lyrics

There's no need to be a reactionary,
The world is poisoned enough as it is.
When all the reviews read satisfactory,
Who cares if they're selling you shit?

And all the pretty girls, all the pretty girls are killing themselves.
And all the ugly girls, all the ugly girls are killing themselves.

And I bet that you were an anarchist,
At least when you were quoting Marx.
But bureaucracy got a hold on me,
And throttled my girlish heart.

And all the criminals, all the criminals reveal themselves,
And all the homophobes, all the homophobes stay in their homes.

So stand up and take my side,
And be the first to admit you know where I hide my supply,
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.
I'll be the first to admit I'm a little bit terrified.
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.

And swimming fish turned to sinking man,
But man wasn't good enough.
And it comforts me when you understand,
Cos I know that you're finding it tough.

But we're criminals, we're criminals to save our lives.
We're criminals, we're criminals but we survive.
And all the radicals, all the radicals can fuck themselves.
And all the gatekeepers, the hate preachers will gatekeep us.

So stand up and take my side,
And be the first to admit you know where I hide my supply,
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.
I'll be the first to admit I'm a little bit terrified.
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.

Despite the night, I clearly see,
A boy and girl, and you and me.
Too down to move, to proud to fall,
I hear your voice, that's all, that's all.

Despite the night, I clearly see,
A boy and girl, and you and me.
Too down to move, to proud to fall,
I hear your voice, that's all, that's all.

So stand up and take my side,
And be the first to admit you know where I hide my supply,
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.
I'll be the first to admit I'm a little bit terrified.
But in the criminals' spirituals everything turns out fine.
