Aquarius 04:25
[spoken] Being the most forward thinking of all the signs of the zodiac, every Aquarian is a relentless eccentric, a time bomb of brave new ideas, just waiting to explode onto the rest of the world... Aquarius! Break the mould They'll try and force you in Break the mould! Aquarius Stand your ground They'll try and drag you down Oh won't you please stand your ground The power in my star Lies in the knowledge I bear Drink from it No, the answers are not far Bathe in the knowledge I bear Cleanse your soul! The knowledge I bear Step out of the building Feel the air on your skin This situation is too small For Aquarius Step out of the building Feel the air on your skin This situation is too small To contain Aquarius The power in my star Lies in the knowledge I bear Drink from it And the answers are not far Bathe in the knowledge I bear Cleanse your soul! The knowledge I bear Yeeeah! Stand your ground! Aquarius Stand tall! Aquarius Stand your ground! Aquarius Stand tall! Aquarius

Yeah! Just let yourself go Just let yourself go You see he spied a miniskirt God damn he followed it all night In his brand new expensive Levi's FCUK t-shirt, nice and tight And the sweat it stung his eyes As he envisioned his young prize When he spun her round and he met her gaze He saw the whole world was in disguise Every single one of you has a duty to perform tonight I wanna see your darkest fears shaken from you like sweat Children of Voodoo, you're safe in our arms So let me tell you a little bit more about our friend, haha The label on his bottle gave him the poise of a ladies man And... made Venus rise in her, as he took her by the hand And they danced a joyless hustle to every corporate sponsored song And they closed their eyes and they prayed and begged, From this whore house to be gone I'm sick to death of hearing every single day That you can weave yourself your own tale of star-crossed lovers In only the time it will take you to buy a young lady a drink So I'm gonna claim back my sexual freedom now I'm gonna make a move now to have a love of my own To share the most beautiful thing I can share I'll make it on my own way, ain't no stories be being told here Yeah! Hallelujah Sing Hallelujah Sing Hallelujah Sing Hallelujah! 1, 2, 3, 4... I'll show you freedom now! Yeah, something to believe in now! Striding through that storm now! And as we move into the new life hand in hand We'll build the promised land Yeah, the promised land

Freud 03:56
Freud was right, it's all about sex! The secret lust of a Britain repressed Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex The silent cause of all human distress People of the world wake up to your love Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above Shackles minds in this frustrated nation Kept cruelly in check by sexual deprivation So swallow Snuffy's Voodoo viagra pill We're gonna cure your fear of the ultimate thrill Are you feeling lonely? Then take my hand and trust in Freud And if you're feeling empty Well, let's let pleasure fill the void Freud was right, it's all about sex! The secret lust of a Britain repressed Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex The silent cause of all human distress People of the world wake up to your love Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above Open your mind to this brand new ideal Perhaps there's nothing taboo about how good it feels So never hold it back, your desire is sacred And you pulled all your friends so let's all get naked Come on now! Free yourself from your Calvin Kleins That chastity built is a lock on your mind And your mouth's still talking when it should be sucking And tell me why am I singing when I could be f**king Are you feeling lonely? Then take my hand and trust in Freud And if you're feeling empty Well, let's let pleasure fill the void [seductive break] Yeah! Check it out people... here comes Dr Spanky on the my oh my! Freud was right, it's all about sex! The secret lust of a Britain repressed Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex The silent cause of all human distress People of the world wake up to your love Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love People of the world wake up to your love Yeah!

Why must your motives be bound by the greed of the 21st century Lurking in the shadows of your every activity When you hold the scalpel I'm afraid of your motives Am I just another target you must meet to boost your budget? One percent here, and one percent there It's gradually increasing not decreasing the fear Statistics the disguise of society's demise Figures on the gravestones at the end of our lives Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life? Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life? I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception I feel the growing pain fed by the hand of the corporate monstrosity Grinning in the dark, it gambles our lives away Holding a cure so close but just out of reach And licking up the profit in the stench and the reek One victim more, another coin in your claws The monster grows in size, it devours the law It swallows you up when you first open your eyes And the figure carves a gravestone waiting for you to die Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a previous life? Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life? I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception [instrumental break] Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a previous life? Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life? I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception
