Standards - Lyrics by Jam, The


Lyrics

Oh we make the standards and we make the rules
And if you don't abide by them you must be a fool
We have the power to control the whole land
You never must question our motives or plans -
'cause we'll outlaw your voices, do anything we want
We've nothing to fear from the nation
We'll throw you out of your houses if you get too much
If we have to we'll destroy your generation

'cause we've built up a frontage and we've gained respect
There's no one to endanger our position -

Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok
Standards rule ok

And we don't like people who stand in our way
Awareness is gonna be redundant
And ignorance is strength, we have god on our side
Look, you know what happend to winston
