Doesn't take much to bring you down
There are plenty of people standing round
Wait till you slacken off just a bit
Then they fill you up with passive bullshit
It's too good. It can't last. What a shame
Watch out for the quiet ones at the back
All they want is the smallest crack
Everythings happening down the front
Innocent bystander you're the biggest runt
Fuck the punks, punks are fucked
It's too loud, awful row
They can't play, they'll give up
In the end, what a shame
Oh what a shame (x 2)
It's still the same
That's what you think
Watch out for the quiet ones at the back
All they want is the smallest crack
Everythings happening down the front
Innocent bystander you're the biggest runt
We all know, it's so bad, but we say so
WHAT A SHAME
