Lyrics

Slap in the Face

(Brian Goble)
No Wishes, No Prayers, 1982

I want to see some getting back to reality
No more punk posturing, you may as well build ICBMs
No more nine to five, cause this society is in a dive
And if you play the rules, you may as well just pack it in

Can’t you see what has happened to us, left on our own
Waiting for rebellion coming down tomorrow, waiting to be shown

The music spoke our thoughts until it fell to the money men
They bought it cheap and made us all look like fools again
Another slap in the face and then the people who demanded change
Were pushed aside by faddist wimps dancing to new wave

Now once again they’ve drawn the line
They don’t need you anyway
We better wring their bloody necks this time
Oh yeah, oh yeah

I want to see some getting back to reality
No more punk posturing, you may as well build ICBMs
No more nine to five, cause this society is in a dive
And if you play the rules, you may as well just pack it in

Can’t you see what has happened to us, left on our own
Waiting for rebellion coming down tomorrow, waiting to be shown

Can’t you see what has happened to us, left on our own
Waiting for rebellion coming down tomorrow, waiting to be shown
Not by you
