The Lyrics

Our head of theatre is a scum bag. It's really getting quite annoying. As an example of his Acts of Evil, he once took an all-expenses trip to the Isle of Wight (using money from our course budget), on the basis that he was recruiting people for our course. He found two people, but they are the wrong side of some geographical budgetting line, and so to come to the college they would be classed as overseas students and required to pay course fees of £10000, rather than £1000. Mate, you knew this, you went, and then you tried to get us to do a massive job for you for free. NO. He must be stopped.
Something has changed within me
Since that day, my interview.
Thought you and this whole place were cool
I tried real hard to please you

Thought my work wasn't quite 'out there'.
Now I know; it don't interest you
I had a cheque- that's what matters
"Welcome to the School."

It's time to try
Defying Sanity
You're being paid
A massive salary
You've always let me down

There's something I can't quite understand
How this man can continue his day job

I've seen there are no limits
To the things you'll stoop to do
Two years, I thought you'd change
So many times I have stood up for you
You act completely solo
And somehow you're still running free
Well watch your back mate
Cause you've not just got at me

It's time to try
Accepting Sanity
You're being paid
A hefty salary
And They won't bring you down

(Spoken) David, come to us. Think of what fantastic designers we could be, if only you weren't such a money grabbing- tight fisted scumbag!

Our talents are unlimited
You once gave me a vision-
O seemed like a prophecy,
I know
I was truly crazy
To think you wouldn't hate me
And every other student too

And so now I
Given opportunity
Will spoil your car
Your little 'baby'
And you won't know it's me!

So if you care to find me
On days with no clouds in the sky
The car shop or your park space
Screw your car and make you want to cry
Each time you leave your driveway
In letters huge and fat
A message writ in oil

It's time to try
Accepting Sanity
Is there an end
To your depravity?
There's few Heads with your renown
But NOBODY, in all *-*-L
No devils from the Pits of Hell
Have ever tried to bring you down!
Bring you down!
Bring you down!
