Karma police, hard at work.
A prophetic voice for our times (this song was originally released in ’86 but sounds even more relevant today than it did then).
outside the patient millions
who put them in to power
expect a little more back for their taxes
like schoolbooks, beds in hospitals
and peace in our bloody time
all they get is old men grinding axes
the’ve built their private fortunes
on things they can rely:
the club, the secret handshake
the stock exchange and the old school tie
for God and Queen and country
all things they justify (just defy?)
above the sound of ideology clashing
This video is simultaneously fascinating, informative… and anticlimactic.
(Nothing here but amazeballs!)
