Subway Sect: Life Underground

Jon Savage, Sounds, 1 July 1978

Everyone's a prostitute
Singing in the song in prison
Moral standards the wallpaper
The wall's a bad religion

Media teach me what to speak
Take my decisions
It's how to find your inner self time
On the television

No one knows what they're for
No one even cares
We'll should publicity handouts
Nobody's scared

So take me talking with clichés
Betray yourself for money
Having is more than being now...

'Nobody's Scared'
