One more Song …

Well we all learned how to use a fork and a knife
How sometimes we have to wear a suit and tie
And understand these things are what give us the right
To go around the world acting superior
We live with missiles and the armaments cache
With rewritten histories and a fictional past
And though some of us still have questions to ask
This ship, she sails without a captain

Goddamn the Master Race that we’re born in
Goddamn the howling wolf that we’re serving
I’ve had it up to here . . .

And the opposition, we ain’t doing so well
Our understanding is weak and our knowledge is small
And though kids scrawl frustration on the back street wall
Most of them can’t even spell bastard

MASTER RACE
Justin Sullivan, New Model Army, 1986
