Lyrics

Here is the news:
According to the latest world population survey,
Figures have reached danger point, my god!
London: 15 million 75 thousand.
New York: 80 million.
Paris: 15 million and 30.
China: 1000 million.
Billington-Spa: lots!
My studies include exophagy
I formed my own society
To crush the power of fecundity
The world will overpopulate
Unless you claim infertility
So who will buy a drink for me, your Messiah?
We are not your friends
We don't give a damn for what you're saying
We're here to live our lives
I propose to give the pill
Free of charge to those that feel
That they are not infertible
The crops of few, the cattle gun
There's only one way to linger on
So who will buy a drink for me, your Messiah?
We are not your friends
We don't give a damn for what you're saying
We're here to live our lives
Achtung, achtung! These are your orders:
Anyone found guilty of consuming more than their allotted amount of air
Will be slaughtered and cremated.
Only one cubic foot of air is allowed...
I've prepared a document legalising mass abortion
We will turn a blind eye to infanticide
We are not your friends
We don't give a damn for what you're saying
We're here to live our lives
You don't seem to hear me clear
Do I talk above your sphere?
Let me explain my project, dear
Show you how I'll save the world
Or let it die within the year
Why do you look that way at me, your Messiah?
We are not your friends
We don't give a damn for what you're saying
We're here to live our lives
We are hungry men
We don't give a damn for what you're saying
We're here to eat you
