Bunch of Creeps – Written Saturday 29th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Bunch of Creeps

what a good life they lead
on good luck and dreams
show me the way home
show me where to go
condensed, patronise
show me where to go
how does it work
the old boys network
that gives you crap opinions
and puts you at the top
with a brain like a sieve
telling everything and everyone
just how to live
do as i say, not as i preach
that is the message
that they teach
it is a puppet government
just a bunch of creeps
if i am not a public schoolboy
then i will never run the country
oxford and cambridge for me
is a dream locked in a tower
so it is good
that i do not want to be at the top
or crave life changing power
invade our television screens
with more false thoughts
i know what they speak
i know who they are
just a bunch of creeps
