I hear they're trying to make us all the same

It's mind control by any other name
Who's gonna pay the price


For this foolish paradise

Oh?omma don't take that train



I hear it said we're headed too far south

Chinese whispers go by word of mouth

Rules for every size and shape

The nag has gone, shut the gate
Once you're in you're never getting out




I'm so misunderstood

There goes my manlihood
She's in my face again


With that picture of innocence



No drinks, No smokes


No dicking around
No dirty jokes

Straight lace, straight face
The old straight jacket


We got no hope


I hear they're gonna try out something new



I can feel it sticking to my shoe
So this is what tomorrow holds

Hopes and dreams are bought and sold


But still the world is misty green and blue


I', so misunderstood

There goes my mannish boyhood

She's in my face again

With that picture of innocence



No deals, No strokes

No forbidden fruit

No holy smoke


What next, no sex
That's the end of the road

That's the end of the road


We got no hope



No drinks, No smokes
No dicking around

No dirty jokes

Straight lace, straight face

The old straight jacket
We got no hope




No deals, No strokes

No forbidden fruit

No holy smoke

What next, no sex


That's the end of the road
We got no hope
