Skyclad - Turncoat Rebellion lyrics

Drawers of water
Hewers of wood
Biting their tongues as if they know what's good for them
Floating voters perched high upon fences in flame

Charmed by pipes
Drugged with ale
Simple minds
Born to fail
Father please tell a tale of Turncoat Rebellion

Watch us quietly disappear
At the call for volunteers
Eager to please
Keep your noses to the grindstone
Eager to please
Your shoulders to the wheel

Tuggers of forelocks
Doffers of caps
Blinded by greed they stepped into the traps laid for them

Given a video-satellite dish
National Lottery, Saturday wish
Simple lives, tropical fish in habitat aquaria

Mad as hell but afraid to speak
Our thin red line is a yellow streak
Eager to please
Keep your backs to the plough
Eager to please
As we grow so we weep

Charmed by pipes
Drugged with ale
Simple minds
Born to fail
Father please tell a tale of Turncoat Rebellion
