lyrics

Now rock and roll is dead and gone,
The king of rock rolls in his grave,
He watches on as industry,
Turns pioneers into brain-dead slaves,
It seems that even the alpha males,
Will sell their souls for sweet success,
But I don't plan on following,
The never-ending trend, it's just a mess,

Well I don't think it's gonna get better any time soon,
Soon every man and his motherfucking dog,
Will have a chart-topping single mass-produced by morons like you,

If all the frauds get all the fame,
What's left for anyone but them,
Real bands pay tax and battle on,
Through famine, bankruptcy and pain,
Pay no attention to the brain-dead slaves,
Lobotomised by modern pop,
If money and looks are all you need,
Then I'm pretty fucking sure I could make that stop,

But I don't think it's gonna get better any time soon,
Soon every man and his motherfucking dog,
Will have a chart-topping single mass-produced by morons like you,

Every time I start to think,
I think about the other bands,
Well, I don't wanna sell my soul,
But we could really use a van,
Never gonna trust a suit,
But money doesn't grown on trees.
I wanna infiltrate and break the industry,
With honesty,
I wanna watch it bleed,
So fucking please,

Don't get your fingers caught in the machine,
It's a death-trap, baby, it's a suicide,
You gotta run real far, if ya know what I mean,
You gotta do it for yourself, you gotta claim your independence,
It's time, you gotta make a stand,
You gotta change all the rules and manipulate the system,
Survival of the fittest, it's dog eat dog,
And the world ain't gonna change, for you,

But I don't think it's gonna be happening any time soon,
Soon every man and his motherfucking dog,
Will have a chart-topping single mass-produced by morons like us,
