  • 1977 and we are going mad
    It's 1977 and we've seen too many ads
    1977 and we're gonna show them all
    That apathy's a drag

    My mind is like a plastic bag
    That corresponds to all those ads
    It sucks up all the rubbish
    That is fed in through by ear
    I eat Kleenex for breakfast
    And use soft hygienic Weetabix
    To dry my tears

    My mind is like a switchboard
    With crossed and tangled lines
    Contented with confusion
    That is plugged into my head
    I don't know what's going on
    It's the operator's job, not mine
    I said

    My dreams I daren't remember
    Or tell you what I've seen
    I've dreamt that I was Hitler
    The ruler of the sea
    The ruler of the universe
    The ruler of the supermarket
    And even fatalistic me
