They keep you doped you with religion, sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
I utterly despise the cult of celebrity.
But if I were to have heroes (and I don’t), Lennon would be one of them. The song ‘Working Class Hero’ is Lennon at his best. Acerbic, honest, unflinching, brutal. And yet compassionate.
Nothing the middle-of-the-road McCartney did ever came close.
