20% Amnesia

20% Amnesia
What is your destiny? the policewoman said 20% amnesia
The word that she wanted was destination I'm afraid 20% amnesia
This is your future boy, this is your fate 20% amnesia
And you're obsolete and they can't afford to educate you 20% amnesia
In his bedtime boot boy jersey
Ringing up some fantasy tart
Give me strength or give me mercy
Life intimidates art
CHORUS:
Give me strength or give me mercy
Don't let me lose heart
From rage to anaesthesia
Twenty percent amnesia
Were you passed out on the sofa 20% amnesia
While justice was bartered by a drunken oaf? 20% amnesia
This is all your glorious country thinks of your life 20% amnesia
Stripped Jack naked with a Stanley knife 20% amnesia
So the German Queen went home again
But she couldn't find forgiveness
They made a fist of her hand of friendship
But it's only business
CHORUS
The wine you drink has never seen a grape
And now your sci-fi suit has lost its shape
But its a dangerous game that comedy plays
Sometimes it tells you the truth, sometimes it delays it
Think back, think back if you still can
When the trumpet sounded and the world began
Somebody said We must have won
So they started burying the bogeyman
Mister Gorbachov came cap in hand 20% amnesia
From a bankrupt land to a bankrupt land 20% amnesia
Mister Gorbachov and some other fella 20% amnesia
Were taken to a show called Cinderella 20% amnesia
It wasn't an accident, it wasn't a mystery 20% amnesia
It was calculated and the rest is history 20% amnesia
You don't have to listen to me
That's the triumph of free will
When there are promises to break
And dreams to kill
CHORUS
