UK 2015. This song I wrote to try and reflect the feeling of so many.
You worked for a company that used to pay a living wage until they kicked you out leaving you redundant. Signing on the dotted line making sure you're never late. There's a voluntary offer you take with some reluctance. But then you get a certain sense of de ja vu. It's you're old work place but this time they're not paying you and It's not alright why should we plebs all pay when it's the fault of the banker and the corporate man? Working zero hours and you can't afford to pay the rent so before you know it you're queuing up at the food bank. The media make it look you live a life of overspend but when austerity rules dignity has next to no chance. Don't get a fatal illness 'cause that's no excuse - the press may laugh at you and call it gross pretense. And it's not alright etc. Don't try to blame it on the immigrants ;cause if you do then you're so ignorant - so ignorant. (Inst) Using debt to force through ideology that benefits the few but will all rest all see - It's not alright etc.
