(Tricky raps in the background throughout
Hey you, so what cha gonna do
Palpable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man)

How things are together we'll destroy
And then we can destroy what we are
Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

How things are together we'll destroy
And then we can destroy what we are
Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

Feed me when I'm hungry
Drink me till I'm dry
The dream of yesterday becomes another lie
You feed me lies--distortion--the english disaster
No ones free from love for one master (one lord for one master)

We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority
We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

Extract from crystal though nothing is clear
I despise you, damn you, dream you
I love you
But still nothings clear
I think of when I found you
Keep on singin while I'm drowning
Down into that two-tone vision
I've been raised (maze) in this place
And now concrete is my religion

See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

The only lesson you teach us ?
They ask my origin,
The only lesson you teach us ?
They ask my origin, it's a moral sin.
