lyrics

I haven’t got all the answers or even half the solutions
But if we don’t try we’re part of the pollution
Lethargically diluted disheartened with the movement
We need to lay the foundations to start the revolution

Since farming evolution and food chains have changed
Technology adapting to make nature tamed
But we’re far from that kids still starve disasters reign
That’s why we try to be part of the solution

First things first educate yourself
Not with media they manipulate with wealth
We should be the news, generate as well
‘Cos Knowledge the best tool to elevate ourselves

And if you’re making wealth better check what you spend it on
Locally produced goods are better for everyone
With the exception of one- the market profiteers
Domineering thoughts in the devilish hegemon

“But capitalism is the only system that works”
Well tell that to the kids who are stitching your shirts
For a pittance their innocence inflicted with hurt
For you to live it up the poor have gotta live in the dirt

“But its human nature to be selfish and competitive”
In the past it was normal to have sex with relatives
Like a swine does a nice reminder
That human nature is whatever we do to define us

“So what d’you want another Stalin or Mao?”
Nah they were top down and its startling how
Power corrupts so fuck your partisan vows
We need grass roots democracy starting from now

Rather than bow to the monarchy we need a policy
Of redistribution of wealth enforced properly
We need a free press with a back bone
One that hacks at the top with a big axe and doesn’t hack phones

It’s a battle for hearts and minds thoughts and ambitions
In the belly of the beast fighting a war of position
Against telly and police and corporate decisions
If were convincing they’ll soon face more opposition

If the morons would listen and stop watching Sky News
Try walking a mile in the opposite guys shoes
They might find that it’s just a case of watching the clock
Ticking down like a bomb with a timed fuse

But there’s no hope I doubt that we’ll ever see
A real revolution its insurmountable territory
All nihilism does is empower the enemy
Pick yourself up and get with the counter hegemony

Sound of the remedy VT with the mix of verbal journalism
Got no herbal tea in the mix
It’s real hard lyrical liquor packed with truth
Tell ‘em Joe how you’re gonna spread the facts and proof

I’ll be in the streets putting in work for the movement
Building lasting links between the workers and students
Benefit claimants and mums all learning the blueprint
Connect with the oppressed across the world for improvement

I’ll be doing my best to convince the NF
That the real enemy ain’t black brown or red
It’s the faceless demon that we never will conquer
Unless we spread the message that together we’re stronger
