Track Trivia:

  • There are two versions of Prisoner Of Society recorded. The original appeared on the single, but the track was re-recorded for the debut album.
  • There were also two film clips created. The "Australian Version" was created on a budget of $500. With increased popularity and cash flow, a slicker film clip was created for the U.S. market.

Lyrics:

(one, two) (one, two)
Well we don't need no one to tell us what to do
Oh yes we're on our own
And theres nothing you can do
So we don't need no one like you
To tell us what to do

We don't refer to the past
When showing what we've done
Our generation gap
Means the war is never won
The past is in your head
THE FUTURE'S IN OUR HANDS!

Cos I'm a brat
And I know everything
And I talk back
Cos I'm not listening
To anything you say

And if you count to 3 (one, two, three)
You'll see it's no emergency
You'll see I'm not the enemy
Just a Prisoner of Society

Well we don't need no one to tell us what to do
Oh yes we're on our own
And theres nothing you can do
So we don't need no one like you
To tell us what to do

Cos I'm a brat
And I know everything
And I talk back
Cos I'm not listening
To anything you say

And if you count to 3 (one, two, three)
You'll see it's no emergency
You'll see I'm not the enemy
Just a Prisoner of Society

(GO!)

Well we don't need no one to tell us what to do
Oh yes we're on our own
And theres nothing you can do
So we don't need no one like you
To tell us what to do

We don't refer to the past
When showing what we've done
Our generation gap
Means the war is never won
So we don't need no one like you
To tell us what to do

Cos I'm a brat
And I know everything
And I talk back
Cos I'm not listening
To anything you say

And if you count to 3 (one, two, three)
You'll see it's no emergency
You'll see I'm not the enemy
Just a Prisoner of Society

Society, Society
Society, Society
Society!

Track Trivia:

  • 10:15 Saturday Night was originally recorded by The Cure, and released on their album "Three Ordinary Boys" on the 8th of May 1979.
  • Scott Owen said in 1996: "We liked The Cure years ago, Boys Don't Cry was the first album I got, and 10:15 was the first song on the album, and I liked it the most and I just said 'I think we should do it.' It's easy to work out, it's only got two chords in it." Read More.

Lyrics:

10:15
Saturday night
And the tap drips
Under the strip light
And I'm sitting
In the kitchen sink
And the tap drips
Drip drip drip drip drip drip drip drip

Waiting
For the telephone to ring
And I'm wondering
Where she's been
And I'm crying
For yesterday
And the tap drips
Drip drip drip drip drip drip drip drip

It's always the same

Lyrics:

Diana, the Berlin wall
Even giants can take a fall
George Bush
The bikini wax
Below the belt
Hide the facts
Skase is gone
And Axle's mad
Kaufman was the best we had
John is dead
The Bastard lives
What the hell are we supposed to tell the kids?

Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Living in the 21st century
Life has changed
From everything we knew
All that we've been through
It doesn't make sense to me
Living in the 21st century

Global warming just ain't cool
Too much chlorine in the gene pool
Save the sheep
Clone the whales
Running out of options
Preparing to fail
Genocide
Defacto wife
G8 summit designed for life
Mohammed Ali
Kurt Cobain
There's no such thing as cheap cocaine
Never Again

Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Living in the 21st century
Life has changed
From everything we knew
All that we've been through
It doesn't make sense to me
Living in the 21st century
In the 21st century

Why isn't anyone around?
Why is everybody lying down?
Everyone is shouting but I can't hear a sound

No one wants to act their age
Take a pill
Join the rave
Living fast
Dying young
27 years of too much fun
Vietnam
And the markets crashed
Brian Wilson hide the stash
Making cents of interests rates
And Hefner is the devil incarnate
Devil incarnate

Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Living in the 21st century
Life has changed
From everything we knew
All that we've been through
It doesn't make sense to me
Living in the 21st

Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Living in the 21st century
Life has changed
From everything we knew
All that we've been through
It doesn't make sense to me
