The Lyrics

Surf the web in a lost and lonely part of town
Held in time in a world of lawyers that shut sites down
Sat at home here, I just can't make it all alone
I really should download a few
download a few, a tune or two, tune or two...

MP3!
When you just log on, download any song
Near anarchy
Record labels cry, and you don't know why
It's hard to care
With so much to choose from, I'm going nowhere!

MP3!
You're in full control of pop, rock, and soul
It's fun, you see
Got loads of files, some you just can't buy
I love this software!
With a long Winamp playlist I'm going nowhere!

Night and day I download more files, you see
Music love with a yearning that won't let me be
Down I go and I just can't take it all alone
I really should download a few
download a few, a tune or two, tune or two...

Tragedy!
Now that Napster's gone and you can't log on
It's tragedy
When the download dies and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With nowhere to leech from You're going nowhere

Tragedy!
Now the files have gone and you can't get on
It's tragedy
And when Morpheus dies and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With Winamp sat idle you're in a state of despair

Tragedy!
You had all almost all rock and pop and soul
It's tragedy
When your hard disk dies and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
with no decent backups You're going nowhere, oh!

Tragedy!
With the tunes all gone, now you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the modem cries as the hardware fries
It's hard to bear
With nothing to listen to you're going nowhere

Tragedy
Now you've lost control, can't download you're soul
It's tragedy
Try to get a grip... but your discs won't rip...
It's hard to bear
cos the RIAA sez you're going nowhere!

IRC!
With the Napster-clones gone, it's just like Day 1
back on IRC!
When the server replies and you've found some files
It's hard to bear
With plenty to download you're going nowhere, oh!

Tragedy
They want pay-per-play and DMCA
It's tragedy
Manufactured bands, screaming kiddie fans
It's hard to bear
All that shit on the radio, it's going nowhere, oh!

Tragedy
Legal battles fought, and bad laws bought
It's tragedy
When free speech dies and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
When money controls everything, everywhere, oh

Tragedy
