North Sea Bubble - Billy Bragg

    I went out drinking with Thomas Paine
    He said that all revolutions are not the same
    They are as different as the cultures
    That give them birth
    For no one idea
    Can solve every problem on Earth

    So don't expect it all to happen
    In some prophesized political fashion
    For people are different
    And so are nations
    You can borrow ideas
    But you can't borrow situations

    In Leningrad the people say
    Perestroika can be explain this way
    The people who told us
    That two and two is ten
    Are now trying to tell us
    That two and two is five

    We're living in a North Sea Bubble
    We're trying to spend our way out of trouble

    You keep buying these things but you don't need them
    But as long as you're comfortable it feels like freedom

    My American friends don't know what to do
    But they'll wait a long time for a Beverley Hills coup

    War! What is it good for
    It's good fo business
