ICONS OF FILTH _ Enough Is Enough
Authority clamps down on us all like a chainsaw
Some get severed and some get cut
Who really gives a shit if it’s 1984?
Thinks got too bad years ago and getting bad some more
You can’t fool me. Get stuffed. Enough is enough
Are you too thick to understand
That things have gotten way out of hand?
At this rate it won’t be too long
Governments cons go on and on and on
It’s getting so bad now, can’t hardly move
Forget all your troubles and get in the groove
Dance the night away, who cares anyway
This sort of pathetic negativity goes on and on and on
How intense have things got to get
Before you can see that all is set?
Will you wait til Britain’s great dirty cruise missiles have already traveled many miles?
Things are gonna get tough, enough is enough
Boys now decide what happens over here
Britain is now the 53rd American state
A nuclear powered launch pad, prefixed “Great”
A country run by ageing egoistic politician fucks
Smashing disagreeing mouths with military rifle butts
Numbing liberated brains with policeman’s truncheons
“Shut your fucking face…the state must function”
So much for Thatcher’s Victorian values
Vicious brutality, oppress and abuse
They piss and shit on anything they don’t like
You can say that I’m wrong but I know that I’m right
The whole world over is in such a fucking mess
Money is the main thing so sod all the rest
Big business multinationals are screwing the world
Draining every penny and last drops of blood out of peoples in poor nations
The Coca Cola blood acting in accordance with the latest stocks and shares
Businessmen, boss men, seeking. Just don’t care
They’ve detached themselves from the reality we all have to bear
All they’ve ever done is conned us to the hilt
Made us slave in their factories, the factories we have built
And the products that we’ve grafted so hard to make
We have to buy back to make great the state
Sometimes I wonder how they continually get away with it
Maybe we’re really content to wallow in the shit
Fuck all consequence, the state must still function
Maybe we deserve this shit and maybe we don’t
Maybe the world will blow and maybe it won’t
But one thing I do know is that enough is enough
But how many of our number are prepared to stand up?
Can we offer an alternative to killing the earth?
We can only but try , we can’t do no worse
Enough is enough.
Yeah, enough is enough
Now how many of our number are prepared to stand up?
