Treachery

Before dawn it's always darkest
Stand up now and claim this crisis
Put politics back in to our hearts
Does this not feel like a fresh start?

One hundred and seventy two MPs
Reveal their latent treachery
Westminster at war with our streets
Stand Up! Stand Up! Stand Up with me

Damned your lies of apathy
We'll vote for choice not celebrity
Reveal the split in society, and
Stand Up! Stand Up! Stand Up with me

In losing the vote for what is right
Illusion and collusion has come to light
Now we see who's on each side
Stand Up! Stand Up! Stand Up and fight

No more headlines
No more lies
No more MPs
Claiming lives
Stand Up! Stand Up! Stand Up and fight
Kick those bastards out in to the night
