I Need To Complain

Everyone ‘round here

Is driving me insane 

All the contradictions are screwing with my brain

I see their lives are good

I see that life is fine

Then they list all the reasons we’re not living in good times

My mother’s old refrain, I need to complain

I need to complain 

I need to complain – toast me with champagne

I need to complain

A casual remark 

Can earn you the Mark of Cain

And sorry just won’t cut it while the wolves are baying

There’s no hiding in a safe space

And no-one’s feeling safer

Everything you wanna say gets you denounced as traitor

Can you feel the hurricane, I need to complain

  I need to complain

I need to complain – bring on the cocaine

I need to complain

They’re shouting from the rooftops

Everybody’s just the same 

I’m not sure about the rules but I understand the game

They’re waiting for the pill

That changes one into another

Water into wine, sister to a brother

Well at least that’s the claim, I need to complain

I need to complain

I need to complain – smoke the Mary Jane

I need to complain

They’ve complained about desire

Well it leaves a sodden stain

A man might light a fire a woman fan the flame  

They think you can be retrained they think they can rewrite ya

But nature is eternal love will come on back to bite ya

And nothing’s gonna change, I need to complain

I need to complain

I need to complain – find another vein

I need to complain

Everyone ‘round here

Been driving me insane

Recruiting for the cause, every week a new campaign

They say their lives are nogood 

They say their lives are not fine

But I don’t believe they really know

What’s coming down the line

Here we go again, I need to complain

I need to complain   

Toast me with champagne, 

Bring on the cocaine

Smoke the Mary Jane 

Find another vein 

Here we go again – I need to complain
