God Save Me

from Ucow by Stead



Shivs bleed underground
and Christmas spreads
football game today,
"home fans only" on a warning sign
in red and white
strangers keep away
cause I'm not as human as it seems

I sell what we do not need
it's rubbish but it makes me rich
no I'm not proud but I hide
enough so that I don't realise
what is going on

what is going on?

the neighbourhood on sale
coffee chains
marketing campaigns
to share the blame
of devastating sponsorships
olympic games
the volunteers parade
man, this is all I really need

I will be happy and safe
as long as God will save the shame
as long as I can avoid
to think that I get what I give
and God Save Me

no there's not much I live for
I just pretend it's gonna be fun
are you one of us?
we will share nothing but greed
we'll challenge one another to feed
a bunch of millionaires
then God will not save the Queen
no it will never save those kids
No ... God save me
God Save Me
