It has come to my attention about these new laid laws
And it's my recommendation that we should stay indoors
We all need policing if we can't look after our own
All going to jail or the mental home

We have to be careful about who we elect
Cause what they seem to not know amounts to neglect
We all need the system to sometimes work for us
Coming in by ambulance or commandered bus

There's bills to be paid and criminal bills
They're only interested in filling their tills
Marginalised and sent to the back
Do what you're told or get the sack

The system doesn't work for us
And that is a fact
If the system doesn't work for us
We should take it back

As for good causes and charity
Let's start with the state
And if it's not the priority
It's probably too late

Then all the human reservoirs
Trying to get a life
Just a little way would do
Instead of so much strife

There's bills to be paid and criminal bills
They're only interested in filling their tills
Marginalised and sent to the back
Do what you're told or get the sack

The system doesn't work for us
Yet we pay our tax
If the system doesn't work for us
Then we should take it back

Don't you think there's ample time to do your turn so cutely
Remember that absolute power corrupts absolutely

So ban all the bombs that represent what I say
Cause it's not your life that you are givin' away
The system is broken and we're not insured
We got no receipt and it was made abroad

There's bills to be paid and criminal bills
They're only interested in filling their tills
Marginalised and sent to the back
Do what you're told or get the sack

The system doesn't work for us
And that is a fact
If the system doesn't work for us
Then we should take it back

The system doesn't work for us
And that is a fact
If the system doesn't work for us
We should take it back

The system doesn't work for us
And yet we pay our tax
If the system doesn't work for us
We should take it back

You gotta take it back, you gotta take it back
The system, you gotta take it back
You gotta take it back, you gotta take it back
The system, you gotta take it back

You gotta take it, take it, take it, take it back
You gotta take it, take it, take it, take it back
Talk about the system, you gotta take it back
Yeah, the system, we gotta take it back

You gotta take it back, you gotta take it back, you gotta take it back
