(800) HUMAN

Album: Songs For Imaginative People (2013)
  • Are you sick of not existing?
    Does your halo just not flatter your face?
    Feel brand new in just three easy payments
    Try it free
    What it’s like to be

    But wait there’s more!
    The sky is not the limit
    The body you have always wanted
    Let us put you in it
    Bad karma? No karma? You too can get a life
    And it’s all for the low, low price of

    What it’s like to be human
    What it’s like to be alive

    No returns and no exchanges
    And of course at first you won’t know what your fucking name is
    Void where prohibited or if your lover leaves
    Putrefaction guaranteed
    Just call the number on your screen, (800)


    On earth as it is in heaven
    Condemned to be free
    And yes, even angels fall for legalese
    So lead us not into late night TV
    But deliver us, no CODs,


    ’Cause all anybody knows
    Is how the jingle goes Writer/s: JOHN LYDON, SCOTT FIRTH, LU EDMONDS, BRUCE NEAL SMITH
