I'm sitting in a field full of rich kids playing hippy There's a stall to save the whales and another that's a chippy And the music's up and down but all the lights are pretty trippy And the more I drink the more I think I'm getting pretty lippy Oooh, we're having such a damn good time In our autonomous collective Oooh, we're having such a damn good time If I look at it objectively My shoulder's getting tired cause it's weighed down by this chip And I feel so uninspired and I've bitten through my lip If I see another glow-stick then I think I'm going to flip And the music's going bleepy bleepy blip blip blip Oooh, we're having such a damn good time We're breaking all the rules now Oooh, we're having such a damn good time In our festival of fools Everyone's so beautiful, everyone's so arty Everyone has dropped two ton to get into this party There's guards along the fence but there's no bogroll in the shitter It's four pound fifty pence to buy a beer but I'm not bitter I'm drifting in the mud and I am lost among the litter And I'm sharing the experience with all my friends on Twitter Oooh, we're having such a damn good time In our autonomous collective Oooh, we're having such a damn good time If I look at it objectively Oooh, we're having such a damn good time We're breaking all the rules now Oooh, we're having such a damn good time In our festival of fools.

Valentine's Day in the cemetery All of the dancers are dead Been running so long don't know where I went wrong I don't even know what I just said. Valentine's Day in the mortuary All of the knives are so clean They shine in the sun as they whisper of one Who will show them the things they have seen On Valentine's Day, Valentine's Day. Just a few hours, till it's all gone away. Valentine's Day in the hospital All of the nurses are gone Been looking for you, I don't know what to do I don't even remember this song Valentine's Day in the dockyard All of the ships sail away And I'm left here alone with a flower and a phone And a rock and a handful of hay. And a handful of hay Handful of hay Just a few hours, till it's all gone away On Valentine's Day Valentine's Day. Just a few hours, till it's all gone away.

Gay definitions, enthralling inaccuracy Grey propositions of hope and felicity Fake inquisitions divorced from reality Take your positions and then call them eternity What can you do when it's all a commodity Nothing is true in the jaws of insanity Welcoming you to the bowels of conformity Shitting you through the historical lavatory Turn out the lights Open the curtains Dirty daylight just filtering in Go and do useful things Go and do useful things Go and do useful things You win. No I said it you win. Organised government, truth and democracy Binding the firmament we all call society No room for argument, that would mean anarchy With as a consequent rape and brutality What can be said when you're hamstrung semantically Here in my head with my own private dictionary Leaving unread all my meaningless poetry When I am dead it will all die too along with me
