Electro Angst Unlimited - the CCTV Generation

You've got a brother
who's only looking out for you
that's the reason he must know
of every little thing you do
Just be careful on your course
and never question why
You don't know the malevolent force
behind the camera's eye

Oh they say it's a price worth paying
so you're safe and secure
Dossiers are well worth weighing
in case you're still not sure
If good things are what you are made of
what have you to hide?
So you've nothing to be afraid of
They all said that – they all lied

You've got a brother
who's keeping you out of harm's way
that's the justification for
hearing everything you say
Just don't be so bloody blasé
on being a non-believer
You can be sure that the Stasi
is wired to your receiver

Oh they say it's a price worth paying
so you're safe and secure
Dossiers are well worth weighing
in case you're still not sure
If good things are what you are made of
what have you to hide?
So you've nothing to be afraid of
They all said that – they all lied

And yet we tolerate this farce
We're all second class now aren't we?
If I want state strength shoved up my arse
I'll go live in Zimbabwe
And shake the torturous, blood-soaked hand
of that Mr Mugabe
then sing his praises through my band
could it be worse? IT CAN'T BE

You've got a brother
whose main concern is the greater good
And the enemy within
had better make this understood
Demonstrate at your convenience
by all means cause a stir
But the price of civil disobedience
is accidents occur

Oh they say it's a price worth paying
so you're safe and secure
Dossiers are well worth weighing
in case you're still not sure
If good things are what you are made of
what have you to hide?
So you've nothing to be afraid of
They all said that – they all lied

And if you like this then it calls
to take a holiday
of wires wrapped right around your balls
at Guantanemo Bay
Where they check out your pain threshold
until they hear you say
You know those bombs they swapped for gold?
I flogged them on Ebay
