    Ive always been impressed with a girl
    who could sing for her supper
    and get breakfast as well
    thats the way I am, heaven help me

    He said, we dont like peace camapigners round here
    as he nailed another one to the wall
    and thats what gets me in trouble
    heaven help me

    Goodbye and good luck
    to all the rubbish that youve spoken

    Goodbye and good luck
    to all the promises Youve broken

    Your life has lost its dignity
    its beauty and its passion

    Youre an accident
    waiting to happen

    There you are standing at the bar
    and youre giving me grief about the ddr
    and that chip on your shoulder gets bigger
    as you get older

    One of these nights you're gonna get caught
    itll give you a pregnant pause for thought
    youre a dedicated swallower
    of fascism

    Time up and time out
    for all the liberties you've taken
    time up and time out for all the friends that
    you've foresaken
    if you choose to waste away
    like death is back in fashion
    youre an accident
    waiting to happen

    And my sins are so unoriginal
    I have all the self-loathing
    of a wolf in sheeps clothing
    in this carnival of carnivores
    Heaven help me

    So stunningly insightful, delightful, and pleasing to the eye as well as the ear and the heart. One pixel is worth ten thousand adjectives:

    Thank you for sharing. Let's have another, shall we? I look forward to the next written feast.

    I had a hard time reading the text, not necessarily too small, but that and the color don't go well with my aging vision. I read it with a magnifying glass!!
