The Wildhearts - Institutional Submission Lyrics


Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before
Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before
Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before
Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before

People died for the rights you ignore
Nevermore, nevermore
Trying to survive this side of the law
Nevermore, nevermore

The electric smell of unrest in the air
No one was prepared
No matter how stuffed the belly or the wallet
Nobody is spared

Not picked or elected, this signals the end
Faux bourgeois sucked in by the headline
Descend

Zero to one, now the fear has gone
What the future holds is of use to no one
With this carrying on there’ll be no use crying
No use waiting for anything under the sun
To fix the problem
To fix this problem omit the problem

Your overdraft shows you’re the lowest of low
You’re not a capitalist, just a cunt by association

Your Mam and Dad had to sell the semi detached
Because they needed the cash
So they could pay for his operations
A pacemaker and a hip replacement

You all voted to be one of the bourgeoisie
There’s no I in tyrant or U in crook
But there’s a U in cunt, and a tit in stitched up
And a rat in desperation is just a cunt by association

On the bottom shelf, by the kids magazines
We are force fed filth from infancy
A right wing plan creates your view
Of a world that doesn’t have room for you

Choices you don’t need to make
Sides that you don’t need to take
Enemies that are not real
Fear that no one needs to feel

Left or right, black or white
It’s us or them, it’s wrong or right
Left or right, black or white
It’s us or them, it’s wrong or right

Caught in the death grip of power and paranoia
Caught in the death grip of power and paranoia

Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before
Institutionalised submission, we’ve seen it before, we’ve been here before
