The Clash Lost In The Supermarket Lyrics

Last updated: 11/11/2010 10:00:00 AM

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for that special offer
A guaranteed personality

I wasn't born so much as I fell out
Nobody seemed to notice me
We had a hedge back home in the suburbs
Over which I never could see

I heard the people who lived on the ceiling
Scream and fight most scarily
Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling
That's how it's been all around me


I'm all tuned in, I see all the programmes
I save coupons from packets of tea
I've got my giant hit discoteque album
I empty a bottle and I feel a bit free

The kids in the halls and the pipes in the walls
Make me noises for company
Long distance callers make long distance calls
And the silence makes me lonely


And it's not hear
It disappear
I'm all lost

Most Amazing Lyrics Ever | Reviewer: Matt | 11/11/10

Sense memory. Isolation. Identity. Consumerism. All effortlessly worded, perfectly on the money, as if Mick Jones had boiled Freud's Id, ego, and super-ego structural model into a pop song. Oh, wait, he did. And every nuance resonates, not a false step anywhere. This and "Stay Free" are the most well crafted songs in this stunning bands catalog.

Using my time throwing away my thoughts | Reviewer: Cassandra | 3/14/10

I this this song is amazing. I mean, sure, it doesn't cover any big bad world issues of now, but it's just beautiful. It's actually my husband and I's "song" as people say, and we have so many memories and moments and just things attatched to it.
