lyrics

we were all there for the good times, everyone was getting high,
then it started taking over, and nobody knew why,
paranoia's setting in, everybody dropping pounds,
can't get enough of this new drug we found

surprise surprise, it's bright again
you've missed your dole appointment, so you'll get back on the train
you read it in the paper, the kitten's smite another name
your thinking what you've got into so grab your phone and ring

oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines
oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines

oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines
oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines

the line is dead!
they always blame it on the drugs, and not their binging mindless sons
the line is dead!
it's finally under their control...

we were all there for the good times, everyone was getting high,
but then it started taking over, and nobody knew why,

surprise surprise, they'll write again
that the drugs they are the problem, that's what's driving us insane
parents, politicians, you think you've won a game
mephedrone's illegal, our problems still remain

oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines
oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines

oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines
oh eight hund-dred dead U K
where are the amphetamines

the line is dead!
they always blame it on the drugs, and not their bingeing mindless sons
the line is dead!
it's finally under their control...

the line is dead!
it's against the law,
the line is dead!
we're finally under their control, but no we're fucking not
