I’m living in the UK
I see the pain and suffering everyday
A life lived through austerity
Homeless in doorways, parks, in tents
Families evicted can’t pay their rents
Child poverty barbarity

And I’m living in the UK
I feel ashamed everyday
No progress just stagnation
Life in a third world nation

People whose lives are controlled by debt
Stranglehold mortgages around their necks
Food banks commonplace
Rich getting richer from the poor they’re taxing
High streets closing and transport collapsing
Infrastructure disgrace

And I’m living in the UK
I feel ashamed everyday
No progress just stagnation
Life in a third world nation





Healthcare suffering
Police decreasing
Distrust and isolation
Means hatred is breeding
Decay and neglect in the town and city
Violent crime is up
Causing pain and misery

Right wing media right in your face
Using fear tactics keep you in your place
Fake news leading
Politicians using lies to protect their position
Cheating, scheming feeding their ambition
Democracy is bleeding

Living in the UK
I feel ashamed everyday
No progress just stagnation
We’re living in a third world nation
