Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

They tried to get me with the TV show,
But I wouldn't have none of it, no, no, no.
Standards and values on the living room screen,
Sarah Jessie Parker acting mean.
She's got it all, that's what they want you to think,
But if you read between the lines, you'll see the missing link.
She's just a puppet in their indoctrination plan,
"Be like me girls and become a real man,"
Live to the full, always act flash,
Don't use your brain when your body makes a splash.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

They tried to get me in the supermarket store,
Bought what I wanted, and they said "buy more."
Gallons of crap that nobody really needs,
Bright coloured wrappers to suit assorted greeds.
They know it all, that's what they want you to think,
But if you read between the lines, you'll see the missing link.
Buy this product, pay for the crap,
One quarter for the product, three quarters for the wrap.
Be a happy family, like the people on the pack,
Pay up to the profit, and you'll never look back.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

They tried to get me with their learning and their books,
Their deep understanding and intelligent looks,
All of the time, they never ever saw me,
They were just looking for what they wanted to see.
They know it all, that's what they want you to think,
But if you read between the lines, you'll see the missing link.
Books are easy back ups for what they do to you,
They'll bind you up as slaves for the privileged few,
Proof lies in history, say "that's how it always was,
Slavery and mastery - be one of us."

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

Tried to get me with religion and their Christ,
Said I'd get to heaven if I acted real nice,
But they were just preparing a crucifix for me,
A life of guilt and pain, of holy misery.
They know it all, that's what they want you to think,
But if you read between the lines, you'll see the missing link.
The bible's just a blueprint for their morality scam,
Another load of shit about how it's never been.
They stand there in the pulpit, doling out their lies,
Offering forgiveness, then they talk of eyes for eyes.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

They tried to get me, but I won't be got,
They say I'm a misfit but I say I'm not,
I never set out to exploit another,
Those smarmy bastards would steal from their mother.
They got it all, that's what they want you to think,
But if you read between the lines, you'll see the missing link.
They plundered and slaughtered in the name of truth,
Acceptance of normality is what they want from you as proof,
They think they got the answers, but there's something that they missed,
Their cup which overfloweth, is just filled up with piss.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well I got it all up here, see
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Well they think they got it all out there, see
Well they can fuck off, cos they ain't got me, and they can't buy my dignity,
Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Let me tell you, I got it up here see.
