bumhooler lyrics – crass

if they drop a bomb on us, we f*cking deserve it,
we know we got it coming, we f*cking deserve it,
they got a comfy set up, they’ll try and preserve it.
we had the early warning, we can sit and observe it.

sliding down guidelines, cradle to the grave,
all the willing saviours see that we behave.
everybody knows they’re there, see them all around.
lots of little people who’ll put you in the ground.
well, take a burning issue and stuff it up your *rs*.
they’ve f*cked you with a furrowed brow, sh*tting broken gl*ss,
marching down the ‘dilly to demonstrate again,
while the men who plan the holocaust are p*ssed out of their brain.
brain of pasty people, who’ll bomb it all to f*ck,
you can be a victim or they’ll let you try your luck,
p*ss it on to others, ship it down the line,
leave the world in ruins, you know we’ve got the time.

if they drop a bomb on us, we f*cking deserve it,
we know we got it coming, we f*cking deserve it,
they got a comfy set up, they’ll try and preserve it.
we had the early warning, we can sit and observe it.

cop-outs look for motives… freudian *n*lyst,
come on, mr. horror, what do you make of this?
won’t find many people without their rationale,
any handy concept to hang upon the wall,
soldier’s got his enemy, police have got the state,
family have home sweet home, ss got red tape.
mp’s got his duty, priest has got his sin,
everybody finds a hole, to drop somebody in.
seeking out wisdom in the ironies of life,
weighing up subtleties, fiddling with the ties,
no-one else decides for you, whether to or not,
you make an easy target if you’re running on the spot.

if they drop a bomb on us, we f*cking deserve it,
we know we got it coming, we f*cking deserve it,
they got a comfy set up, they’ll try and preserve it.
we had the early warning, we can sit and observe it.

someone’s been training, flexing their muscles,
getting in practice, irrelevant tussles,
given a march, or a quiet sunday demo,
they wait till the state put the finger on you.
peeping through a frown, your humanity in rags,
playing the loser till the sense of purpose sags,
they can deal with heroes, watch the bleeders run,
it’s only your head keeps the target from the gun.

no-one else decides for you, whether to or not
you make an easy target if you’re running on the spot …
