    Lyrics

    Kerosene Kathy is bringing in the mail
    Its a 50/50 choice, pass Go or go to jail
    You can see her with her matches on the pavement in the rain
    Glowing by the light of this southbound train

    She's shouting "good Christian soldiers stamp their
    ration book with failure
    "And twinkle little Stalin's hung his hat up on my nail you're
    "Gonna wish you had of fought when your last breath comes
    "Cos we never want for nothing 'cept a little freedom"

    And I've seen it all before
    And I've seen it all before

    Well they brought me to the bars when I was fourteen
    A sexy little girl and a seedy little magazine
    The painted out my life on a page of black and white
    Cos there's no call for justice when you're dealing in spite

    And I landed on a tightrope on the hookline of a dare
    A little ragged at the edges but not beyond repair
    With a hole in every pocket and half a bag of tricks
    But it was nothing that a tenner and a bullet couldn't fix

    And I've seen it all before
    And I've seen it all before

    My money is on anger, they say the form is good

    They say the odds are stacked
    And this side of Birmingham's a good place to be
    When they finally light the match

    And I've seen it all before
    And I've seen it all before

    Just wait till they see me out on the front page
    Just wait till they remember how they stroked this rage
    Shining like a penny in the back slum gutter
    Like a single note sonata in the train conductors stutter

    Make sure they get to see me when I'm hanging from the ceiling
    Get each detail of exactly how they're feeling
    Cos Five have got the rights to the docu-soap shows
    They'll buy the truth off with some donuts and a sweet red rose

    And I've seen it all before
    And I've seen it all before

    My money is on anger, they say the form is good
    They say the odds are stacked
    And this side of Birmingham's a good place to be
    When they finally light the match

    And I've seen it all before
    And I've seen it all before
