Mad As Hell


I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this -

And when the moth light, half light beast
Stumbles and tumbles from his tower of blood,
Screaming like a whacked child, crying out for
Mercy, empathy, redemption, sympathy,
I'll kick him in the groin, I'll kick him in the groin,
I'll kick him in his private parts, I'll kick him in the groin.
And all the bankers politicians, cower about
His bleeding balls, scraping with their fingernails,
Scraping at the walls,
Trying to find some part of it that
Made it all worth while, trying to
Catch a falling euro note, and stuff it in their pile.
Trying to fuck us up the ass, with their barbed wire cocks.
They'll fuck us in the hospitals, they'll fuck us on the docks.
And I say "Please master, please master -
-Don't fuck me anymore"
"I'll fuck you on the table boy -
-I'll fuck you on the floor.
I'll fuck you till your cash runs out,
I'll fuck you till your dry,
I'll fuck you till your food runs out,
I'll fuck you till you cry,
I'll fuck you till you think, that a fuck I'll fuck no more
Then I'll fuck you even harder boy, I'll fuck you out the door,
To the street!" "Sorry lad, repossession notice,
Time to lick the gutters, you're officially homeless,
Sorry it's the law, you can't argue with that,
The tigers home in India, you'll have to take the flack,
You know that what goes up, must come down
What goes up, must come down
What goes up, must come down
No! No! No! No!

I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this -

And now these bourgeois pigs, are breathing down my neck,
Their capitalist stench breath rotating in incomparable,
Washing machine feeling in my gut, nausea,
Swirling and swirling, faster and faster,
An evil vibrating anger!
Rising through my heart and throat,
Seeping through my brain.
Exploding from skull in a torrent of music
And hatred, and rhythm and words!
So now they take my right from me, I cannot speak my mind,
Any blasphemous odes, will be summarily underlined,
Then fined, then banned, then discredited,
By some ass in a suit who knows nothing of life
Or love or beauty or art,
Or the wonder in the holiness of now.
Who knows fear and money and fear and money,
And fear and money and fear and money,
And fear and money and fear and money
What are you gonna do about it?!
What are we gonna do?!
What are you gonna do about it?!
What are we gonna do?!
Take to the streets - organise!
Take to the streets - organise!
Dublin, Athens, Rome Berlin - We will fight! We will win!
Dublin, Athens, Rome Berlin - We will fight! We will win!
Brian Cowen, David Cameron, up against the wall.
Brian Cowen, David Cameron, up against the wall.


I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore.
I'm angry! Mad as hell - and I'm not gonna
Take this anymore!
