“Thought Criminal” is about the recent SOPA and PIPA battles in the US. It can be seen as Orwell’s 1984 in song.

Verse 1

Wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time
You’re the Thought Criminal.
Tarted up for convention,
Smashed into a cage, every day.

Verse 2

Tarted up for convention,
In every single way.
A paper pushing prop,
In the death machine!

Reprise

Wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time
You’re the Thought Criminal.

Verse 3

Little Ms. Peaches and Cream waves at you,
From her corner office.
The dominatrix of Nightmare’s confined,
Thumping co-ordinated conformity,
Into our horny, mangled minds!

Reprise

Wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time
You’re the Thought Criminal.

Verse 4

The hell-fire of conformity starts early,
A comfortable life and comfortable things.
The bitch who laughs,
At your stupid jokes and grins.

Reprise
Wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time,
You’re the Thought Criminal.

Verse 5

Natural selection is determined,
To see the ass-clowns in Congress succeed.
Shutting down the internet,
With SOPA and PIPA!
Planting the seed!
For YOU!
The Thought Criminal!

Reprise

Right Man, In the right place, at the right time,
You’re the Thought Criminal.

Verse 6

Fuck them all,
With your freedom filled brain!
Think, Be, Achieve!

Reprise

Right Man, In the right place, at the right time,
You’re the Thought Criminal.

Verse 7

Stick a clog in the wheel,
Destroy their creed.
Finish them,
Fill them with your crude, quantitatively uneased,
THOUGHT CRIMES!

Reprise

Right Man, In the right place, at the right time!
You’re the Thought Criminal!
