The Monster Lyrics

Now there's no one left to vote for

And there's very rarely been

No more voices of the people

G (F#) Em
Who are not of the machine

And the giant public monster
Gathering summer's silent scream
Swearing blind he's not been seen
Hiding bones that everyone sees


And everybody knows

That everybody goes

G (F#) Em D
In - Sa - ne

The revolution's always over
The apocalypse is now
All hands are on the keyboard
Hardly any on the plough

The new government's the old one
Same old handbags at the helm
Lapsing back into religion
Letting voices overwhelm


It got crazy on the frontline
Manning barricades to wait
On the motherboards of freedom
For the hordes of solid state

Long before the menu
Was having problems with the date
And the mice became the men
Far too late


Now my church is in the dungeon
Down the fourteenth corridor
Virtual guards surround me
With electronic walls

We're at the level of playstation
Where the rich become the poor
On their bended knees they're praying
For more, so much more . .


No there's no one left to vote for
Only fools to vote against
The refugees have all surrended
The perimeter's been fenced

Six billion dreamers are all banged up
By the screment of dough
And the new religion
of the W.T.O


I have given up the memory
Of my years of dreaming on
To be as silent as I'm angry
About this trip through babylon

I feel the building of the final
Psyche of the snake
Make a killig every lunchtime
Sleep it off until I wake
