Arts and sciences, love and politics
They connect to me, know your enemy ...
I was a child of the eighties,
that’s how I started creating
With real pop stars and better tv shows
That’s how my nostalgia remembers
When I was a teenager in the nineties
The Englishmen rediscovered their guitars
They reinvented London in the sixties
I arrived at the arse end of Britpop...
Arts and Sciences, they connect to me
Love and Politics, know your enemies
They surrender to everything that’s hateful
They surrender to everything thats painful
They surrender to everything (don’t surrender)
I didn’t have a computer
My mobile phone was a Nokia
We started using technology for music
Into another millennia
With our new friends we could reimpose electro
We had to fix the broken manifesto
We celebrated our scene within the system
No one in London was listening...
Now I am living in Berlin
Another decade looming in
But in the fortress of solitude and exile
We’re doing better than ever ...
Arts and sciences, they connect to me
Love and Politics, it gives me energy
Oh Arts and Sciences,
my Love of Politics
Don’t surrender to anyone
Just surrender to everyone
Don’t surrender to anyone
Never surrender.
