Verse Bit in ska rhythm (upstrummed chords... you know- it's a piece of piss) Em1 B G A You'll never make the charts if you sing about repression Em1 B G A Because pretending to be in control is a national obsession Em1 B G A Even when the self control is let loose as agression Em1 B G A "Oh, you know, he doesn't mean it man, it's his natural expression"

"It's his natural expression" Em1 B G A Some say the constant hammering is following a beat Em1 B G A And popsongs heard to pass the time will break up the routine Chorus: (power chords) B E B E In some hazy day pre-radio, you hear the hammers sing C G F# B Now they shout above the popsongs, go unnoticed and give in B B G A B B G A Go unnoticed and give in Verse 3 Em1 B G A Claims to break up the routine- becomes a part of it Em1 B G A But no signs of improvement in the way the hammers hit Em1 B G A You see the way the workers act when the chains relax a bit Em1 B G A It indicates their mental state as happy clean and fit Interlude bit again A bunch of B majors some ska, then some not.... and stuff Chorus bit again B E B E After day long happy tunes it's prime reaction time B E B E Blob out horizontal to the spectacle sublime C G C G Replacing conversation space with pleasantries that rhyme C G F# B "Have a good weekend folks just make sure you're back by 9" B B G A B B G A Just make sure you're back by 9 Verse 4 Em1 B G A So when the batteries went flat and the DJ went off air Em1 B G A The atmosphere in the factory made everyone aware Chorus again B E B E They'd been replacing conversation space with dependency on sound C G F# B So when the popsongs came back on, they turned the whole thing down C G F# B So when the popsongs came back on, they turned the whole thing down =============================================================================
