about

A song about the 2008 financial crisis.

lyrics

is there another body hiding there
with words to speak and time to spare
is there another soul that gives a damn
with thoughts on how we get out of this jam

there’s no unpicking it, there’s no unraveling
i can’t even find one end to begin
there’s no easy answer to this twisted tangle
and there’s no easy way we can win

saw a banker on the tv today
he was sure that all the problems were going away
we didn’t need to change a thing anyway
’cos there’s no way we can win

sing high, sing low
sing flat, sing ho de ho
sing out, sing in
’cos there’s no way we can win

is there another ideology
with easy rules to follow that are plain to see
is there another shape that we could take
that would help us to see how we get out of this scrape

there is no money for to pay our way
’cos it grew wings then just flew away
as to where it’s gone, we really can’t say
and there's no way we can win

saw a politician take to the stage
the only way he figured that we could be saved
we should all learn to speak Mandarin
’cos there’s no way we can win

sing high, sing low
sing flat, sing ho de ho
sing out, sing in
’cos there's no way we can win
