I remember hearing this song ages ago – lately I downloaded it again, just for kicks – I’d missed the chorus. This time, I actually paid attention to the rest of the lyrics…well worth quoting in full:

Here we go again
Here we go go go
To the temple of consumption
Get your gear and start to spend
Here we go go go with total dedication

Here we go again
Here we go go go
To the temple of consumption
Get your gear and start to spend
Here we go
Here we go
Here we go

As some sort of prototype I serve to be you see tomorrow’s dream has never been part of me consume today and leave the rest behind you tomorrow’s a surprise party buy a ticket too

faster livin’ faster live as fast as you’re able eat the food while it’s still hot on the table spend if you can the greens are burning in your pocket if you spend it right now you’ll get as high as a rocket

Everything you don’t use will loose it’s value tomorrow consume too much today and you can always borrow this paradigm’s the best one since the day of creation get your gear and shape up this is the revelation shop till you drop has built this civilization don’t believe what you hear ’bout the next generation if you go wtih a lot of toys you’ll slip away a happy man the greens are burning in you pockets just spend it while you can

Here we go again
here we go go go
to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go
here we go
here we go

The moon and the stars they all look down on me and say there’s a correlation between tomorrow and today I say you won’t gain a thing on that sick repudiation we’re right here right now that’s the only situation you can’t fool me we live on borrowed time so I spend the funds I have to the nickel and dime check it in check it out it’s not a matter of contention get your gear and shape up and join the church of consumption

Use it in wear it out than throw it all away go get yourself a new one all you gotta do is pay because the more I will get the more I will own with a lot of things around me I won’t never fell alone I work around the clock just to earn my livin’ and I wanna get I won’t spend my funds on givin’ now I’m acting irresponsible is that what you say hey somalia got my toaster just the other day

Not so bad, eh? It’s weird, cause the track is totally dancy, fairly bouncy, and unless you’re paying attention to the lyrics, just way upbeat.

Reminds me of the bit in Surplus – where you see a single billboard in the street in Cuba with two words on it; Consume Less.

Well, like they say…

Here We Go Again…
