lyrics

The Divided Kingdom

My brothers my sisters are you feeling alright?
sometimes I struggle, yes i struggle to see the light
This divided kingdom, fractured and astray
Strange time these and they get stranger by the day

Lies and Hypocrisy
Fuck your false morality
Don’t expect me
to accept your authority

But our world keeps turning round
We gotta keep our feet firm on the ground
Stand up and stand proud
Don't ever let them drag you down

My brothers my sisters are you feeling alright?
How do you feel about the end of days
Its going to be a long dark night

We the human beings are branded by a state
The overlords raping mother earth
And sealing our fate

Lies and Hypocrisy
Press gang conformity
Try to fool me
with your bullshit diplomacy

But the world keeps turning round
We’ve gotta keep our feet firm on the ground
Stand up stand proud
Don't ever let them drag you down

Fuck Austerity, and Fuck your larceny, Fuck the inequality and Fuck your lack of empathy
Fuck your hypocrisy ,Fuck your depravity, Fuck the aristocracy and Fuck the royal family
Fuck the Autocracy, and Fuck your blatant thievery, Fuck all your lies There is no Democracy

But the world keeps turning round
We gotta keep our feet firm on the ground
Stand up and stand proud
Don't ever let the bastards drag you down
