Lost lyrics: You Lied To Us (2013)

You yellow-bellied, two-faced, underhanded feckless sods
Your words are less than worthless, your promises all rot
You blackguards, heartless nincompoops with suppurating brains
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied again
you LIED to us

Let's make a list:

(Bank bailouts go to bonuses
Closing Guantanamo
Surgical strike drones
Friendly fire
WMD on BBC
The NHS is safe
Asylum seekers eat babies
Eastern Europeans will take our pets for food
Work is noble so do it for free
Work is noble and will make us free
Tax is best spent on bombs
The welfare state is for the lazy
Do you believe me yet?)

You lily-livered, bottom-feeding expenses-skimming scum
Your lives are built on bullshit boys, just look at what you've done
You scandal-setting, whore-begotten thieves of all that's right
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied and lied and lied
you LIED to us

You tabloid terrifyers, you purveyors of truthless puke
You spin-doctor specialists, you self-abusing crooks
You power-hungry sub-human pretenders to the throne
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied alone
You LIED to us


(The list goes on:
Royalty makes money
God bless our betters
To be rich is the aim
Education is a privilege not a right
College is there to prepare you for a job
Healthcare should be better the more you pay
An empty bedroom is a sin
But squatting is illegal
The world was made by God
Eight thousand years ago
Those dinosaurs? The devil's work
Oh and there's only one kind of love
That between a man and a woman
Aids is a gay plague
God hates fags
That girl was asking for it
Dressing like a slag
I'm getting the hang of these lies now)

Through right wing television you spew out your filth, your well-honed lies
Newspaper headlines give us someone daily to despise
A nation of zombies blaming each other for their ills
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied,
