Listen Up Loser

                                  Listen UP Loser

So you joined the Party 
And you shaved your head
And now you march around in your Black and Red
And the things you've done 
And the things you've said
Make it seem to me
You'd be better off dead

Now you're social life's
On life support
We're all lookin' forward 
To your day in court
And your point of view's runnin' out of time
Here's a shockin' piece of Breaking News
Your hate-fueled fury's 
A Federal Crime,

     Better listen up Loser
     While you've still got time
     To amend your life
     And change your mind

     Gonna find yourself alone 
     When you're old and grey
     And nobody wants 
     To hear a thing you say -
     Better WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP
     WAKE UP NOW,
     Gotta learn to live
     Gotta learn to give 
     Somehow...

So you got your Bible 
And you got your sword
Gonna rule 'em all
With the Holy Word 
And you've got no time 
For a different view
Cause you know the Angels 
Are in line with you -

    Better listen up Loser
    While you still got time 
    To amend your life
    And change your mind

    Gonna find yourself alone and grey
    And nobody wants to hear a thing you say -
    Better WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP 
    WAKE UP NOW.
    Gotta learn to live
    Gotta learn to give
    Somehow....

Well you gave your vote
To the Radical Right
And you set your values 
Out of sight 
And you set your sights
On a bygone time
When race relations
Had no reason or rhyme

     Better listen up listen Loser
     While you've still got time
     To amend your life 
     And change your mind

     Gonna find yourself
     Alone and grey
     And nobody wants to hear a thing you say -
     Better WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP
     WAKE UP NOW.
     Gotta learn to live
     Gotta learn to give
     Somehow....
