I was singing this in the shower and thought it deserved a place here.

Actually, I would recommend listening to the whole album in case you haven't (Refused - The shape of punk to come). It's not just music, it's political education at it's best.
Also, the album came with a manifesto that further explores the subject of each song. This is the paragraph that goes along with this song:

Stuck by the deadly rhythm of the production line. Stuck by the conditions set by the capitalist market. Stuck by the necessities of living and forced to take part. If we are tired it is because we are supposed to be and if we are hungry it is because we have to be and if we are bored it is because it is expected of us. Bored and chained and stuck and dead. New forms of work camps are arranged and new ways of hiding the monotonous beat of slavery are being presented. The preliminary condition required for propelling the workers to the status of “free” producers and consumers of commodity was the violent expropriation of their own time. The spectacular return of time was made possible only after this dispossession of power. Urbanism is capitalism’s seizure of the natural and human environment; developing logically into absolute domination, capitalism can and must now remake the totality of space into it’s own setting. Time, work, environment and joy all have their norms set by modern ways of production.

Here you've got the whole manifesto (which I highly recommend)
The shape of punk to come manifesto

And as many of you will go all tl;dr on me, here are a couple of quotes from it which I think might be relevant to the interests of ATSers.

A dream only lasts so long. Imagine the pyramids inhabited by aliens and the dark corridors and the dreams and the longing for better financial conditions.

The Apollo programme was a hoax or so we say. The biggest lie was market economy that blinded us with the glory of prosperity and freedom.

So reclaim art, take back the fine culture for the people, the working people, the living people and burn down their art galleries and destroy their fancy constructions and buildings. Cause we, unlike the bourgeoisie, have nothing to lose and therefore our expression will be the only honest one, our words will be the only challenging ones and our art will be the one revolutionary expression

Who pays the newsman and who owns the radio stations and who runs the record label? Who benefits from the de-politicizing in art and music and who benefits from the clean sound of the next pop wonder? Who runs the game show and who pays the salaries to the reporters?

They are the slave dealers of our time. They are the inquisition. They are the machine that must be stopped.

Greetings Fellow Travellers


Leonard Cohen - "The Future"

Some Lyrics...

"You don't know me from the wind
You never will, you never did
I'm the little jew... Who wrote the bible

I've seen the nations rise and fall
I've heard their stories, heard them all
But love's the only engine of survival

Your servant here, he has been told
To say it clear, to say it cold
It's over, it ain't going any further

And now the wheels of heaven stop
You feel the devil's riding crop
Get ready for the future, it is murder


Things are gonna slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing, nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed the thresh hold
And it's overturned the order of the soul

When they said, 'repent'
I wonder what they meant"


Metallica - any song off "...And Justice For All"

Some lyrics...

"When a man lies, he murders some part of the world
These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives
And all this, I cannot bear to witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home?"

-Cliff Burton (RIP)
"To Live Is To Die"

I'm only here for the aliens...

This song is ATS

A pleasant faced man steps up to greet you
He smiles and says he's pleased to meet you
Beneath his hat the strangeness lies
Take it off, he's got three eyes
Truth is false and logic lost
Now the fourth dimension is crossed...

You have entered the Twilight Zone
Beyond this world strange things are known
Use the key, unlock the door
See what your fate might have in store...
Come explore your dreams' creation
Enter this world of imagination...
