Chumbawamba

Chumbawamba were a British alternative music band that had, over a career spanning three decades, played anarcho-punk, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music. The band's anarchist politics exhibit an irreverent attitude toward authority, and the band has been forthright in its stances on issues including animal rights, pacifism (early in their career) and later regarding class struggle, feminism, gay liberation, pop culture and anti-fascism. more »

Aftershave and smoke 
And the same unfunny jokes 
They say they'll take you 
"Anywhere 

But there" 
Believe every half whispered 
Half remembered lie 
Where truth is a luxury 

They can't afford to buy 
Scapegoat 
Looking for a scapegoat 
There's always someone else for 

You to blame 
Backed into a corner 
He barricades his life 
Fastens up the shutters every night 

This island is big enough 
For every castaway 
But most of us are looking round 
For someone else to blame 

Scapegoat 
Looking for a scapegoat 
There's always someone else for 
You to blame
