lyrics

'They're a dismal miserable bunch of fanatics
Pretending to revel in the way they are
A destructive evil menace to society
Lock 'em all away where they can do no harm
There's been too much toleration
Now we're knee deep in them year by year
It may mean the end of civilisation
We'll all catch something from a glass of beer'

What have I ever done to you
You twist everything that I say and do
Half-truths and total lies
You know you're always out to get me
I don't understand and don't deserve
Your vicious whispers and twisted words
Why this hysteria -
You know you've never even met me

'We see these vile insulting animals
Every other night on our TV sets
Big ones, little ones, harridans, harpies
Catamite sluts that couldn't care less
These freaks proclaiming their failings
Corrupt anything and everything they've found
Kids get molested in their minds and bodies
It's high time we stopped pussyfooting around'

What have I ever done to you
You twist everything that I say and do
Half-truths and total lies
You know you're always out to get me
I don't understand and don't deserve
Your vicious whispers and twisted words
Witch hunt hysteria -
You know you've never even met me

'Shut 'em all away on an offshore island
Let's get rid of these repulsive rats
Put them in a pit, pour quicklime over them
Burning's too good for filth like that'

What have I ever done to you
You twist everything that I say and do
Half-truths and total lies
You know you're always out to get me
I don't understand and don't deserve
Your vicious whispers and twisted words
Why this hysteria -
You know you've never even met me

I clean my teeth and brush my hair
And who I love is my own affair
I can't believe it's true
This can't be really what I'm reading...
