The Lyrics

Go buy a cigarette;
You've got a bill to set alight.
How quickly they forget:
You never had the will to fight.
They gave you everything; you're still not satisfied,

And you don't bring us anything but brown.
No, you don't bring us anything but brown.
You haven't got anything but brown;
You're going down.

You and your agency--
You bail out morons every day.
It's pure insanity;
They thieve and thieve, but they can't pay.
You say that you'll save us all, and "Bull!" is what we say;

'Cause you don't bring us anything but brown.
No, you can't bring us anything but brown.
All our enemies have gone to town.

Well maybe you can't make up your mind;
Maybe you're caught in an awful bind;
Or maybe you're whistling blind...

You with your stilted words,
And the lies of dreamy fools;
You with your failed beliefs
That taint most everything you do.
You look so much sleazier--once more--for being you.

Now you don't bring us anything but brown.
'Cause you can't bring us anything but brown.
Now everything is crashing to the ground.
Are you still around...?
Are you still around...?

Now, no more playing truth or dare!
No more bull-glow warming scare!
Why don't you just DO SEX TO YOURSELF!?

I know some wish you were smart;
Some wish that you had a heart.
The rest of us wish that you'd depart...
