lyrics

i came down to earth and i came up in a rash
at the handful of people with the hands full of cash
where me and you were just people they knew
and they’re sorry that we didn’t last
oh no they’re digging up gold
so they all get a seat in the sun when they’re old
and they can rule the world in their dressing gowns
is long in the leg and its sick in the head that this world
can make us happy with ourselves

now they’ve found all the cracks to avoid paying tax
like a tribe of true commuters
in seconds flat the whole world has packed
and is moving to bermuda
so hold on cause they’re coming on strong
now a man with a bag is a man with a bomb
and this the reckoning this will keep festering
unless we keep standing
unless we keep questioning this world
we will not be happy with our selves

somewhere along the line
a bird flies
up to its cage and says
“this is between you and i”
and then something intervenes
says its “trying to keep the peace”
with big bucks and one hell of
a big fuck of flying machine
i say there has to be some kind of compromise
like i’ll eat my greens if you stop telling lies
there has to be a way we can all agree
like i’ll take out a pension if you stop trying to kill me

i came down to earth and i came up in a rash
at the handfuls of people with the hands full of cash
where me and you were just people they knew
and they’re sorry that we didn’t last
so hold on cause they’re coming on strong
now a man with a bag is a man with a bomb
and this the reckoning this will keep festering
unless we keep standing
unless we keep questioning this world
we will not be happy with our selves
