Do the lyrics lose ya?

Do the lyrics lose ya?
Only the music moves ya?
Are the words really worthless?
Do our protests mean nothing?

Told we have freedom of speech just don’t you dare speak out
Civil liberties are under attack in the name of false security
Terrorist are the new boogie men there could be one in every street
So ID cards enforced on us all would make you bloody weep

New anti terror laws were thrown out on its ears
Traitors screamed the tabloids feeding off the public fear
Accused of being appeasers for speaking out about the war
While they stand around the cenotaph remembering those who fought for

Do the lyrics lose ya?
Only the music moves ya?
Are the words really worthless?
Do our protests mean nothing?

Democracy’s a farce
The rich shit on the poor
But no one gives a fuck cos big brother s on channel 4
It’s all done with sleight of hand
It’s smoke and mirrors mate
And before you fucken know it it’ll be too fucken late
Do the lyrics lose ya?
Only the music moves ya?
Are the words really worthless?
Do our protests mean nothing?

Marching down a city street protesting about the war
Surrounded on both sides by the stewards and the law
Try to break away, the police on your case
Using the excuse that they keep the public safe

Truncheon smashing skull CS gas in your face
Riot police riot dogs you have to up the pace
Running for your life keeping one step ahead
Seen that look in the coppers face he wants to see you dead so
Do the lyrics lose ya?
Only the music moves ya?
Are the words really worthless?
Do our protests mean nothing?

Democracy’s a farce
The rich shit on the poor
But no one gives a fuck cos big brother s on channel 4
It’s all done with sleight of hand
It’s smoke and mirrors mate
And before you fucken know it it’ll be too fucken late
