Steam Packet (Big Business song)

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

New material in Progress for album called Election

 

Who is indebted to who

When they provide vital links

They don’t like the deal

They just go bust

 

When they employ so many

who owns who

in the name freedom

What can you do

 

big business is kind

big business is tolerant

When they make lots of money

for offshore bank accounts

 

Western democracy told you that you were free

while the birds and bees keep you busy

revelation at the bottom of your glass

that you were sold what you already owned

Interest Banked

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Lyrics, new stuff for new album Election.

 

They are taking your money

have no interest in you, funny

that 5 percent the debtor pays, keeps one under the water

trying to swim but the bank has his foot on you

 

Interest not in what one does

don’t want to say the obvious

takes a fee and not the cost

 

three times the amount over 30 years

society says pay your bill

the deal is  worth it

While there is a white line to suck

don’t want to say the obvious

Interest not in what one does

don’t want to say the obvious

Interest not in what one does

takes a fee, not the cost

 

Competition is human nature

to get your fair share

thirty million and he can’t even spend it

the inadequacy of it and he is not even there

 

Interest not in what one does

don’t want to say the obvious

takes a fee, not the cost

 

 

 

Stand up please

Unreleased,  in progress, new album Election

 

Sometimes I want to say it’s wrong
Stand up and tell them, it’s a joke

So many people

Trying to make it work

so many views

to much to stand & vote

 

Rich want to be protected

as do the poor

If you have something to lose

You fight to protect it

 

There is nothing wrong with love here

People get there when they get there

Improve myself, but I am not alone

Improve society any how

 

too many people

I don’t recognise them

Walking down the street

lipstick kisses on their neck

 

I see them, but I don’t see them

I believe in the unbeliever

The ones that don’t understand

depend on the ones elected

The ones that are not represented (Where do they go)

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

From the new album ‘Election’ unrecorded

 

Where do they go, the one’s that lost

the ones, that are not represented

the one’s that are lost

who tried for something better

but did not get it

 

Democracy divides by the choice you make

putting one side against the other, with a loser  guaranteed

 

It is not freedom

Even though there is choice

a choice that was not defined

by you and I

but by halls of power

by the people that should know better

 

How can it be when all people want to be free

Can breathe so easily, yet can not live by one another

that one can be so afraid and close the door on another

 

Democracy divides by the choice

put one side against the crack

with  a loser guaranteed

 

There has got to be another way

there has got to be another way

there has got to be another way
