MORBID HUMOR - Oh my god LYRICS WANTED !!!

Please help me out. I´m desperately searching for the lyrics of the song `Oh my god´ by MORBID HUMOR. This early 80ies anarcho punk band shared members with legandary ANTI-SYSTEM.
They appeared on a split 7" w/ ANTI-SYSTEM (Reconciliation Records, 198?), on the `DAFFODILS TO THE DAFFODILS HERE'S THE DAFFODILS´ Comp Lp (Pax Records, 1984)
and on the `BREAK THE SILENCE´ tape comp (Break the silence 198?).

Did the split 7" w/ ANTI-SYSTEM come with a lyric sheet originally? Because my copy doesn´t have one :-(

`Oh my god´ (pt 1 and 2) is one of the best punk ballads I ever heard. I´m going to post the split 7" very soon!!

Thx for your help

Hi Chris/Rob,

many thanks for the charming compliment.

I'd change some of the lyrics if I could - however, here's what I laid down:

I hate the way you decide their fate
I hate the way you decide their mate
I hate the prisons you call zoos
I hate their lives being up to you
I hate the disturbing things you do
I hate their lives being up to you
I hate the decisions you don’t talk about
I hate the scientists tall and stout
I hate feeling guilty for the meat I ate
I hate being told, ‘tough shit you’re far too late’
I hate living with a cannibalistic tribe
I hate their talk of the English Prime
I hate fat bastards promoting death
I hate television advertising death
I hate butchers selling death
Oh my god get me out of this fucking mess

If I were an animal I’d live on dreams alone
No wilderness beneath my feet, no hedges are my home
I wouldn’t romp in fields of happiness
No pollen in the sun sun-filled sky
There’d be no threats to my existence
There be no passers-by

If I were an animal my mind would rage
If I were an animal, no countryside – an iron cage

If I were an animal I’d live on dreams alone
No wilderness beneath my feet, no hedges my home
You’d sling me in a cage and leave me to rot
Injecting your chemical and then I’m forgot

If I were an animal of my mind would rage
If I were an animal, no countryside – an iron cage
If I were an animal of course my mind would rage
If I were an animal, no countryside – an iron cold cage

Cage
Rage

If I were an animal of my mind would rage
If I were an animal, no countryside – an iron cage

If I were an animal I’d live on dreams alone
No wilderness beneath my feet, no hedges my home
sling me in a cage, sling me in a cage and leave me to rot
Injecting your chemical, inject your chemicals and then I’m forgot

Cage.

Again, cheers.

Regards
Si (Nogsy)

Iiiii don´t believe it!!!

I don´t know what makes me happier, the fact that I finally got the lyrics to that incredible song or the fact that you Nogsy posted them yourself!! What an honour to me.
Would it be okay if I upload the Split 7" (and maybe the "Defense.." 7") and post it here?
Thx so much for the lyrics!!
Rob

Hi Rob,

again, thanks for the interest and enthusiam.

Of course, please feel free to post whatever AS/Humour material you want - I'm all for sharing.
I've posted some Humour pics here:
http://si-site.blogspot.com/, use them to accompany your post if you like - they'll be exclusive for a while. Though, I did forget to credit the photographer, Fritz - so if you do use any please give a shout to him.

As for my sparse blog, I intend to start stuffing some old ephemera on there in the new year, so you might like to keep an eye on it.

Keep up the good work.

Regards
Si
