Track Name: NHS (National Health Simpsons)
Dismantling the NHS, selling it to the big business,
soon it'll all be privatised, the rich/poor gap is on the rise,
shitty jobs wont pay the rent, let alone health insurance
minimum wage wont cover that, not on zero hour contracts.

Where'd you get the money for, funding another war
when you cant afford to pay, nurses a living wage
three years, full time degrees, now you've scrapped their bursaries,
moan about the situation, blame it on immigration.

Prioritising profits while so many people die, only those with money have the right to stay alive..

DENTAL PLAN.. LISA NEEDS BRACES x3

The papers say "it's Red Alert, the hospitals are getting worse"
"Doctors cant see us all, tighten border control"
"too many people, it cant last, also they're under-staffed"
"come over and steal our jobs, but they wont work they're lazy slobs"

Its the papers job to make us scared, but we all know the moneys there,
take to the streets to have our say, "there is another way"
make corporations pay their tax, so we can have our healthcare back,
the NHS is everyones and you've no right to sell it on.

DENTAL PLAN... LISA NEEDS BRACES
Track Name: ... and the Sticker Reads
If war is the answer, must be a stupid question
When will the killing stop, when will we learn our lesson?
And the social structures of society, don't take into account the majority
Of the billions of people who lose out 'cos of globalisation

CAPITALISM IS A SYSTEM
Feeding and thriving on the exploitation
Of the disregarded voices without any other choices nations
And I know in this world you get nothing for free
But I'd rather be a pauper than sell all my humanity
For a suitcase of corporate spin and a six figure salary

IF IT'S NOT PLANT MILK THEN THE COWS HAVE SUFFERED
Calves being killed right in front of their mothers
And thrown right in the bin 'cos they aint worth anything
And the adverts won't let you see this side
All the deals and the offers make the suffering alright
So many people don't know or worse they don't mind

If you've got oil they'll find a reason
To drop bombs on your country all in the name of freedom
If you've got oil they'll find a reason
To drop bombs on your country all in the name of freedom
If you've got oil they'll find a reason
To drop bombs on your country all in the name of freedom
If you've got oil they'll find a reason
TO DROP BOMBS ON YOUR FUCKING COUNTRY

If war is the answer, must be a stupid question
Track Name: Heist!
Lotus biscuits taste fantastic
Such a shame they're wrapped on plastic
We've journeyed quite far to their place of creation
Hoping for further tasty gestation
There's nothing better than a biscuit with coffee
Or tea or a mocha with oat milk that's frothy
No matter how bourgie you like your hot drinks
They always taste better with Lotus biscuits

No matter what happens we're leaving with biscuits
We've got a heist planned and we're willing to risk it
By hook or by crook we're gonna get biscuits
So open your gates and give us your biscuits

Sustainable palm oil and certified vegan
Not ethically perfect but it's a beginning
Animal products don't need to exist
IN THE CREATION OF TASTY BISCUITS
It's not just the biscuits the spread is amazing
I put it on cakes in the place of a glazing
The blandest of sponges become heaven sent
With the inclusion of blended biscuits

Give us biscuit spread
Give it to us soon
We wanna eat it now
Simply with a spoon
Give us biscuit spread
Give it to us soon
We wanna eat it now
Simply with a spoon

No matter what happens we're leaving with biscuits
We've got a heist planned and we're willing to risk it
By hook or by crook we're gonna get biscuits
So open your gates and give us your biscuits
And your spread
Biscuits and your spread
Your biscuits and your spread
Biscuits and your spread
Your biscuits or your life
Track Name: Hufflepunx
Can you tell me what a bezoar is?
It's a stone from the stomach of a goat
Is there a vegan alternative?
You know I really don't think there is
So I made a vegan bezoar
In my cauldron it is floating
I made it outta soya
A combination of mince and protein
And my potion don't work quite the same
I'd rather that then any animals be in pain

Why can't more potions be suitable for vegans?
You know it don't have to be that way
Why can't more potions be suitable for vegans?
You know it don't have to be that way

Can you tell me what the frogs legs do?
You know I really don't have a clue
In that case shall we just leave them out?
I think that's a really good shout
So we replaced them with a uniQuorn
It's a vegan friendly meat free horn
And it must've had some magic in
'Cos our potion really started bubbling
And our potion worked better than all the rest
No animals hurt in our potions test
YES!

Why can't more potions be suitable for vegans?
You know it don't have to be that way
Why can't more potions be suitable for vegans?
You know it don't have to be that way
Track Name: Airbus
There's four of you and one of them you drag her to the floor,
because holding a banner's more dangerous than fuelling war.
a war that you claim that you're against
well sorry mate you're not even on the fence.
you're hand in hand with the law that supports this war
defending the arms trade, is this what you signed up for when they gave you your badge
made you an officer? to serve and protect? well you're not protecting shit

You're just protecting a system that's fundamentally flawed,
on one had opposing and the other funding war.
I don't know how you sleep at night,
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights

This is our right to protest, this is unlawful arrest
the courts and law are on our side, the judge has decided that
this opposition is justified, we know our right and we'll continue to fight
until you realise though you don't drop the bombs
there's still blood on your hands and this shit is wrong
you've been defending this was all along,
we'll keep on fighting and together we'll stand strong

Stop protecting a system that's fundamentally flawed,
on one had opposing and the other funding war.
I don't know how you sleep at night,
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights

As for the government, i guess there's money to be made
so they sit back and watch as arms dealers trade
in numbers of lives, innocent lost, they only care about their monetary costs
MPs say they're against it, they say this is wrong, yet they still carry on
put their officers on the job to keep the peace, for our own protection,
well we're here for peace and you're just adding aggression

Stop protecting a system that's fundamentally flawed,
on one had opposing and the other funding war.
I don't know how you sleep at night,
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights

In your town, weapons made
profits for the arms trade
act in defiance or do nothing in compliance x4

Stop protecting a system that's fundamentally flawed,
on one had opposing and the other funding war.
I don't know how you sleep at night,
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
protecting the sale of weapons to countries that abuse human rights
Track Name: Reduce, Reuse, Rebel!
Reduse the things you use
Reuse the things you've got
Recycle all the rest, mate
Give what you don't want to the charity shop
So much stuff gets wasted on a daily basis
Society aint bothered by the waste that it's creating

One thing that this world doesn't need
Is all the plastic covered new things destined for the scrap heap
Another thing that this world doesn't need
Is all this greed. All this greed. All this greed greed greed
Nope

Reduse the things you use
Reuse the things you've got
Like the words within this verse
We don't need any new ones
So much stuff gets wasted on a daily basis
Society aint bothered by the waste that it's creating

One thing that this world doesn't need
Is all the plastic covered new things destined for the scrap heap
Another thing that this world doesn't need
Is all this greed. All this greed. All this greed greed greed
One thing that this world doesn't need
Is all these new shiny things
Another thing that this world doesn't need
Is all this greed greed greed greed greed
It's fucking shit

Capitalism is killing us all
Capitalism is killing us all
Capitalism is killing us all
Capitalism is killing everything
DIE

Reduse the things you use
Reuse the things you've got
We'll play this song a thousand times
'Cos we haven't written new ones
So much stuff gets wasted on a daily basis
Society aint bothered by the waste that it's creating

One thing that this world doesn't need
Is all the plastic covered new things destined for the scrap heap
Another thing that this world doesn't need
Is all this greed. All this greed. All this greed greed greed
One thing that this world doesn't need
Is all these new shiny things
Another thing that this world doesn't need
Is all this greed greed greed greed greed
IT'S FUCKING SHIT

So don't go to the shops
If you can stay at home and make stuff with your friends
Don't go to the shops
If you can stay at home and make stuff with your friends
I won't go to the shops
If I can stay at home and make stuff with my friends
Stay at home and make stiff with your friends

Don't go to the shops
If you can stay at home and make stuff with your friends
I won't go to the shops
If I can stay at home and make stuff with my friends
Well I won't go to the shops
If I can stay at home and make stuff with my friends
STAY AT HOME AND MAKE STUFF WITH YOUR FRIENDS
OI!
Track Name: My New World
I don't understand why everyone's so upset
About the way things are
I was born here and I love it here
And it seems to me we did ourselves a favor

Old people won't shut up about the 'Golden Age'
I've heard about your 'Golden Age'
And your generation line nostalgia
Makes me tune right out

Blah Blah, I miss the stars
I heard they look like pinpricks
In our sheet of tin-foil
Hung in the window of a dark room (BIG DEAL!)

They say the sunsets never used to look like this
All blues and greens, they're beautiful
Admit it! They're beautiful.

It was never an apocalypse
It was our rebirth, our brave new world
And World War X gave us chips in the head
Which gave us an edge on the walking dead

I'm not afraid of the living dead
All you gotta do is shoot 'em in the head
They fall right down and let's admit
They were the walking dead a long time ago

You there! The writing on the wall
It's funny how you never talk about that at all
But, as you can see from a thousand miles a way
Exactly where we'd be today

With your pre-coil production
Your genetics disasters
Your net imitations going faster and faster
Your super-colliders ripping holes in space
Your virtual worlds that deny time and place

Well, I'm glad we're here
This is my home
That world destroyed deserves to be gone
It's beautiful place full of new possibilities
The camera's wiped clean for new realities
