And I worked real hard ’til that company closed down
They gave my job to another man
On half my wages in some foreign land
And when I asked how could this be
Any good for our economy?
I was told nobody cares
So long as they make money when they sell their shares
Can you hear us? Are you listening?
No power without accountability!
Later on Billy says “I guess its true, nobody cares/’Til those petrol bombs come spinning through the air” and I’m not sure I agree with that, but when he says “The ballot box is no guarantee that we achieve democracy/Our leaders claim their victory when only half the people have spoken” what I hear is: Get.Out.The.Vote.
