I wrote this one in 2010 along with my next one, must have been my George Orwell moment


Prison Britain

Prison Britain

The bars are cold
Of the rain falling round the coast of our land
Congratulations
It’s worked out just the way you planned
So we lower the flag
As the sun sets in the west
Greed has won
By evil you’ve been blessed.

This is prison Britain
Good and bad are all the same
Prison Britain
Our land has a new name.

Forget your morals
As money is the god you bow down to
Suits are uniforms
As the ones in power are now wearing blue
So we lower the flag
As the sun sets in the west
Greed has won
By evil you’ve been blessed.

Planed resistance
Can’t take shape cause the phones have all been tapped
Social networks
Are just windows through which ips are mapped

So we lower the flag
As the sun sets in the west
Greed has won
By evil you’ve been blessed

So we lower the flag
As the sun sets in the west
Greed has won
By evil you’ve been blessed
