The Lyrics

We're screwed, it starts with elections
Democrats, Republicans - & hanging chads are not allowed
slave to big businesses, look at what their boss earns
petrol's what we need, moneys what we keep
bleeding off the country now it's spent
leaders vapid patter with fear from far right.
Tyres set on fire choking up the populace
a president for hire with a bankrupt mind.
Left of sense and coming in a hurry
with the Enron scandal in his bed.
Terrorist reporters baffled, trumped, slightly lost.
Look in Afghanistan! Fine, then.
Uh oh, oil flows, damn pollution, GM food, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself.
Cash makes its own needs, listen to business greed
voter with the income and the tax bill infinte, right.
You mediocre, politician, stall, fight, talk sh*te,
feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it. and he feels fine.

Six o'clock - Talked an hour. Held up by world super-powers.
Slash and burn, in turn, find new forests to burn.
Cocking up, poorly thought out, fridge dumping, oil spilling.
Every motive profit-led. Automotive market headers.
Light a bonfire, light an oilfield. Saddam, Saddam.
Watch that prat Bush rush, uh-oh, this means
no real logic here. Washington steer clear!
accountancy, accountancy, accountancy, told lies.
Offer him solutions, a seat at Johannesburg and he declines.

It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it. and he feels fine.

The other night you called them lies, good economies reside.
Profits on bottom lines, Kyoto sometime.
Osama gets set, diversions Bush needs to get.
El Nino, Water, Ozone Layer, boom!
You democratic, patriotic, what the heck!, right? Right.

It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it.
It's the end of the world and Bush knows it. and he feels fine.
(It's time for Bush to stay at home)
