There is no justice in your nation
Until you can tell truth and lies apart
Your government massage the figures
They’ve made deception a fine art

There’s always devil in the detail
That’s why they keep the truth from you

They stand and face the corporate media
A pantomime to please the crowd
Subterfuge and obfuscate their answers
There’s only so much truth allowed

With financial misdemeanours
They can take you to the cleaners
They keep you out of reach
And feed you scraps to keep your sweet


Devil in the Detail
