lyrics

Everything's Sex
You say 
I'm so repressed 
That "apart from drugs and cigarettes 
There's really nothing more to life than sex! 
every book mankind's churned out, 
It's what every sentence is really about" 
But if that's the way 
That you feel 
Then I say 
How come you're so surprised 
When you get so depressed? 
Is it any wonder you're depressed?
If everything has a subtext 
On the subject by which we're all possessed 
'cause there's really nothing more to life than sex! 
The bombing of 
Third world nations 
Is all about sexual frustration
And when lives get wrecked? 
Well, that's just a side-effect 
Then how come you're so surprised 
When you get so depressed? 
Is it any wonder you're depressed?

If the bed is not for rest 
And apart the birth 
That comes from it and death 
There's really nothing more to life than sex! 
If shagging is 
Our only mission, 
And love is
Just a euphemism, 
And political action
Is just a dull distraction, 
How come you're so surprised 
When you get so depressed? 
Is it any wonder you're depressed?
