lyrics

We all live down by Grand Canal Dock.
Got our last cheque in the news.
All in negative equity.
The banks cold noose.

It sounds like you trusted a politician who
Gets orders from men in Park Lane tailored suits.

Caught the red-eye, built the new line.
Carved our own lives out of debt.
You squandered on your banquets,
On your convoys and your sex.

It sounds like you trusted a politician who
Gets orders from men in Park Lane tailored suits.

Ain't a rhyme.
Better than rainbow.
Ain't a rhyme.
So much better than a raincoat in a storm.
Better than a rainbow.
Ain't a rhyme.

Look at the wreck of a home we’re buildin’
Look at the traditions we’ve made.
The lifeboats on the starboard are are for the masters
Not the slaves.
