Lyrics

There are some bad people on the rise

There are some bad people on the rise They're saving their own skins by Ruining people's lives Bad, bad people on the rise

Young married couple in debt - ever felt had? Young married couple in debt - ever felt had? On a government scheme Designed to kill your dream Oh mum, oh dad Once poor - always poor

Interesting drug The one that you took TELL THE TRUTH - IT REALLY HELPED YOU! An interesting drug The one that you took God, it really really helped you

You wonder why we're only half-ashamed? "Because ENOUGH is TOO MUCH! And look around... ...can you blame us? CAN you blame us?

On a government scheme Designed to kill your dream Oh mum, oh dad Once poor - always poor

Interesting drug The one that you took TELL THE TRUTH - IT REALLY HELPED YOU! An interesting drug the one that you took God, it really really helped you

You wonder why we're only half-ashamed? "Because ENOUGH is TOO MUCH! And look around... ...can you blame us? CAN you blame us?
