Who Sang The Great and the Good? Napalm Death

Napalm Death  cover art
Release information
length: 4:11
guest: Jello Biafra
Stinking to the bowels of high heaven
Crepeing to the giants of status
Guarding protection of interests - not you!

Not you or anything that might be misconstrued (as help)

Marching through the ashes of conquests
Slapping the backs of the empire men
Selling our consent in the process - that's you!

That is you and everything you'd be reduced to do.

A pledge is a pledge
But only 'til it doesn't suit to your friends
The art of double-talk
Adamant on what you really meant.

A pledge is a pledge is a pledge is a pledge

For lesser, the poorer
Pluck out their eyes - they offend
'Dumb' animals can't precede the lucre in barbaric tests.

Big noise says jump now,
The chasm is never too high or wide.
The corporate slow-killer.
Punished with a lenient smile.

A pledge is a pledge is a pledge is a pledge

The arrogance, the hand in hands of despotic
freaks that defend
An oversight where humans rights fall at the fence
of 'good trade'

Yes man? Always.

Drop the high and mighty facade.
Do the decent thing.
Consider mouthing one word of truth.
Blow open the grand scheme.

Yes man? Always. Yes man? Always. Yes man? Always.

Drop the high and mighty facade.
Do the decent thing.
Consider mouthing one word of truth.
Blow open the grand scheme.

A pledge is a pledge is a pledge is a pledge
The man in the bubble smiles - berates the condemned.
Back to his crusade, fights off more cries of dissent.
