New Art Riot Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Vintage aromas and vintage ideals
Old men graying to a dying country's needs
Waiting for a knighthood to while away the hours
Listen and learn, now it's time to kill your betters

Museums are dead, take a new art stance
Paint mass suicide on the aspiration diktat

Hospital closure kills more than car bombs ever will
But it saves money because people are expendable
You cold shoulder insurgents yet love arms dealers
Everybody's taking drugs as it makes governing easier

Museums are dead, take a new art stance
Paint mass suicide on the aspiration diktat
Sell out the past and learn to obey
You spit out and douse a Molotov cocktail

Revolution soon dies, sold out for a pay rise
China, Russia, England, all washed up in power abuse
Terrorism is an excuse that the ruling class use
Wipe out aristocracy now kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

England makes judgments of old school propaganda
The only threat to heads is silenced by dumb pleasure
Museums are dead, take a new art stance
Paint mass suicide on the aspiration diktat

Songwriters
