The Worst Lie of All.

amazonitunesGoogle Music

Sure a man who makes money is entitled to keep it but
Keeping your money won’t help you to sleep
No better than you already do
‘Cos people go hungry and people go cold
Not a mile from where you rest your bones
And you know
I don’t blame you
You only pay what you’re entitled to
Playing strictly within the rules
Of the chosen few
And it’s not your fault, but that don’t make it right
To victimise and villainise the little guy who tries
Oh how we try
But they’ve a policy for inequality
The gap gets wider all the time
Now we feel like we’re swimming against the tide
I’ve always felt I stood
On the side of what was right and good
To oppose the greed I never understood
It’s just the way that I was made
But these past years I’ve seen
Propaganda from the hate machine
Saying that we all live beyond our means
And we’re taking all we can
That we don’t wanna work, we don’t wanna help
We don’t wanna pitch in, we only think about ourselves
But that’s the worst lie of all
‘Cos it’s them that won’t help
It’s them that don’t care
It’s them that walk the castle walls while we stand out there
Begging for forgiveness for doing nothing wrong
But they’ve a policy for inequality
The gap gets wider all the time
Now we feel like we’re swimming against the tide
We’re not asking for much, just to be seen
Not as a statistic
But as a human being
Is that so much to ask?
And I know that there are those on both sides
Who would bend the rules and try to run and hide
From our accusing eyes
So don’t paint us, we won’t paint you
As bad guys and monsters who only look out for yourselves
And simply don’t care
But you’ve a policy for inequality
The gap gets wider all the time
Now we feel like we’re swimming against the tide
They’ve a policy for inequality
The gap gets wider all the time
Now we feel like we’re swimming against the tide
