    Great snakes are we moving already
    Good gravy did you say it cost a penny or two
    For you
    Well talking bout the bad starts
    My baby brother has already got a gas mask
    It’s a good old fashioned landslide
    Killing with your hands tied
    In the homemade rope
    Set sail babe we read it in the mail - no hope

    Great way to fool me again hun
    Great acting, it’s great what you tell em
    Great Britain won’t stand for felons
    Great British bombs in the Yemen

    Does it seem
    A fever dream
    For all
    The call you made to me you said
    I fear
    One day each year
    For worry
    We shall remember the dead
    And we’ll remember the dead
    So they know that we’re sorry

    And then Carry on
    Great way to fool me again hun
    Great acting, it’s great what you tell em
    Great Britain won’t stand for felons
    Great British bombs in the Yemen

    How could it be the money it’s the vote that matters to me,
    You say you’re hungry but you won’t eat the caraway seed
    Does it matter in the wreckage what should you say?
    I found myself a little peckish last Tuesday

    This is what you signed up for, no questions,
    Reckon we could offer peace time from weapons conventions,
    It’s on the table,
    But It’s no game can’t you hear all our worries for fear

    Carry on
    Great way to fool me again hun
    Great acting, it’s great what you tell em
    Great Britain won’t stand for felons
    Great British bombs in the Yemen

    It’s a good old fashioned landslide
    Killin with your hands tied
    With a homemade rope
    Set sail babe we read it in the mail - no hope

    It’s a total fucking whitewash
    For the people that we might squash
    Ammo from home soil
    Set sail for wherever the fuck got oil this time

    And if it’s not a fucking war crime
    It’s a total waste of your time
    It’s getting so much worse
    Get real kid your country’s been at war since birth now

    And if it’s not a fucking outrage
    What’s it all about babe?
    Now it’s one on one
    Great Britain gonna tell ya where it all went wrong

    And then Carry on
    Great way to fool me again hun
    Great acting, it’s great what you tell em
    Great Britain won’t stand for felons
    Great British bombs in the Yemen
    The debut album 'What Do You Think About The Car?' is available now:

    Every single peace of furniture (including the very camera 's plastic parts were transported by oil or even MADE of oil...). What would those Arabs DO WITH IT??? That's right, emigrate to Europe and USA as refugees.

      Basically, how the people of Britain ignore what their country is doing in Yemen (bombing the ever love shit out of them), and eating up what ever their country tells them.
      Edit: and also how Britain is purposefully targeting hospitals and supply routes (where the line 'if it's not a fucking war crime it's a waste of your time' comes from) and how their giving Yemen's enemies British planes and bombs.

    The awakening of someone politically left. Sitting at the table and watching your family excuse the blights of humanity, gleefully cheer when people die.
