    Lyrics

    Strikes across the frontier and strikes for higher wage
    Planet lurches to the right as ideologies engage
    Suddenly it's repression, moratorium on rights
    What did they think the politics of panic would invite?
    Person in the street shrugs -- "Security comes first"
    But the trouble with normal is it always gets worse

    Callous men in business costume speak computerese
    Play pinball with the third world trying to keep it on its knees
    Their single crop starvation plans put sugar in your tea
    And the local third world's kept on reservations you don't see
    "It'll all go back to normal if we put our nation first"
    But the trouble with normal is it always gets worse

    Fashionable fascism dominates the scene
    When the ends don't meet it's easier to justify the means
    Tenants get the dregs and the landlords get the cream
    As the grinding devolution of the democratic dream
    Brings us men in gas masks dancing while the shells burst
    The trouble with normal is it always gets worse
