Lyrics inspired by Stanley Milgram 's experiments on obedience to authority.

Recorded in 1993 on 16-track analogue tape at Durham Street Studio, Hartlepool, UK. Session engineered by John Grayson with additional production by Graham Kay. Mixed by Steve Cooke and Graham Kay.
All of the synth sounds and drums came from a Yamaha QY10 sequencer/tone module.
Press that button
You must obey
The subject is wrong
So he must pay..

Obeying orders,
Obeying orders

You came to this place
Of your own free will,
Signed the contract
And it binds you –still..

Obeying orders
Obeying orders

The same old excuse
Again and again
We're just obeying orders
So we're not to blame...

A shot is fired
From the top of the wall
The bullet's on target
And a young man falls..

Obeying orders..
obeying orders..

He shrugged his shoulders
As he closed the oven door
Saying: "What you do you expect
In a time of war?"

Obeying orders.
Obeying orders.

The same old excuse
Again and again
We're just obeying orders
So we're not to blame..
[x2]

It's always the same
It's always the same
It's - always -the same
We're not.. to blame.
