The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Daycare Nation


Daycare Nation
You're living in your own home
You're living in your own world
You're living in a waking dream
You're living in the best of all possible worlds

The smell of contagion
In the hall of your apartment
And a soft little scratching
On the wall of the room next to yours

And thousands of Mr Odds never seem to get a shirt on
Thousands of Mr Odds using tea bags everyday
Thousands of Mr Odds living inside of Royal Oak station

Near Paddington. Very grim.
Daycare nation
Daycare nation

They're not real
They're there by accident
They're not real
It's just an accident of birth

In the daycare nation

Cult Of The Basement
If things seemed weird back in February 1989, when we made this baby, the Weird were going shopping on bikes. In a farmhouse in the dead of winter, in personal circumstances too bizarre and complex to relate, we set about making our "commercial suicide" album. For the first time, I felt, we had made an album that really sounded like us. This record does have personality. One of my favourites, this.
