lyrics

It’s just....
Reins, chains and extortionate bills!
With our briefcases and newspapers, empty pockets to fill
We’re the vultures of a culture seeking menacing thrills
And a nation who are racing falling head over heels

It’s just....
Reins, chains and extortionate bills!
With our work-times, deadlines and medicine pills
Run to the station when it’s raining through the coldness and feel-
That: pressure, debt and stress is now the run of the mill

Faces stagnated where emotions concealed
We spend three quarters of our life to acquire work skills
Yet when our time is up, we’re to the cemetery wheeled.
We pay the cost of the grave that we fill

It’s just....
Reins, chains and extortionate bills!
Never bite the hand that feeds us, it’s the way of the world
We’re like fish in a pond, where we’re caught and then reeled
Because we feast upon the pound that’s on the hook of ideals

It’s just....
Reins, chains and extortionate bills!
We’re manipulated by a system with its license to kill
Where the depiction of a fortune in the mind is instilled
Born free and taxed to death is the way of this world
