Verse Bit in ska rhythm (upstrummed chords... you know- it's a piece of
piss)

   [Em1]You'll never make [B]the charts [G]if you sing about r[A]epression
   [Em1]Because pretending to be in [B]control [G]is a national [A]obsession
   [Em1]Even when the self [B]control [G]is let loose as [A]agression
  "[Em1]Oh, you know, he doesn't [B]mean it man, it's his [G]natural exp[A]ression"

"It's his natural expression"

   [Em1]Some say the cons[B]tant hammering [G]is following a [A]beat
   [Em1]And popsongs heard [B]to pass the time [G]will break up the rou[A]tine

Chorus: (power chords)

In some [B]hazy day pre-[E]radio, you [B]hear the hammers [E]sing
Now they [C]shout above the [G]popsongs, go unn[F#]oticed and give [B]in

      [B]     [B]        [G]         [A]         
      [B]Go un[B]noticed [G]and give [A]in
Verse 3

   [Em1]Claims to break up the [B]routine- be[G]comes a part of [A]it
   [Em1]But no signs of improve[B]ment in the [G]way the hammers [A]hit
   [Em1]You see the way the [B]workers act when the [G]chains relax a [A]bit
   [Em1]It indicates [B]their mental [G]state as happy [A]clean and fit

Interlude bit again


A bunch of B majors some ska, then some not.... and stuff


Chorus bit again

[B]After day long [E]happy tunes it's [B]prime reaction [E]time
[B]Blob out horiz[E]ontal to the [B]spectacle [E]sublime
[C]Replacing convers[G]ation space with [C]pleasantries that [G]rhyme
[C]"Have a good week[G]end folks just make [F#]sure you're back by [B]9"

      [B]          [B]            [G]        [A] 
      [B]Just make [B]sure you're [G]back by [A]9
Verse 4

   [Em1]So when the batteries went [B]flat and the [G]DJ went off [A]air
   [Em1]The atmosphere in the [B]factory [G]made everyone a[A]ware

Chorus again

They'd been [B]replacing conver[E]sation space with de[B]pendency on [E]sound
So [C]when the popsongs [G]came back on, they [F#]turned the whole thing [B]down
So [C]when the popsongs [G]came back on, they [F#]turned the whole thing [B]down
