about

This is a tune written via the interweb. Gail sent Doozer a vocal line, he sent back the idea, she said yes, he recorded a full backing track, sent back, she went round Cosmo's recorded her vocals and his Harps, sent it back and Doozer mixed it.... lovely old job

lyrics

I remember when the seeds were planted for this divide
When the heart of our communities that once swelled with pride
stopped beating with the rhythm that they’re on the same side
When greed and the media became our guide
Now we’re in a hole where you’re judged by what you own
and if you can’t afford it, fuck it, get another loan
How can one live without the latest mobile phone?
Our depth has hit the shallows and apart we’ve grown

So when did us and them become you, us and them?
Are we really gonna sit back while we get screwed again?
When we’re all gagged and bound on that fascist fuck train
we’re only gonna have ourselves to blame

I remember when it mattered not about the size of your TV
The bigger picture? No..that’s not what they want you to see
Hundreds of channels just to feed your apathy
Telling you what you want and how your life should be
Does it not occur to you that what’s before your eyes
is just a way of keeping you away from your own minds?
You eat the media with it’s cover ups and lies
The future can fuck off..you need to drop a dress size

This is how us and them become you, us and them
Are we really gonna sit back while we get screwed again?
When we’re all judging each other on that fascist fuck train
We’re only gonna have ourselves to blame

I remember playing kerby with you on the street
and I believed that on the white lines we would always meet
Shame the innocence of childhood was not ours to keep
but why is it I’m wide awake and you choose to sleep?
We’ve got our own kids now..and their future’s in our hands
Their freedom’s everything so get your head out of the sand
Hope is but a dice and you can’t know how it will land
so I’ll meet you on the white lines. Let’s go make a fucking stand

Why did us and them become you, us and them?
Are we really gonna sit back while we get screwed again?
When we’re huddled with our children on that fascist fuck train
they’re only gonna have US to blame.

Can’t you see it’s us and them and not you, us and them?

Are we really gonna sit back while we get screwed again?

Or shall we blow the wheels off that fascist fuck train?

Now’s the time to end their twisted game..
