You pay your taxes, you serve your time
And all that money, where does it go?
Schools, prisons, hospitals, roads

  • http://www.theprimalscream.com/press/nme-17july02.html PS.This song is awesome.
  • "I ain't a bottler, but I'm a songwriter, right? I ain't scared of anything, I've got nothing to hide, I'll stand up for what I believe in. Whether it be Satpal Ram, or the Liverpool dockers, or the Palestinians, I'll fuckin' say what I believe. Bet I'm a fuckin' songwriter and I can change any line that I want. And if anybody's got a problem with that they can come and ask me to my face." "The song was not all about dropping bombs on the Pentagon. That was one line in the song. If you listen to the rest of the lyrics you can work out what the song's about We only ever played it in that incarnation about four times live. It was never, ever recorded. It was tried out live, as were other songs. I'm really, really bored with it by now. That's the thing. I'm bored with the issue. It's like, big fuckin' deal."
  • *Some people, including voices at NME, have suggested changing the title constitutes bottling it.* "Well, have those people ever put themselves on the firing line for anything? They've never done it as far as I can see. I've done it loads of times, I've put my name to loads of issues, I've stood up, let my face be seen." Cont.
  • Agreed. *Why did you change the title from 'Bomb The Pentagon'?* "Because I didn't think it was that good a line. It was too sensational, it had shock value and I think that doesn't always make for great rock'n'roll. I wanted it to be more ominous. It was too obvious, it would have meant the song would have been tied to a specific time and place, and that's not good. And it's too much a dumb slogan. So that's why I changed it. I just thought, 'You know what? It's not that great.' Cont.
  • inphanta: No, Sony didn't make them. They did of their own volition.
  • "sweet sixteen, dehumanized, deathhead factory suicide"
  • This was going to be called 'Bomb the Pentagon' (in reference to 9/11), but Sony made them change the lyrics. How punk.
  • this song kicks all kinds of ass
  • Song is kinda annoying actually.
  • I've never heard this...good shit!
