Days like these - Billy Bragg

    The party that became so powerful by sinking foreign boats
    Is dreaming up new promises because promises win votes
    And being resolute in conference with the ad man's expertise
    The majority by their silence shall pay for days like these

    The right to build communities is back behind closed doors
    'Tween government and people stands the right arm of the law
    And shame upon the patriot when the mark of the Bulldog Breed
    Is a family without a home and a pensioner in need

    Those whose lives are ruled by dogma are waiting for a sign
    The Better Dead Than Red Brigade are listening on the line
    And the liberal, with a small L cries in front of the TV
    And another demonstration passes on to history
    Peace, bread, work, and freedom is the best we can achieve
    And wearing badges is not enough in days like these
