Sulla B side del singolo “You Love Us”. Una versione successiva, parzialmente differente si trova nel debut album “Generation Terrorists”

You Love Us
Generation Terrorists

La frase citata in introduzione al brano è di Bobby Seale, cofondatore delle Pantere nere.
“So the concept is this, basically / We're gonna walk on this nation / We're gonna walk on this racist power structure / And we're gonna say to the whole damn government: 'Stick 'em up motherfucker This is a hold up / We come for what's ours'”

Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from sharp neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like born dead
Free heroin shots for those who will no longer beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in societies eyes
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

The only free choice is the refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicide or comfort pain
Cigarette dead, lips suck red
Choked on the same line that we've all said

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we said
You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we said...

Nella versione presente sull'album del 1992 la differenza sostanziale mi pare consista solo nel verso "Democracy is an empty lie"...
