Excoriating madrigal from the Corporate Raiders. Written by Mick Daley.


Well the dam burst long ago
but rivers always find a new way to flow
and gravity's spinnin'
only half of the people fightin' are winnin'

and some just wanna know the football scores
others wanna start up a gender war
we're preoccupied with our fatal flaws
and tryin' to feed all them open jaws
a lotta people performin' but nobody's clappin'
everybody's waitin' for somethin' to happen

Like nostalgia for somethin' when ya don't know what it is
like hangin' out for the reformation of Buck's Fizz

Well ya get hellbent on avoidin' the disease
with a thousand milligrams of vitamin C
someone gonna get it next and it might be me

and all this geography needs remappin'
important people keepin' their jaws flappin'
every one of these things is overlappin'
and everybody's waitin' for somethin' to happen

So history keeps on scratchin' the record of the suffragettes
takes years to get anywhere only five minutes to forget

with the protagonists all goin' ballistic
antagonists say they just masochistic
gettin' nowhere at the end of the day
with the Apocalypse only a stones throw away
streets are full of death and decay
people you better hope and pray not to get caught nappin'
cos all o' this geography needs remappin' etc ...
