Meat Beat Manifesto

Meat Beat Manifesto, often shortened to Meat Beat or MBM, is an electronic music group originally consisting of Jack Dangers and Jonny Stephens formed in 1987 in Swindon, UK. The band, fronted by Dangers (the only permanent member), has proven versatile over the years, experimenting with techno, dubstep, jungle (drum'n'bass), IDM, industrial, dub, and jazz fusion while touring the world and influencing major acts such as Nine Inch Nails, The Chemical Brothers, and The Prodigy. Some of the band's earlier work has been credited with influencing the rise of the trip-hop, big beat, and drum and bass genres. more »

Victims of opportunity
De-sensitised, conceived in fantasy
Another under-achiever
Kicked around, a disbeliever

What I don't understand is what it takes
To make a man so unstable, insane
A compulsion overrides, the devotion
The power over life and death

Feeding the obsession
The stimulated loss of breath
Re-fuelling the repression
It's as if the will to power

Becomes stronger by the hour
Can peace of mind ever be ensured?
And will the victim ever be cured?

I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am

Systematically removing
Any obstacles which may get in the way
We're speeding up the downward spiral
Immunize against reprisal

Any hope of a solution
Fades away into disillusion
This is how the problem stands today
Stabilize, recognize

The perspective which stares you in the eyes
The shape of things to come
It's dumb to think that you'll overcome
This kind of behaviour can never be ensured
But can it ever be cured?

I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am

I was dreaming we were somewhere else
The time was displaced
Your memory faltered, my memory erased
It's easy to recognize

Every time you look at yourself
It stares you right in the eyes
It stares you right in the eyes
It stares you right in the eyes

I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
I am the Son of Sam
I am the Son of Sam, I am, I am, I am
