The Lyrics

In the light of recent events I still think that the governments of the world are doing a fine job when it comes to defining freedom, entrusting it and keeping themselves out of our personal lives. Except, of course, for telling us how to live, die, read, write, speak, phone, exercise, educate, invest, marry, f*ck, vote, think and now how to draw pictures!
I saw your picture, and it was lewd
It said "Mohammad", I sighed "Oh No!"
The world's in turmoil, there's no other way to go
It had no colours, was badly drawn
Your fate is sealed though, a fatwa's bound
We're gonna miss you when the funeral's gone down
You hound!

You drew a picture
You drew a picture
And now a billion has you pictured for Hell
They're sending martyrs
To teach a lecture
And they're to gut your out- and inside as well

You've made them f*ckin' sick and f*ckin' mad
You're f*ckin' had, it's f*ckin' sad

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

You drew a picture
You drew a picture
And now a billion has you pictured for Hell
They're sending martyrs
Filled with conjecture
And they're to kill your dog and neighbours as well

You drew a f*ckin' picture f*ckin' bad,
You're f*ckin' had, it's f*ckin' sad

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

It's turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

Go've sex!
Go've drugs!
Go've wine!
Go've women!
Go've fun!
Go sing!
'Cos soon it'll be gone with the wind!

Governments are screaming, ain't no work of fiction
Governments are sketching legal jurisdiction
Governments!

And it's all turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

And it's all turning cartoonesque
I think it's turning cartoonesque, I really think so

(The chorus is to be repeated over and over, just like those flag burnings on the news, and I could write out the lines, I could, but by now you've got the picture anyway, don't you?) ;-)

Turning Kafkaesque, indeed. Couldn't agree more, Peter.
