about

"I don't even know why I said it. It was like it wasn't even me. Like I was there, listening to someone else use my mouth. I mean, I would NEVER say that! What must they all think of me?" - Anthony Blunt

lyrics

Verse 1
The handsome reporter says ‘don’t make a sound’
As they cover your mouth with the cold black tape
They promised a garden made of oil and steel
Building an empire of greed, war and rape

Chorus
Yellow bellied motherfuckers burn the hospitals down
Yellow bellied motherfuckers burn the colleges down x2

Verse 2
Hallelujah! Praise the lord
I woke up on fire
I bow to my TV set
My god the liar.
I clap my hands and walk the line
Cover myself and fold, fold, fold

Chorus

verse 3
The burning black headlines read ‘don’t be afraid.
Report you neighbours and reap the rewards’
A nation imprisoned
Freedom beneath the sword
