Liar liar

Starvation is my champion for avarice is the aim.

Liar liar pacifier

I have the incredulity of a doubting Thomas,
For your spittle soaked lips let slip still born promises
This austerity always rewards the anonymous
And the masters of your plot truly are monstrous

Liar, liar, your pants on fire
We're gonna warm our feet
On your funeral pyre

The law of inversion sticks to you like a glue
If opposites attract you must so love the truth
Transparent as glass you mount your awful attacks
"Be blind to your future, look back to your past"

Think of kids crying on Cyril Smith's creepy lap
As Dando lay dying why did crime stoppers collapse?
Could it be child line was really a trap?
Are her medals rewards for suppressing all that?

Now information requests have just been removed
As prince Andrew himself steps into the news
When buggered by monarchy there's nowt you can do
But posthumous hands will ring fiercely for you

Liar, liar, your pants on fire
We're gonna warm our feet
On your funeral pyre

The law of inversion sticks to you like a glue
If opposites attract you must so love the truth
Transparent as glass you mount your awful attacks
"The train is delayed by a bomb on the track"

Look over there! Where! Anywhere but here
There's a dark creeping shadow called terrorist fear
And although Bin Laden is dead the hydra has many heads
Now just like the Reds, mythical creatures curl up under our beds.

My brain it is spinning working out who is winning
What pieces are left upon the chess board?
There's a devil a dancing in the sandstorm advancing
We're at war with mirages but still people are dying

Liar, liar, your pants on fire
We're gonna warm our feet
On your funeral pyre

The law of inversion sticks to you like a glue
If opposites attract you must so love the truth
Transparent as glass you mount your awful attacks
Why don't Amazon pay any tax?

Wars never won
Corporate debt never paid
Monsters revealed
Only once in the grave
For a perfect system
The system sure stinks
And there's one contradiction
That sure makes me think
Whomever you vote for
Who is it that looses?
Only those we bequeath
Our shortening futures
