Track Name: Hands Up
Hands Up! who believes in trophy shags Hands Up! for gridlock overhead Hands Up! for rotten teeth and rickets Hands Up! for an office creche Hands Up! for a fat rubbish bag Hands Up! for sleep-walking, and home movies on CCTV... There's a fear in my eyes...
The ideas, worn so thin
Passed from hand to hand
Till you could see thru them
Where have the mutants gone?
Neurotic, over-specialized
But I wish they'd persevere
Hands Up! who can make predictions Hands Up! who believes their assumptions Hands Up! for a fat rubbish bag Hands Up! for a pat ending...
Don't stand on yr dignity, you're just another animal...
The Mushroom of Efficiency
Is prodding you awake
He's a cartoon character, a hologram
And he means well
But he'll report you if you're late
And I say please turn out that [expletive deleted for purposes of this single] light!
Track Name: 180 degree Reaction

(Now there's some of that London attitude...)
