lyrics

Blame the bankers
Don't blame yourselves
You were trying to get by when the bottom fell
And when the sky knew no limit
You couldn’t lasso the Moon
That dream was reserved for the chosen few.

Blame the bankers
You know it’s true
Cos there’s no one on Earth who works harder than you
Blame the bankers
Making a killing
On the miserable failure of Capitalism.

Don’t try to fool yourself
There’s a war going on
Mr Have, Mr Never Will
Don’t try to fool yourself
When you can’t feed your kids
You know it’s personal.

Blame the bankers
Don’t blame yourselves
You were trying to get by when the bottom fell
Powerless fathers swallow their pride
While the grand illusion keeps the dream alive.

Don’t try to fool yourself
There’s a war going on
Mr Have, Mr Never Will
Don’t try to fool yourself
When you can’t feed your kids
You know it’s personal.
