As Democracy Dies

AS DEMOCRACY DIES

As democracy dies
I’ll stand my ground
And do what the Left
Have always done
And done so well

I’ll stand and sing with my mates
Raising our voices to the sky
So even in their tallest towers
The Bosses will hear and fear.

The bosses may think
They’ve won the war
But without our work
And our skilled hands
They have nothing

 I’ll stand and sing with my mates
Raising our voices to the sky
So sitting in their tallest towers
The Bosses will hear and fear.

 If the factories
All stand idle
If all labour is
Withdrawn, withheld
Their power’s broken

 I’ll stand and sing with my mates
Raising our voices to the sky
So hiding in their tallest towers
Bosses will hear and fear.

 So grow your own
Enough for you
And your loved ones all
On your small plot
Refuse their bribes.

 I’ll stand and sing with my mates
Raising our voices to the sky
So even in their tallest towers
Bosses will shake with fear.
