Lyrics

CHORUS
Poor little England / used to have a United Kingdom / now we get uptight, wind up fighting like children / who's got the patience / for real conversations / far too busy having an opinion
poor little England

I’ve had enough of this separation / all trapped inside our own bubbles of misinformation / no time for discourse no time for conversation / just pick one line then repeat that many times on rotation, no / hesitation no, contemplation no / consideration for the wider implications at all / same old elements of conquer and divide / when all the while the enemy's inside

CHORUS

Well you say what you see / and you see what they say / and now you wanna tell me that you know what you know yeah / when you read your paper by the end of the day / you’re claiming those opinions as your own / well nobody’s gonna tell you what you can and you cannot say / but beware of repeating the words that they’re feeding you every single day

CHORUS

I like spending time just / hanging out in random places and scanning all the faces of the people as they pass me by / yeah and as I sit there and ponder I sometimes just wonder what’s been going on for them in their lives / like this guy that I see he’s no older than me but his face is as old as time / so I sit down there and greet him, I say mate what you seeking in life? He says / I got no money in my pocket and I wanna get paid / you wanna know now? / I got no money in my pocket and I wanna get paid / ooh whoa ooh whoah / I got no money in my pocket and I wanna get paid / you wanna know now? / I got no money in my pocket and I wanna get paid yeah

CHORUS
