Passive Resistance Lyrics

Artist: Graham Parker
Album: The Real Macaw


CApo at 2 C F C Am C F Am G
C F Am C F Am G
Nothing can be further removed, not everybody wants to be soothed ooooh
D C Am D G C
they're out there now in their padded cells and armchairs
Am D G
Waiting for the nervous twitch that signals fear
C F Am C F Am G
Hooked up to a cardiogram set up so it cuts out when you cry or laugh
D C Am D G C
Worked by those who if you screw up treat you to a broken nose
Am D G
If you tap your toes
C G F
Passive resistance! If it's not for them then it's not for you
C G F
Passive resistance! Where the only view is the right view
C G F G C F
Passive resistance! And it breaks my heart to know there's no heart involved

Put the demographics away, the directors and consultants have the final say
Hired in, take home all the ones who missed for souvenirs, for their kids to play

Passive resistance! It's all programmed by programmers
Passive resistance! You're just a nail underneath their hammers
Passive resistance! And it breaks my heart to know there's no heart in them

Instrumental verse

Nothing can be further removed, not everybody wants to be soothed
Oooh they must be real, people that you never meet and never feel
And they don't feel you

Passive resistance! You get surveyed out of existence
Passive resistance! Just one in a million silent listeners
Passive resistance! It's all programmed by programmers
Passive resistance! You're just a nail underneath their hammers
Passive resistance! And it breaks your heart
To know there's no heart involved, involved, involved
