divide and rule
Make the pensioners hate the “Pakis” and the Germans hate the Jews
They know if we stay divide then they can’t ever lose
You’re allowed to murder in God’s, but not in Allah’s name
And if Her Majesty’s swans get eaten – asylum speakers are to blame!
How can a black man and a white man get sacked by the same firm
Yet still blame each other for their situation - will we never learn?
How can a lesbian hate the disabled, or a mother use child-slavery?
How can David Blunkett – a blind man – hate a skin colour he can’t even see?
If one oppressed group hates another, we’ll never ever be free.
Muslims and Christians unite under the banner of love
And shove it up the arse of the class that shits on us from above
Let the potential of humanity be sown
Nurture it, and let it grow
Let those in the most abject poverty realise that they themselves can
blow apart the institutions that exploit them, live on their own terms and learn to forgive us for buying the shoes they made for a dollar a day, in temperatures that reach up to 40 degrees, for the bosses that suck their blood like leeches until we make a change
BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRR! One solution revolution!
BBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR! But what kind of revolution?
BBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR! A Lenin kind of revolution?
BBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR! A Gandhi kind of revolution?
BBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR! A Jesus kind of revolution?
BBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRR! We all need a revolution!
The cry of us against them has never been so clear
And we are many and they are few and I can sense the revolution getting near.
