oh I am just a man but i'm doing what I can to help you. I'd like to make this water wine but it's impossible. I've got to get these dishes dry. And I'm not worried that I will never touch the stars cos stars belong up in heaven and the earth is where we are. Oh yeah. And aren't you happy just to be alive? Anything's possible. You've got no Cross to bear tonight. No not tonight. No not tonight. I am not Jesus though I have the same initials.
Party HardI used to try very hard to make friends with everyone on the planet. I've seen you havin' it, havin' it yeah but now you've just had it. Entertainment can sometimes be hard when the thing that you love is the same thing that's holding you down. This man is dangerous, he just shed his load on your best party frock. Before you enter the palace of wisdom you have to decide: are you ready to rock? Oh can you party with me? Can you show me a good time? Do you even know what one looks like? And I don't need to hear your stories again - just get on the floor and show me what you're made of. Just what exactly are you made of? Baby, you're driving me crazy. Baby, you're driving me crazy. I was having a whale of a time until your uncle Psychosis arrived. Why do we have to half kill ourselves just to prove we're alive? I'm here whenever you need me and whenever you need me I won't be here. And have you ever stopped to ask yourself? if you didn't come to party, then why did you come here? Baby, you're driving me crazy. Baby, you're driving me crazy. And do you really want to know just how come you turned out so dumb? When the party's over will you come home with me? Now the party's over will you come home to me. Will you come home to me?
Help The AgedHelp the aged, one time they were just like you, drinking, smoking cigs and sniffing glue. Help the aged, don't just put them in a home, can't have much fun when they're all on their own. Give a hand, if you can, try and help them to unwind. Give them hope and give them comfort cos they're running out of time. In the meantime we try. Try to forget that nothing lasts forever. No big deal so give us all a feel. Funny how it all falls away. When did you first realise? It's time you took an older lover baby. Teach you stuff although he's looking rough. Funny how it all falls away. Help the aged cos one day you'll be older too - you might need someone who can pull you through and if you look very hard behind those lines upon their face you may see where you are headed and it's such a lonely place. In the meantime we try. Try to forget that nothing lasts forever. No big deal so give us all a feel. Funny how it all falls away. When did you first realise? It's time you took an older lover baby. Teach you stuff although he's looking rough. Funny how it all falls away. You can dye your hair but it's the one thing you can't change. Can't run away from yourself. In the meantime we try. Try to forget that nothing lasts forever. No big deal so give us all a feel. Funny how it all falls away. When did you first realise? It's time you took an older lover baby. Teach you stuff although he's looking rough. Funny how it all falls away. Funny how it all falls away. So help the aged.

Cos this is Hardcore.
TV MovieWithout you my life has become a hangover without end. A movie made for TV: bad dialogue, bad acting, no interest. Too long with no story and no sex. Is it a kind of weakness to miss someone so much? To wish the day would go away? Like you did yesterday. Just like you did yesterday. And I can't think of a way to get through this pain. To be happy again to make it all alright and I know it must be bad cos sitting here right now, all I know is I can't even think, I can't even think of anything clever to say. So I say: why pretend any longer? Cos I need you here with me. It's obvious that I miss you so much so please say you're gnna stay. So please say you're gonna stay. So please say you're gonna stay. The night is getting darker now and there's nothing on TV but I'll sit tight til morning light. Yeah, I'll wait until the day. Until the day that you say you're gonna stay.

Now as the day slips away and we slide into night. I don't know. Oh no no no. No I don't know know. No no no. No I don't know. I open my eyes and you're there, even better in the flesh it would seem. I'm so ready and willing and able it's untrue, to act out this love scene and make my dreams come true. And how many others have touched themselves whilst looking at pictures of you? How many others could handle it if all their dreams came true? I don't expect you to answer straight away, maybe you're just having an off day but I need to believe in you. Yes I do. Yes I do. Oh I want you here in my heart. Here in my head. Live all your dreams for tonight here in your bed. I don

Her father's living with some girl who's a year younger than her. She's living in the country now yeah. Oh, she's trying to get better. Her beauty was her only crime. Yeah, I remember Sylvia. So keep believing and do what you do, I can't help you but I know things are gonna get better. And please stop asking what it's got to do with you. Oh, keep believing cos you know that you deserve better. Who's this man you're talking to? Can't you see what he wants to do? He thinks if he stands near enough then he will look as good as you. Oh, he don't care about your problems. He just wants to show his friends. I guess I'm just the same as him - I just didn't know it then. I never understood you really and I know it's too late now. You didn't ask to be that way. oh, I'm sorry Sylvia. So keep believing and do what you do, I can't help you but I know things are gonna get better.

Glory DaysCome and play the tunes of glory - raise your voice in celebration of the days that we have wasted in the cafe in the station. And learn the meaning of existence in fortnightly instalments. Come share this golden age with me in my single room apartment. And if it all amounts to nothing - it doesn't matter, these are still our glory days. Oh my face is unappealing and my thoughts are unoriginal. I did experiments with substances but all it did was make me ill and I used to do the I Ching but then I had to feed the meter. Now I can't see into the future but at least I can use the heater. Oh it doesn't get much better than this cos this is how we live our glory days. Oh and I could be a genius if I just put my mind to it and I, I could do anything if only I could get round to it. Oh we were brought up on the Space-Race, now they expect you to clean toilets. When you've seen how big the world is, how can you make do with this? If you want me I'll be sleeping in - sleeping in throughout these glory days. These glory days can take their toll, so catch me now before I turn to gold. Yeah we'd love to hear your story just as long as it tells us where we are - that where we are is where we're meant to be. Oh come on make it up yourself - you don't need anybody else. And I promise I won't sell these days to anybody else in the world but you. No-one but you.
The Day After The RevolutionThe dust has settled, replaces the bulbs in all the lights. I guess I'll get no sleep tonight. A revolution happened. Oh, sorry, you haven't heard? We are the children of the new world. If you're quiet you can watch if you like. They say the future's beginning tonight. Whole empires will crumble. Civilisations will fall. Lie on the bed, hear the sound of it all. No anger, no guilt and no sorrow; it sounds unlikely, I know, but tomorrow you will wake up to find that your whole life has changed. Although nothing looks different a revolution took place. I love the way you do it. I love the way you put them on. You know the answers but you get it wrong. (Just to confuse things). Why did it seem so difficult to realise a simple truth? The revolution begins and ends with you. Now all the breakdowns and nightmares look small. Now we decided not to die after all. Because the meek shall inherit absolutely nothing at all. If you stopped being so feeble you could have so much more. The answer was here all the time, you see. Just how I missed it is a mystery to me. I have waited and waited for this day to arrive. The revolution was televised. Now it's over, bye bye. It's over, bye bye. Yeah, we made it. Just by the skin of our teeth. Perfection is over (The Rave is over) Sheffield is over. The Fear is over. Guilt is over (Please leave the building quietly) Bergerac is over. The hangover is over Men are over Women are over. Cholesterol is over. Tapers are over. Irony is over. Bye bye. Bye bye.
Like A FriendDon't bother saying you're sorry. Why don't you come in? Smoke all my cigarettes - againe. Every time I get no further. How long has it been? Come on in now, Wipe your feet on my dreams. You take up my time, Like some cheap magazine, When I could have been learning something. Oh well, you know what I mean. I've done this before. And I will do it again. Come on and kill me baby, while you smile like a friend. And I'll come running, Just to do it again. You are the last drink I never should drunk. You are the body hidden in the trunk. You are the habit I can't seem to kick. You are my secrets on the front page every week. You are the car I never should have bought. You are the train I never should have caught. You are the cut that makes me hide my face. You are the party that makes me feel my age. Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid. Like a plane I've been told I never should board. Like a film that's so bad but I've gotta stay til the end. Let me tell you now, It's lucky for you that we're friends.
