Track Name: Feminist Nemesis Messiah
Why do you want

A new messiah, nemesis messiah

It just won't do
It really won't do
It just won't do
It really won't do
It just won't do

All in context, out of context

Why do you want

All in context, out of context

And so you can Caitlyn Moran
The human being, become an idol
You get attention, the good attention
And don't you ever lose your temper
'Cos you are fucked up, you fuck up
But never fuck up, don't fuck up
And so you can Caitlyn Moran
A human being, become the idol

Thank you for shouting
I'll check my privilege
Thank you for shouting
I'll check my privilege
Thank you for shouting
I'll check my privilege
Thank you for shouting
Shouting shouting

Thank you for shouting
Thank you for shouting
Thank you for shouting

Track Name: NHS Vulva
She's got an NHS vulva
You'll be treated like a girl now he told her
Stuck gloved finger right inside
Pleased with inspected handiwork

NHS vulva NHS cock
Ain't much but it's what we've got
You're on the waiting list for years
So take your jealousy out on peers

NHS vulva NHS cock
Ain't much but it's what we've got
An acceptable job for the lower classes
Never say this technology is past it

He's not got an NHS cock
They went out once but since stopped
Now he's done for sex by fraud
Gender invalidates consent m'lord

NHS vulva NHS cock
Ain't much but it's what we've got
Civil rights with sculpted genitalia
If you're lucky they won't fail ya

NHS vulva NHS cock
Ain't much but it's what we've got
Binary options will have to do
Behave if you want to get through

She'll settle for an NHS vulva
He'll settle for an NHS cock
Track Name: Skirts and Other Improvements
This tech's old, forgotten future
Present so mundane mundane
'Cos without tires there's no traction
No traction, inaction, action

Pope Pope Hovercraft

'Cos skirts and other improvements
increase our worth
in relation to one another
Other, other - always other

Are we the hovercraft Francis?
Progress necessarily limited
Or is it you and your Church too
Trapped in a false futurity

Track Name: Screens
In 2012 the screens appeared
Placed here for Olympic cheer
Images faster, harder, stronger
For mass consumption, mass consumption

Now months on they flicker still
Local news instead of thrill
Their shallow words they fill the air
As they beam down on empty square

It's Boris' day today, they say
It's Boris' day today

When will they go? We cannot know
Perhaps they'll go tomorrow
Perhaps in 2048 they'll be used by fascist state
or just left to rot
Ancient statues part-forgot
I feel the truth is more mundane
They will slowly melt your brain
Not through evil plot or plan
but simply through inaction
no-one's thought this through you see
but still they'll sit and show TV all day
whilst we consume in public space and never see
our neighbour's face

It's Boris' day today, they say
It's Boris' day today
Track Name: Maggie
Ain't part of the
Ding-dong parade
I won't party
At a death
As one side bellows for your head
Another celebrates your creed
It echoes on
Our Facebook feeds

But your goverment passed section 28
Played its part spreading racial hate
You helped the rich, attacked the poor
Not sad that you're dead

'Cos your government passed section 28
Played its part spreading racial hate
You helped the rich attacked the poor
Not sad that you're dead

Your legacy
It lives on
Tory class war
Austerity
Disabled people locked away
Rot on mere pittance a day
At least we got a
New Chumbawumba album

Your goverment passed section 28
Played your part spreading racial hate
You helped the rich, attacked the poor
Not sad that you're dead

Your government passed section 28
Played its part spreading racial hate
You helped the rich attacked the poor
Not sad that you're dead

not
sad
you're
dead
Track Name: Biscuits

Deprived of information they can
Only blame themselves

Is for us to buy and sell

Fight obesity, fight fight

'Cos the poor have agency the poor have agency
Call an agency privatise weight-loss
And ban this sick filth
Poverty ain't just ugly - they're too fat

Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
The poor, the poor

The poor, the poor
Fight fight the poor
The poor, the poor

Fight fight the poor

When Eric Pickles spends
£10,000 pounds on biscuits biscuits
That's 'cos he's a striver
A Tory biscuit striver

Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
Fight obesity, fight fight
The poor, the poor
fight fight the poor
The poor, the poor
Fight fight the poor
The poor, the poor
