  • The moon is high up on a mountain
    The lunatics have taken over the asylum
    Waiting on the rapture

    Singing, "We're here to keep your prices down
    We'll feed you to the hounds
    To the daily mail, to get up, together"

    You made a pig's ear, you made a mistake
    Paid off security and got through the gate
    You got away with it but we lie in wait, eh
    Eh, eh

    Where's the truth what's the use
    I'm hanging around lost and found
    And when you're here innocent
    Fat chance, no plan
    No regard for human life

    You'll keep time, you've no right
    You're fast to lose, you will lose
    You jumped the queue, you're back again

    President for life, love of all
    The flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth
    The fish in the sea have lost command Writer/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE
