big brother lyrics – hazel o’connor

they’ll tear out your heart, throw it knee-deep in a cart
‘cos that’s what they do with the sc*m like me and you
and you feel as if you died, whilst you’re standing on the line
and you wonder all the time why can’t you cry?
but the people in control don’t care for you
they’re just a robot with a job to do
and when your use is exhausted, they’ll be rid of you
as soon as look at you, go to the back of the queue!

b-b-big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) *rs*

his eyes are dull, they stole his soul
they left him to rot in some stinking council hole
where they keep him doped on beer and hopes
of television dreams he’s living on the screens
he knows something that he used to believe in
that was: every human being should have his freedom
but while his dungeon had a way to show him
he should be more useful, as they broke into his skull

b-b-big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) *rs*

big brother, beware, ‘cos some of us do care
and the worm (and the worm, and the worm, and the worm)
may turn (may turn, may turn, may turn)
and the violence (and the violence, and the violence, and the violence)
in my head (in my head, in my head, in my head) is real
bam-bam, you’re dead!

b-b-big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) *rs*

b-b-big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
big brother’s got no heart
when i get my chance
i’m gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) *rs*

*rs*!
