    What's that XTC? Governments are corrupt? The church actually does bad things sometimes?? Being bad is bad??? They make it all go down so easy with their mellow tunes...

    I don't know much about this band, but this is the second track of theirs I've heard that shows they really knew how to write lyrics, something common to most of the post-punk bands, along with the original Clash, Sex Pistols, Jam and Stranglers, not to mention Patrick whatever-his-name-was with the safety pins and, lol, Jilted John.
