Chumbawamba - The Wasteland Lyrics

  • Said the party to the ad-man
  • Well conjure up a gimmick
  • The way to lead an ass
  • Is with a carrot and a stick
  • Dig down for minorities
  • Promise them concessions
  • Ride in on their backs
  • And then teach them all a lesson
  • Unemployment means depression
  • Youre just victims of the recession
  • We can count on their support
  • If we can channel their emotions
  • (chorus)
  • Populate the wasteland
  • Between leisure and the grave
  • Work and pray and place your vote
  • And some day youll be saved
  • All these myths come tailor-made
  • To suit the company director
  • Myths that praise the dignity
  • Of cheap, disposable labor
  • Two different routes
  • To an industrial heaven
  • Work for boss and parliament
  • And all will be forgiven
  • Its the fear of being sacked
  • That lets the boss step up the pace
  • Because the minute you step out of line
  • Theres someone took your place
  • (repeat chorus)
  • Said the mp to the media
  • Cant we juggle this around
  • Sprinkle sugar on the dog shit
  • And well keep the figures down
  • Never let the left hand
  • See whats in the right
  • No-ones any wiser
  • And the problems out of sight
  • Take your democratic choice
  • Take a scheme or starve
  • Job clubs, restart, yts, cps, eas
  • Company profits doubled
  • Wages chopped in half
  • (repeat)
  • (repeat chorus)
  • Offer your life to the one true church
  • In the name of the conservative party
  • The labor party
  • And the liberal alliance
  • The promised land where banks outnumber churches
  • And your cars shall be martyrs to the cause
  • Capitalism in crisis
  • But on the third day it shall rise again
  • But on the third day it shall rise
