They make us walk the line
but it's time we crossed
What do ya think they'll do?
What do you think their doing?
They'll work you 9 to 5
they'll work you late
As they watch their profits soar
you can count your tiny stake
The rich, why they get richer
while you scrub the factory floor
a total contradiction
of everything that you live for

They like to push us round
but we could push back
tell them what we're thinking
tell them all the facts
control is just a myth
their compensating right
they lack imagination
to take it to the fight
No more they'll act as speakers
no more they'll talk the floor
the workers new agenda
is to co-operate outside their laws

We'll take back what is ours
we'll take our share
perceive our future
perfect our stare
take off that shirt and tie
that noose around your neck
that falsifying status
to prove that you're the best
No more the rules control us
no more that paper crown
the times have come full circle
we'll tear the old walls down

We will carry on regardless in the hope that music still has the power to change the blinkered perception of mainstream society. ... more
