The votes you give that turn you into a slave
The lies your politicians use to dig you a paupers grave
You’re making choices when you don’t know all the facts

You put your head down for the axe

They let you think you know what’s going on
And feed the narrative that keeps you stringing along
You see the shameful way your welfare is attacked
And still put your head down for the axe
You put your head down

Their purpose has never been to make your life worthwhile
And so you lay your head down to their delight
The big black lie that tells you everything 
Is gonna be alright

Hey Hey Hey here comes the axeman

Here comes the Axeman
