031 – Time to Break Out

Time to Break Out

Never before have I witnessed 
Contempt for the truth on this scale 
As ministers queue up to lie to
Defend an intolerable tale

They feel their careers’ are unthreatened 
That there’s nothing can bring them to book
As long as they just keep on lying
They don’t care how all of this looks 

So they lie and deceive to our faces 
And expect that we’ll just stay in tow
So we have to make sure that despite that
They end their careers as they go

When Cummings resigns, and he will soon
It must not be the end of this mess
All those who chose to support him 
Have questions they need to address

This wasn’t some error of judgement
Or a momentary lapse under strain
It was carefully thought out and conscious
And it sought to deceive us again

These people are not to be trusted
They’ve shown such contempt for us all
We cannot and must not accept this
Let’s break ourselves out of their thrall.
