Exploitation is alive on the streets
I'll probably just stay in my room
Everything I ever believed in hangs
limp like a burst balloon
Christmas is coming
man is getting fat
Me - I'm getting sucked in -
thought I was smarter than that

One side is dirty red
one side is freezing blue
You stand in the middle
'cos you've nothing better to do
Give you a choice
even though I know
>You rarely think
start making decisions
Start to sink

When you've grown up afraid
with a built in fear
Of authoritive parents
and your pre-planned career
And your neck is stretched
in a very civilised noose
Give you a choice
let it die or let is loose

Christmas is coming
man is getting fat
Please put in a penny
in society's hat

Christmas is coming
man is getting fat
Please put in a penny
in society's hat
