Perturbator - The New Black lyrics

I don't have to tell you things are bad
Everybody knows things are bad
It's a depression
Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job
The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust
Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter
Punks are running wild in the street
And nobody anywhere seems to know what to do
And there's no end to it

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat
And we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us
That today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes
As if that's the way it's supposed to be
We know things are bad - worse than bad
They're crazy
It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore
We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller
And all we say is please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms
Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials
And I won't say anything
Just leave us alone
Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone

I want you to get mad
I don't want you to protest
I don't want you to riot
I don't want you to write to your congressman because
I wouldn't know what to tell you to write
I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation
And the Russians and the crime in the street
All I know is that first you've got to get mad

You've got to say
I'm a human being, goddamn it
My life has value
