Their England is a Lie

Their England is a lie

That was told
When they took the land
That is told
In the books that they prescribe 
That they tell you 
When they take us to war 
To fight and die for them 

Their England is a lie

That the they tell you
To divide and rule 
To scapegoat and demonise
To spread their fear and silence hope

Their England is a lie

That they tell you

Through all that they control

To keep you in your place

As they cash their offshore stakes

And sell the welfare state

There is another England 
Of the Levellers to the Chartists

Of Pankhurst, Wilberforce and Blake

But their England 
It’s a lie.
