“Uniform”
Artist: Bloc Party
Albums: A Weekend in the City (2006)

There was a sense of disappointment as we left them all
All the young people looked the same
Wearing their masks of cool and indifference
Commerce dressed up as rebellion

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be hurt, we can't be hurt

Did you forget your blues on the weekend?
Think about more things to buy
The TV taught me how to sulk and love nothing
And how to grow my hair long

'Cause we're so handsome and we're so bored
So entertain us, tell me a joke
Make it long, make it last
Make it cruel, just make me laugh
We can't be hurt, we can't be hurt

So why do you go picking fights that you'll lose?
(When you have entertainment, when you have things to pass the time)
So why do you go thinking thoughts that are above you?
(You can be happy, just play dumb, you can be happy, just play dumb)
'Cause I was brave, intelligent; I could have been a hero
No-one can be trusted under the age of fourteen
We tell ourselves we're different
I've gotten so good at lying to myself

Oh!
All my pain and honour is used up
Oh! Oh! Oh!
All my guns are rusted

So when're you gonna realise
Those are not your wrongs to right?
Have another life, have another drink

I am a martyr, I just need a motive
I am a martyr, I just need a cause
I'm a believer, I just need a moment
I'm a believer, I just need a cause

We're finding it hard to break the mould
We're finding it hard to be alone
We're finding it hard to excite ourselves
We have nothing at all to say

Uniform
Uniform
Uniform

There was a sense of disappointment as we left them all
All the young people looked the same
