Who's In Control
British Sea Power Lyrics


Oh, were you not told? Do you not know?
Everything around you is being sold
Do you not care? Will you not bear?
Everybody else is going spare

What's yours and mine
Does this escape you all the time?
Sometimes I wish
Protesting was sexy on a Saturday night

Would you ever, would you ever
Go down, down, down, down
To fight, fight, fold your snap
Fold your snap and fight

Over here, over there
Over here, every fucking where

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way

It's militant, not military
Welcome everybody, we're not all that scary
I'm a big fan of the local library
I just read a book but that's another story

Yours and mine
They get mixed up all of the time
I wish sometimes
Protesting was sexy on a Saturday night

So would you ever, would you ever
Go down, down, down, down
Fight, fight, fold your snap
Fold your snap and fight

Over here, over there
Over here, every fucking where

I'll never be, I'll never see
I'll never be what you want me to be

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way

Over here, over there
Over here, every fucking where
Over here, over there
Over here, every fucking where

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way

Love this song. I think it used to be called Pyrex. I too am a big fan of my local library. Hannah, if you're mainly into american hardcore rock bands, I'm amazed you're even here, but very glad that you are :-)

Have you ever heard of Airbourne Toxic Event? There very comparable to BSP.

Doesn't anyone know what this song is about? How people are very inactive about protesting and revolting against their governments and inequality. More than anything this song is important now all over the world esp, with the occupy wall street movement growing on. I thought this was just an upbeat party song until I started listening to the lyrics.

My favourite thing about British Sea Power is the name.
